First issue: International Journal of Teaching and Case Studies - a special issue on information systems

The first issue of International Journal of Teaching and Case Studies has just been published.

The journal aims at becoming an authoritative source in teaching and learning within management, computing and information technology in a broad sense, which is of interest to educators, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners alike. The unique view is the linkage of computing and information technology to management and business and the journal will deliver excellent articles on new methods, models and practices of teaching in the era of knowledge society, as well as (teaching) cases aimed at supporting learning in academia and business settings.

This first double issue - with a free download of the papers - is a special issue: Information systems: the new research agenda, the emerging curriculum and the new teaching paradigm.
