    Commencing editing the Journal of Information Systems.

    The 1st of January marks the commencement of our three-year term as the Senior Editors of the Journal of Information Systems. We have been working since June, however, putting together the many administrative and design features that go into making the journal a success. Most importantly, we have worked to build a great team of editors and members of the editorial board. Details of the eight editors and the editorial board are at

    There are many other aspects of the administration of JIS that we have worked on but have much yet to do. This includes outreach, branding, environmental scanning and improving rankings for JIS. As we work more on these issues, expect to see more from this blog as well as our Twitter feed (@jiseditors), LinkedIn and Facebook.

    Which Way Higher Education?
    blog entry last edited December 25, 2012 by Richard E Lillie, tagged research in Teaching with Technology > TwT public

    This weekend, I participated in the AAA Council meeting held at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel in Anaheim, California.  The meeting opened with a talk by Lloyd Armstrong titled Which Way Higher Education?  In preparation for Armstrong's presentation, we were asked to read the article College is Dead.  Long Live College!

    Armstrong explored the traditional college/university business model and described "big forces" causing the business model to change.  Below is a concept diagram summarizing key points from Armstrong's talk.  It was interesting to hear his comments about the growth and impact of online learning for all aspects of university-level education.  Armstrong briefly described recent events such as a consortium of universities agreeing to offer courses online that could be taken for credit by students at other universities.

    Times are rapidly changing.  Armstrong's question to us was whether accounting (and university) education will be prepared for the change.

    12 Tech Innovators -- Who are Transforming Campuses6
    blog entry posted July 26, 2012 by Richard E Lillie, tagged research, teaching, technology, technology tools in Teaching with Technology > TwT public

    The Chronicle of Higher Education has published its first e-book titled Rebooting the Academy:  12 Tech Innovators Who Are Transforming Campuses.  The book is available through in Kindle format.

    Bob Jensen commented about the book in an AECM posting this morning.  Rather than purchasing the e-book at this point, I decided to learn something about the work of each innovator.  I discovered that the name of each innovator on the Chronicle web page is an active hyperlink to a support web page describing the innovator and his(her) work.

    Click the image below to access the "Technology" page (Thursday, July 26, 2012) in the Chronicle of Higher Education.  Click the name of an innovator to find out about the person's work.  Also, peruse the feedback comments at the bottom of the Chronicle web page.  The comments are quite good.

    If an innovator's stories tweaks your interest, you may want to search deeper for articles about the innovator's work. Alternatively, you may decide it's time to purchase the Kindle e-book.

    Podcast: The Google Generation -- Myth or Reality?1
    blog entry last edited September 17, 2010 by Richard E Lillie, tagged research in Teaching with Technology > TwT public

    JISC is an advisory committee to higher education in the UK.  Periodically, JISC issues research reports about higher education.  Click the icon below to access one of JISC's latest reports dealing with "The Google Generation."

    We have all heard about "Millennial" students and how tech savvy they are supposed to be.  From my experience, I am not at all certain that what we hear is true.  I find that Millennial (Google Generation) students have the fastest thumbs in the west and can answer a cell phone call at the speed of light.  Beyond this, their technology related skills, from an academic perspective, seem quite limited.

    This JISC podcast talks about characteristics of Millennial (Google Generation) students.  It runs about 22 minutes.  Click the icon below to access the JISC website.  Click the start button (>) to listen to the podcast.

    Has complexity in accounting and financial reporting gotten better or worse, since the issuance 3 years ago (8/1/08) of the report and recommendations of the SEC Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting (aka CIFIR or the Pozen Committee, for its chairman, Bob Pozen)? How does this impact teaching and students' (and potential PhD candidates) career choices?
