This workshop will provide activities that can be implemented into the MIS curriculum to prepare students for the computer networking architectures found in many of today's organizations. A curriculum model based on Bloom's Taxonomy consisting of objectives, prerequisite skills, and resource allocation will be the foundation for the variety of activities designed to prepare MIS students for general networking knowledge, internships, or employment in the computer networking field. This model presents activities that range from identification to analysis and evaluation. The activity media include written and hands-on exercises and a Request For Proposal (RFP) project. Copies of these activities will be available to workshop participants. Discussion will include student s' knowledge and skill sets being developed, upgrading of activities, alternate directions that could be taken, etc.
