Make It Relevant and They Just May Learn It
Baugh, Jeanne M.
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n7 p14-20 Dec 2011
There are many different approaches to teaching Information Systems courses. Studies have shown that if the student is interested in the topic, they just may have a more productive classroom experience. This paper documents the practice of structuring assignments around topics that are of interest to each individual student. This method has been successful in courses from the freshman level up to the doctoral level. For each of the classes described in this paper, the students are given a framework to follow for the assignments, and then asked to individualize the assignment relevant to their interests. Student attitudes toward the courses are discussed, along with recommendations for course structure and content.
