Information systems educators face a number of challenges in the current environment, including dealing with declining enrollment, preparing students for the changes in the profession and updating curriculum to integrate new ideas and technologies. These challenges make sharing IS education-related knowledge and practices especially critical.

This track provides an opportunity for information systems educators and researchers to exchange ideas, techniques, and applications through a combination of workshops, panels and paper presentations.  The focus is on innovation and quality advances in IS and MIS instruction and curriculum. Different submission topics are welcome, ranging from papers aimed at improving the teaching of specific course to “big picture” papers intended to address broad topics.  Submissions using information systems technology to advance education in other disciplines are also welcome.
