Designed for the introductory MIS course, INFORMATION SYSTEMS FOR BUSINESS provides a learner-centered, experiential approach that helps engage students with in-class activities and productive discussions. The authors have used the learner-centered, experiential approach with great success in large and small classes and at the undergrad and graduate levels. With this approach, they find that students have engaged more deeply with the material and performed better on exams. In-class discussions have become more animated, and class sessions are more enjoyable for both students and instructors. Key features include:
- Concise, focused chapters with integrated Learning Activities throughout.
- Brief and affordable
- Detailed instructors manual featuring guidance on how to use the learner-centered approach.
- Updated content throughout including a thoroughly restructured and updated chapter on Security.
- Ideal for flipped classrooms, online courses, or traditional classrooms when instructors want proven, successful in-class activities to accompany lectures.
- The authors are available to work with instructors to implement this approach. Contact Beth at [email protected] to set up a meeting with the authors.
