Pragmatic Due Diligence - in the World of AI
Sanmai Technologies PBC
We live in a world of noise and nuance, of fine print
and signals, and of information asymmetry, especially
now that AI is becoming more widespread. How would we
reduce the odds of barking up the wrong tree? What if seeing
around the corner better was a skill that we could learn
with minds, machines, and information?

Teaching Systems Analysis - Best Practices and a Look Into the Future
University of North Carolina Wilmington
Heikki Topi - Bentley University
Gary Spurrier - Visiting Scholar - Bentley University
Elahe Javadi - Illinois State University
Season Tanner - State Farm
The panel is intended as a conversation about
key topics and learning goals for the Systems Analysis course,
primarily at the undergraduate level. We plan to cover issues,
best practices and solutions to the issues, as well as future directions.
In our experience, there are several aspects of the course that are
really tricky to teach, such as data modeling and the integration
between data and activities that are modeled in use cases and user stories.
We also want to talk about the challenges related to teaching agile versus
traditional methods effectively and take a look at the role of hands-on
exercises as part of the course. Another more general aspect is the question
of breadth versus depth related to the course learning goals. Last, we plan
to touch on the role of artificial intelligence as a topic to be covered in the
course, as well as the implications of AI for IS graduates.
Friday at 10:45 a.m.
Using Competencies to Specify Computing Curricula
Jeffry Babb - West Texas A&M University
Les Waguespack - Bentley University
David Yates - Bentley University
Since the IEEE/ACM Computing Curricula
Report, and the IS 2020 Model Curriculum report for Information Systems
programs, the uptake and proliferation of a competency-based curriculum
specification approach continues. The Computer Science 2023 model
curriculum and impending Data Science model curriculum reports are
continuing with the adoption of a competency approach.
The panel will discuss the advantages and potential challenges
of adopting a competency-based approach related to competency
management and specification.
Friday at 1:50 p.m.
