Integrating the Wall Street Journal into AIS Courses
Kohlmeyer, James M., III
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n5 p9-16 May 2008
While it is important for accounting information systems (AIS) students to understand computer technology, internal controls and business processes, such knowledge is of little use without reference to appropriate contexts. Integrating Wall Street Journal (WSJ) readings and discussions into AIS classes can enrich learning by stimulating discussions based on real-life experiences. This article illustrates how the WSJ can be used in AIS courses to reinforce learning in key areas, such as information privacy, data security, identity theft, and business continuity.
