An Information Technology Model Curriculum Designed for Preparing Knowledge Workers and End-User Support Personnel
This paper presents a model curriculum for students studying organizational and end-user information systems (OEIS). Developed by the Organizational Systems Research Association (OSRA), the curriculum contains seven required and six elective courses which sit on a foundation of general education and core business courses. Core courses include an introduction to OEIS; computer user support; planning, design, implementation, and evaluation; technical training and delivery methods; telecommunications and networking; cases in information technology; and an internship. The elective courses comprise eBusiness and web technologies, collaborative technologies and knowledge management, network administration, operating systems, information systems security, and special topics. College and university faculty members in a variety of disciplines are invited to consider this model when revising or expanding their information systems curricula.
