Curriculum renewal in postgraduate information technology education: a response to growing service sector dominance

Professor Joseph Davis
The University of Sydney
2011
The University of Sydney

Themes central to the study of services were identified as: service system fundamentals, service systems management, service systems engineering, service technologies, business process modelling, knowledge management systems, customer relationship management, and modern organisations. Detailed course descriptions and some teaching materials for each of these themes were developed.

Also implemented was a Service Learning and Teaching Foundry, which provides a virtual space for students to learn important service-oriented approach/business process modelling (SOA/BPM) concepts, gain hands-on experience with service-oriented software engineering, and practise their skills using real world examples.

Stage one of the project explored the current scope of national and international ePortfolio practice in higher education in Australia. An analysis of  ePortfolio contexts identified government policy, technical standards, academic policy and learning and teaching as contexts where strategies may be employed to support effective practice. The types of ePortfolios used was documented and issues in relation to implementation identified. Additionally, innovative practice in ePortfolio use in higher education was explored and recommendations made to guide policy developments.

Final Report Download Document (1.17 MB)

This is an outstanding, comprehensive analysis of the state of tertiary ICT education in Australia, including the need for some change and how this should be approached. The report includes extensive survey data from the perspectives of academic staff, recent graduates and (to a lesser extent) employers of ICT graduates. It is noteworthy that these surveys have been conducted across a very representative component of the Australian sector, giving confidence about the broad relevance of the findings.

The report is a "must read" for anyone undertaking a serious review of their ICT curriculum or teaching, and indeed is worth the attention of anyone seeking a good example of such a review, irrespective of discipline. It is particularly illuminating to observe the alignment, of lack thereof, between what is taught at University and what students require in the workforce. Of course, there is an ongoing debate about how tightly Universities should aim for work-ready graduates, but the data in this report from recent ICT graduates are relevant to all tertiary programs in this area.

The report is lengthy, with a wealth of (quantitative and qualitative) data and substantial data analysis. There are nine recommendations, of which three focus on the ICT sector and its perceptions by stakeholders, and six address aspects of the curriculum and teaching; these latter recommendations are most relevant for discipline standards. The report is beautifully written and well-organised, and argues its case convincingly. The reader will benefit from either a short reading or a comprehensive analysis.

This report documents Stage Two of the Australian ePortfolio Project (AeP2), which explored the current scope of national and international ePortfolio communities of practice in order to identify the factors that have contributed to their success and sustainability. A toolkit of six concept guides, targeted at the various stakeholders involved in ePortfolio use and providing information on managing privacy, is provided in Appendix 1.  The project website provides additional resources.

This project aims to facilitate the construction of effective electronic learning systems by investigating the domain-specific language used in their development by university lecturers, instructional designers, educationalists and IT specialists. Project outcomes include: an interactive glossary outlining the shared language and the language conflicts of the stakeholder groups; a pedagogical design framework, which specifies the communication processes between the design, implementation and user partners; an annotated bibliography; and a project website.
