Information Oriented Technology Curriculum Design and Development: The Need for A Paradigm Shift
Developing information systems curriculum has been a topic of discussion by information system educators and industry practitioners for many years. While the demand for information systems professionals continues to increase, the dynamic nature of the field will continue to challenge information systems educators to be creative and innovative in their approaches to curriculum development. The proposed paradigm attempts to accentuate the planning and the implementation of academic programs that require computing and communications technologies, and is oriented to the new breed of students. This paradigm has been utilized as a framework in developing information systems programs at several academic institutions. The paradigm encapsulates five common components that are considered to be effective for curriculum development in information systems (curriculum development, curriculum contents faculty, technical resources, teaching methodology, and faculty). These components will contribute to successful academic program implementation.
