Description

The Covid-19 crisis has disrupted life and commerce, with loss of life, health, jobs, and opportunity. College campuses are closed. Business, government and non-profit organizations have shifted to virtual work. We are also witnessing the miracle of digital technologies that allow us to “stay at home” yet conduct our professional obligations and maintain social connections, and more broadly allow many businesses to continue to operate. Collectively these point to interesting new research opportunities for IS faculty and career opportunities for our students. Leveraging content from an AIS online forum, this panel is part of a three-panel series at ICIS 2020 that is focused on the impacts and implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. This panel of senior executives will discuss the impacts and implications for IS-related practice, the consequent implications for future graduates, and the research needed to provide insights for the “new era.”
