Course Description: The Emerging Information Technologies two-semester course sequence presents a variety of topics not fully covered in the other DPS course material. This semester we will focus on dissertation-related data, and how it is obtained, analyzed, and reported. Dr. Cha's presentation slides and related material are on Blackboard.
Textbooks: none this semester
Other recommended but not required books
An individual report: a 6-10 page report that describes the student's proposed dissertation-related data, and how it will be obtained, analyzed, and reported. To receive an A/A- on this report, the report must
A team report: a 4-6 page report that critiques the agile DPS dissertation process, suggests improvements, and possibly gives examples of XP iterations in the dissertation idea paper and/or research work. Recall the Research Seminar 2 "Agile DPS Dissertation Process" presentation. Each team will also prepare a 15 minute Powerpoint presentation summarizing their report, to be presented at our last session if time permits.
Incompletes: in order to be fair to those students who complete the course in a timely manner, our policy is to reduce the grade of those students taking an incomplete by a letter grade for each semester, or portion thereof, that the incomplete is in effect.
