The course examines the most influential and innovative theoretical approaches and theories in the Information Systems (IS) discipline. Based on exemplary published works for each selected theory, students will examine theory’s particular focus, background and ontological assumptions, as well as its epistemological implications and contribution to knowledge. Such an examination will enable an insight into theories’ application, contribution and implications. By engaging in theoretical discourse and critically assessing selected theories students will gain deeper understanding of major theoretical developments in the IS discipline and their relevance and implications for practice. The seminar character of the course assumes active participation and contribution by the students.
