Request for Expressions of Interest: MIM Program (Information Systems & Technology)
Request for “EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST”
Delivery of the “Information Systems and Technologies” Course for Dalhousie’s MIM Program - Fall 2018
The Dalhousie University Master of Information Management degree program is delivered in a blended on-line/distance delivery and face-to-face format. Designed to meet the unique needs of working professionals, this program is unique in Canada.
The program requires delivery/teaching of the “Information Systems and Technology” course, which will include approximately 12 weeks of distance education and a 2-day classroom component in Halifax, NS and/or Ottawa, ON. Due to the nature of this course, the course would require updates and revisions to ensure currency. To this end, this call for expressions of interest is being circulated with the aim of securing the participation of an appropriate academic.
This is an online course, for mid-career professionals, delivered through the Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS). This course makes clear the relationship between IT and IM, often misconstrued in organizations. The course includes theories of databases and integrated systems design, allied with practical applications of a wide range of information technologies to support organizational goals. These include traditional intranet and extranet applications along with emerging technologies. Concepts of information architecture (IA) are introduced relating to the design of shared information environments that are often web-based, including intranets, databases and online communities. The practices of IA are examined through analyses of real organizations and how the information environment can best serve their mission, goals, processes, clients, suppliers and other stakeholders.
- Understand the role of IS&T in supporting organizations’ plans for effective information management.
- Learn about emerging technology and reflect on its implications for organizations and for information management.
- Acquire an understanding of issues concerning the adoption of IS&Ts within an organization for internal or external use.
- Identify and share potential benefits and disadvantages to various uses of information systems.
