Abstract: The recent DPMA 1990 curriculum guidelines emphasize the integration of theory and practice in information systems. The guidelines are a systematic approach to covering the knowledge clusters and to preparing students to be practitioners who can develop real systems. Traditional I.S. curricula, however, tend to offer theoretical self-contained courses. The information systems Instructional Model proposed here integrates courses and bridges the gap between theory and practice. Our model supports the DPMA 1990 and is based on an underlying methodology called the Cleanroom Systems Development Process (CSDP). This innovative approach to systems development is discussed, and the progress in implementing the model is described.
