Abstract

Creating a link between research and teaching activities in higher education is a common and recurring challenge for many academics. Especially in practice-driven areas like Information Systems (IS), educators as well as students can benefit substantially from well-designed course curricula that facilitate research-driven learning processes. With this paper, we build on a review of extant literature to propose a research-driven course design in the case of a graduate IS course. The suggested approach includes a set of different techniques that allow for a successful integration of research- based content and activities throughout the whole course lifecycle. In order to validate our design empirically, we conduct a survey among course participants and present the results. Our findings provide initial support for the proposed design, which can be basis for future research and guide the composition of research-driven courses in the IS field.
