This document provides a set of teaching resources, including questions, discussion points and instructor notes for incorporating Jesuit perspectives and values in the classroom.  These resources are intended to be used as supplementary materials for Information Systems/Analytics courses. The resources are instructor-focused and meant for the instructor and not the students.

This compilation is generated from the recognition that information management is essential within the global economy that organizations are currently facing, and Analytics and Business Intelligence play a primary role.  Analytics and Business Intelligence facilitate new ways to compete and generate value by processing large amounts of data generated by consumers, businesses, and industrial sectors.  Organizations can use information management to respond to the demands of innovation, productivity, and growth, to obtain benefits in a global economy and to serve society.

Learning Outcomes: 

1. Recognize the social justice issues related to IT and data analytics: digital divide, data and algorithm biases, and income inequality.

2. Understand the technology ethical issues (loss of privacy, rumors & misinformation; data ownership and data access)

3. Understand the role IT and IS play for societal good (ability to inform public about health, finance, services, crisis management, environmental sustainability, etc.)
