Summary
The project aims to identify key knowledge and skill sets needed for the emerging IT-enabled services sector. Using this information, the team will develop the overall educational framework, initial curriculum modules and other learning materials (including a software foundry) and will pre-test these within the consortium institutions. Modules will then be benchmarked with other tertiary providers of similar courses internationally. An on-line portal will be developed to assist in disseminating the resulting curriculum modules and educational materials among universities throughout Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The proposed outcomes of the project are: ? A process for developing market relevant curriculum modules and educational materials; ? A comprehensive set of multi-disciplinary modules for service related IT education; ? An interactive online educational portal which incorporates these ? modules and other learning materials, and which promotes dissemination and adaptation by universities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region; and ? An international conference on service-related IT education
