The problem that this study dealt with was to determine the student-centered, cooperative, project-oriented activities that might be employed in the 21st century business classroom. This study used a Delphi instrument to determine the general needs for the preparation of business and information systems educators for the 21st century. Twenty-three experts nominated by the National Association for Business Teacher Education (NABTE) contributed to the data. The study consisted of three rounds of a Delphi instrument transmitted over the Internet telecommunications network. An instrument was developed from the responses generated by the first round, the second round involved rating the statements, and the third round was used to determine consensus on items.
