    Abstract

    We argue that information systems educators — and others in similarly dynamic professional disciplines — could benefit from an alternative infrastructure for learning. We present an “open classroom” model of education which expands upon Ferris' (2002) collaborative partnership model of education by integrating “open” technologies such as Wild and Open Source Software to create enduring “knowledge products” that more completely engage the students and provide value to society. We further view this concept through the lens of a social-technical system to demonstrate how such a system represents significant, third order change to traditional classroom environments. We illustrate our model with two successful cases from our personal teaching experiences. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.
