Summary
This was a scoping study in information and communication technology (ICT) higher education. The core focus was the university curriculum and its perceived relevance among ICT stakeholders including high schools, university staff, students, employers, the community, professional bodies, graduates in the workforce and government. ICT also permeates all other disciplines, society, work practices and industry at all levels, and this broad range of stakeholders and rapidly changing circumstances require dynamic and responsive high school and university curriculums balancing a range of demands. The project reports on responses from a broad range of academic staff, including deans and other senior managers, professional groups, and attendees at a variety of conferences across the ICT spectrum. Recent graduates in the workforce were contacted through university alumni organisations, which invited their relevant graduates to participate in an online survey. Employer requirements of ICT graduates were determined from the literature and a pilot survey of a range of ICT employers
