    Abstract

    This paper explores the nature of Information Management (IM) pedagogic practice within UK higher education (HE), by exploring the history of IM and teasing out what this may mean for its teaching. Empirical evidence is considered from both qualitative and quantitative data analysis perspectives through the application of Grounded theory. A web-based survey of 308 UK Information Systems/Management academics was undertaken. The sampling strategy for this phase was convenience sampling using a closed population, i.e. only members of the United Kingdom Academy for Information Systems (UKAIS) and yielded a 30% response rate. This was followed by 12 semi-structured interviews within two universities, giving a strong comparison between organisational contexts, staff expectations and practices.
