AMCIS 2024 SIGED IS EDUCATION TRACK
Call for Minitrack Proposals
We invite the submission of Minitrack proposals for the “IS in Education, IS Curriculum, Education and Teaching Cases” Track for the 30th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2024), which will be held on August 15-17, 2024, in Salt Lake City, Utah. AMCIS 2024 will bring together academics and industry professionals from around the world to exchange knowledge related to the AMCIS 2024 theme, Elevating Life through Digital Social Entrepreneurship.
Information systems (IS) Education plays an important role in enabling a more equitable and socially conscious digital future. However, IS educators face several challenges in the current environment, including dealing with declining enrollments, reaching out to marginalized populations, preparing students for the changes in the profession, and updating curriculum to integrate new and emerging ideas and technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, augmented and virtual reality, blockchain, and internet of things among others. These challenges make sharing IS education-related knowledge and practices especially critical. Therefore, it is important that leading conferences, such as AMCIS, include a strong IS Education track. SIGED is uniquely positioned to organize an IS Education track as the official AIS special interest group on education.
This track provides an opportunity for IS educators and researchers to exchange ideas, techniques, and applications through a combination of workshops, panels, and paper presentations. Different submission topics are welcome, ranging from papers aimed at improving the teaching of specific courses to big-picture papers intended to address broad topics. In constantly changing times full of technological disruption, much of our focus is on digital innovation and emerging technologies as well as quality advances in IS instruction and curriculum. Consistent with the conference theme, we particularly invite submissions that focus on IS education in marginalized communities and the role of IS education in promoting digital equity and social entrepreneurship. Submissions using information systems technology to advance education in other disciplines are also welcome.
