Does the Instructor's Experience as a Practitioner Affect the Purpose and Content of the Undergraduate Systems Analysis and Design Course?
Burns, Timothy J.
Information Systems Education Journal, v10 n1 p37-46 Feb 2012
This paper reports the results of a survey and follow-up interviews that were administered to instructors of the undergraduate systems analysis and design course, a core course of the Information Systems curriculum. The goal of this research was to learn if the background of the instructor, in terms of industry experience, affects the purpose and content of the course. The survey results indicate that there are significant differences between instructors with no practitioner background and those with prior industry experience.
