A Systemic Approach in Designing Common Service Modules in the Subject Computing (IT/IS).
Yip, Willie
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University's strategic plan for 2001 stipulated that a credit-based system should be adopted for all of its programs. The Department of Computing provides service teaching in computing to all departments at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, necessitating the standardization of computing instruction. One of the issues that needs to be addressed in the conversion of existing programs to a credit-based system is the maximum use of common subjects. This paper reports on a systemic approach in the design of common service modules in the subject of computing. It presents the findings of current teaching of the subject of computing, presents the views of course leaders and local managers on their requirements on the subject, and proposes viable common service modules in information technology/information systems (IT/IS) to cater to the needs of many students who are non-computing majors. It was found that the course leaders of this institution and managers of some local organizations have similar requirements for the education and training given to students. (AEF)
