Metaphors have a tremendous power to guide our actions. In Information Systems Development (ISD) certain metaphors like Software Engineering has guided our thinking concerning how we practice ISD and also how we teach ISD. The argument of this paper is that if we, as ISD teachers, expand our metaphors of ISD we will be able to think more creatively about how we can teach ISD.
