The Power of an MIS Degree: Inspiring Students by Connecting with Innovators
Lawrence, Cameron; Clouse, Shawn; Firth, David; Evans, Gerald; Stephens, Nathan
Information Systems Education Journal, v12 n5 p37-41 Aug 2014
Recently the ["Information Systems Education Journal"] (ISEDJ) introduced a new area within its case study category that seeks to capture and disseminate successful classroom practices and teaching strategies. The primary motivation behind this enterprise is the construction of a repository that will help new academics draw from successful classroom strategies and techniques that have been successfully employed by peers around the world. This paper is a contribution toward this inaugural effort. The aim of this paper is to share a website we developed that helps our department tackle several challenging problems including the active engagement of students throughout the MIS curriculum, recruiting students to the MIS major and connecting our students and program to innovators throughout our region. Through this site we are effectively showing our students the importance of gaining a deeper understanding of technology and how studying MIS can help one pursue almost any career imaginable. This paper describes the site we developed and clearly shows how others can implement this format within their programs. Finally, this is applicable to all courses within the MIS Model Curriculum.
