Abstract

The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Association for Information Systems (AIS) engaged in a project to revise the Information Systems Curriculum. The IS2010 model curriculum has been widely used for nearly a decade. However, its value may be decreasing as new approaches to model curricula have been introduced. The AIS and ACM established an exploratory taskforce which found there have been substantial changes in the IS field, and that current graduates' technical skills do not appear to meet industry needs. The IS discipline must express its core in terms of a standard curriculum that meet stakeholder demands. A joint ACM/AIS taskforce on the Information Systems Model Curriculum (IS2020) was created to develop new IS curriculum guidelines. This panel will introduce the work of the IS2020 taskforce. Panelists will introduce an initial report. This session should be of interest to faculty and administrators developing college-level curricula in IS.
