IFB101 Impact of IT

This unit investigates the transformational relationship between information technology (IT) and individuals, society and organisations.  It focuses on determining and evaluating the impact IT can have from a range of perspectives. By examining contemporary technological advances, students will gain a perspective on their application in social and organisational settings, how they are used to advance social and organisational goals and how IT professionals enable these technologies.   Case studies across a variety of domains will link theory with practice, and build your understanding of the depth and breadth of change, both positive and negative, that is driven by information technology.  This unit will help inform your future career path and unit selection over the course of your degree.
