*Innovation in IS Education: Creative Approaches to Today's Opportunities
and Challenges*

In today’s technology- and data-centric global world, the role of an IS
educator is both exciting and challenging. We are helping students to be
prepared to deal with competitive pressures, global issues, and complex
problems. These challenges—coupled with ever-changing technologies,
evolution of systems, generational differences, gaps between curriculum
outcomes and industry requirements, and the evolving disciplinary
landscape—make this a challenging time to be an IS educator or an
administrator responsible for IS education. Every challenge does, however,
also provide an opportunity for those who can adapt and innovate.

This minitrack will explore a variety of innovative topics that will assist
educators in tackling these challenges and contributing to the successful
development of IS professionals. Topics appropriate for this minitrack
include, but are not limited to, the following:

   - Tool selection: strategies for tool selection for concept
   reinforcement and development
   - Professional development and re-tooling strategies for IS educators
   - Strategies for enhancing students’ ability to analyze implications and
   potential consequences of planned systems
   - Beyond the classroom: strategies for student career planning and
   - IT/Data for Good: papers addressing the use of service projects in
   program curriculum
   - Curriculum development for Generation Z
   - Content development strategies for current trends: analytics, big
   data, mobile, cloud, IoT, AR/VR, machine learning, AI, etc.
   - Innovative curriculum strategies
   - Innovative modes of delivery
   - Internship and work study strategies
   - Creative corporate partnership strategies
   - Supporting life-long learning through innovative program models
   - Integrating delivery models in innovative ways
