The Journal of Information Systems Education (JISE) invites submissions for a Special Issue titled “Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in IS Education” expected to be published in late 2021.
Equality, diversity, and inclusion in higher education are essential if we are to achieve fairness in society and balanced development. This special issue is interested in the intersections between issues such as gender, ethnicity, culture, (dis)ability, socioeconomic status, family lifecycle stage, and age, and how they relate to information systems education or the use of technology in education.
Submitted articles may be full research papers, systematic literature reviews, teaching cases, or practical teaching tips. Discursive opinion pieces are also welcome, with preference given to multi-authored contributions that include assenting and dissenting views. It is hoped that the selected papers will represent a broad and varied mix with several regions of the world represented.
For this special issue of JISE, we invite the submission of high-quality, innovative, and insightful articles. Topics of interest for this special issue include but are not limited to:
