Amy Connolly

Amy Connolly

CIS professor Amy Connolly was recently awarded Best Paper for 2020 by the Journal of Information Systems Education. Recognized for its contribution to IS pedagogy theory, contribution to practice in the IS classroom, uniqueness and originality of ideas and quality of writing, the co-authored work is titled “An Agile Framework for Teaching with Scrum in the IT Project Management Classroom.”

The paper presents a framework for teaching a complete, semester-long IT project management course in Scrum without losing any of the traditional PMI-based content. This group-based, iterative and hands-on approach equips students to better internalize and understand the complex social interactions involved with a self-organizing team, concepts that are difficult to learn without first-hand experience.

The paper is available on the JISE website
