The course "Information Systems in Organizations" (SIO) wants to position itself at the intersection of organization and informatics, and presents the role of information systems in organizations. Everything starts from the detailed introduction of the concept of information system, and its application to support the operations of human organizations.

This introduction allows us to connect to the module on uses of information systems in organizations, which analyzes the uses that organizations are doing of the various categories and sub-systems of computer-based information systems, those that have appeared over recent decades and until today. Thus, we present the categories of transactional, decisional and communicational information systems, and for each category the main subtypes of information systems are treated, connecting them with the information technologies most relevant for each case.

Once the types of systems and applications have been addressed, we go on with the strategic and functional management of the information systems function, in the broader context of the organization that includes it and which is the object of its usefulness. With regard to the strategic management of information systems, we present how information systems can play a strategic role for organizations, including enterprise integration, and alternatives for their methological strategic planning in the context of IS governance and audit.

Regarding the functional management of the IS function, we should know the historical development and current situation regarding the roles and function of the internal organization of the area, in a context defined by international quality and organization schemes for computing and IS.

The course ends with a final wrap-up and projection of the themes studied, from the synthesis of a conceptual map of the IS in organizations, and knowledge of prospective studies relevant to the issues covered in SIO, which facilitates their projection towards the rest of the IS Itinerary, and beyond.

Teaching methodology

SIO's learning methodology will consist in the active assistance of students to all or most of the classes, which are of three types of sessions (theory, problems and laboratory). To make maximum use of these sessions, and closely synchronized with these, students will be working on various teaching materials for the course (chapters of the base reference book, articles, reports, blogs and other materials selected, etc..).

The teacher will propose and introduce, along the various course modules, the selective reading of the materials (distributed by themes, assigned to student teams), through the publication of a Didactic Guide at the beginning of each module. In order to ensure maximum utilization and completion of the course, students should follow the study guidelines and recommendations concerning the contents of the subject published in the didactic guide for each module as a guiding principle of work. Both the didactic guides and most materials are available to students through Atenea, in the space designated for SIO.

Active monitoring of the SIO Atenea space is of paramount interest of the students, since, besides the reminders made at the classroom, this will be the virtual home that the teacher uses to guide students, and to outline the various activities of research and evaluation. Additionally, this area of ​​Atenea will become the access point and common reference which, in addition to the face-to-face sessions, will be used for written doubts and questions, and where answers and proposals will be discussed, at least the most common ones.

This course has a clear conceptual theoretical nature, but the teacher will put a special emphasis on linking and promoting a vision of professional practice-oriented topics, through materials and activities proposed for the subject, that will be selected and presented for students to think and analyze professional experiences (their own and that of others, through cases) in the topics within the scope of the course.

Given the nature of the subject - and the fact that this is a first pilot and experimental edition- we have considered as appropriate to establish a model of continuous assessment (CA) as the only way to overcome the course. The syllabus is structured in four central Modules, preceded and closed by two finishing modules for introduction and summary, respectively.

The complete schedule of the subject will be found fully detailed at the FIB Racó and at Atenea, in the space set for SIO. The dynamic functioning of the modules will be uniform throughout the course.

Evaluation methodology

The final grade (NFA) of SIO will be obtained by weighting the mark AC (NAC), the grade of Discussions and Presentations (NDP) and grade for the Practical Case (NCP) by the following formula:

NFA = 0.3 NAC + 0.2 NDP + 0.3 NCP + 0.2 NCT

The calculation of the final grade is achieved by combining the individual assessment of the activities of AC (30%), the grade from involvement in discussions and presentations (20%), the grade from the resolution of the transversal practical case (30%), and the grade for transversal competences (20%).

This means that SIO can only be passed through the ongoing participation, proactive and visible throughout the course. Students must meet the mandatory group and individual activities proposed by the teacher to pass the course.

This AC is composed of five evaluative activities of AC, each of which is directly linked to one of the central thematic modules of the course. The correlation between the modules and assessment activities of AC and proposed publication dates of delivery will be detailed at the FIB Racó and the Atenea space for SIO.

Particularly valued will be the participation in debates in the classroom, either orally at the face-to-face sessions or by writing in the space of Atenea, as the visible participation in work related to the transversal case.

The assessment of transversal competencies, or generic skills, and their integration into the NFA, established in accordance with criteria established by the FIB to this issue in relation to the MEI, and the final allocation of competencies to SIO.

To qualify for honors, students must have demonstrated a high level of excellence in their work throughout the learning process, including discussions, presentations and transversal resolution of the case study. This means you must have the highest mark in all grades awarded. Once this premise is satisfied, or in very close situations, the decision and responsibility to grant or not the statement of MH (honors) will be the sole responsibility of the teacher, according to all the merits demonstrated by the student throughout the study period of SIO.
