Abstract

The purpose of this panel is to present a draft of the revised undergraduate IS curriculum recommendation document to the IS community. The panel presentation will focus on the key changes compared to the current curriculum recommendation (IS 2002), including a) the significantly modified outcome expectations, b) the revised structure, which separates the core topics from the elective topics, c) the key elements of the revised core topics, d) a revised course structure, and e) the task force recommendations regarding the use of web-based collaboration technologies and an editorial structure for the ongoing maintenance of the curriculum. The panelists will all be members of the ACM/AIS undergraduate curriculum revision task force.
