Abstract: The Association for Information Systems (AIS) Teaching Curation Project aims to highlight and summarize research within the association that focuses on the major courses taught in Information Systems (IS) programs. The present literature review is a companion to a curation website specific to the introductory course in IS. In this review, we identify three major themes that pervade this literature: IS program enrollment, pedagogy, and curriculum. We use these themes to structure our summary of the research on the importance of the introductory course and various approaches to instruction. These themes also provide a framework for positioning future research. For instructors of the introductory course, this review and the companion website hosted by the AIS serve as a reference for recommendations and inspiration.

Keywords: Introductory course, Pedagogy, IS curriculum, Enrollment
