I am very happy for the warm receipt of our brand new International Journal
of Teaching and Case Studies (http://www.inderscience.com/ijtcs)
IJTCS aims at becoming an authoritative source in teaching and learning
within computing and information technology in a broad sense, which is of
interest to educators, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners alike.
The unique value proposition of IJTCS is the linkage of computing and
information technology to management and business. Towards this aim, IJTCS
delivers 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.
IJTCS covers the disciplines of management, computer engineering, computer
science, information systems, information technology and software
engineering. It also considers any interdisciplinary account of information
technology from a management perspective, such as, for example, medical
informatics education or teaching technological issues for library science.
Papers related to curricula, knowledge bodies, certification and
professional issues in management and computing are also welcomed, as they
reflect an additional stage of the education process as part of life-long
IJTCS aims at publishing high quality research papers, reflective studies,
case studies and “lessons learned” notes on any aspect of teaching and
learning in computing and information technology-related disciplines.
The ACM/AIS/IEEE-CS Joint Task Force on Computing Curricula has recognised
the wide variety of disciplines related to computing in its 2005 Overview
Volume (Draft dated September 30, 2005). The different programs represent a
number of computing disciplines. In this journal, we focus on five that are
prominent today: computer engineering, computer science, information
systems, information technology, and software engineering. Each of these
areas is a focus of interest for IJCTS, and such diversity is reflected in
the structure of Associate Editors specialising in different areas.
Papers may present work of different kinds, from classroom-based empirical
studies through comparisons of pedagogic approaches across institutions or
countries and of different types from the practical to the theoretical.
Case studies that provide insight on proven strategies or teaching patterns
are also welcomed. In addition, papers related to curriculum, knowledge
bodies, certification and professional issues in computing are also
welcomed, as they reflect an additional stage of the education process as
part of life-long learning.
This general statement outlines the ultimate objective but towards this
direction a number of other goals and objectives may be stressed:
Advancing a clear demarcation of the different disciplines that can be
named as “computing and information technology”, building on relevant
recommendations and proposed curricula Serving as a catalogue for educators
at all levels who are seeking learning resources, methods or past
experiences. Advancing legal and certification issues as related to life-
long learning and training in any aspect of computing Discussing the
composition and structure of the different “bodies of knowledge” that
conform to the computing and information technology disciplines
WE ARE DEPLOYING A SPECIAL ISSUES PUBLICATION STRATEGY AIMING TO DEVELOP
HIGH QUALITY THEMATIC EDITIONS.
