Information Dynamics: IMT 586

Have you ever wondered ...



  • what causes some ideas, products, and companies to become fads that peak and die, while others have staying power?

  • why there are business cycles?

  • what causes some diseases to become epidemics and others to subside with little effect?

  • why real change often takes so long?

  • the role information plays in the answer to each of these questions?


Would you like to learn to answer these and other such questions
yourself? Are you a student at the University of Washington, or do you live within commuting distance?

Then sign up for the Information School's IMT 586, Information Dynamics I, in the Winter Quarter 2008. I look forward to seeing some of you there.

Some have asked when this course will be taught. It is scheduled for Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. until 8:20 during the winter quarter. The UW Web site gives a bit more information. As soon as there's a course Web site, I plan to post that, too.

If you're interested in taking IMT 586 and are a Day MSIM student in the University of Washington Information School, go to http://www.outreach.washington.edu/evedeg/graduate/msim_day_reg.asp to register. If you are an Executive MSIM student in the UW iSchool, go to http://www.extension.washington.edu/evedeg/graduate/msim_reg.asp to register. Everyone else, including non-MSIM UW students and non-matriculated students, should contact Kathy Wong (katwong@u.washington.edu) directly.

Bill,

May I enquire if UWIS, includes 'innovations in managerial practices', in the curriculum.

Is there a database on papers relating to this subject.

Shall appreciate your guidance. Thank you.

Tony, you'd have to scour the Information School Web site to answer that question. I don't know of such a database.

Thanks for stopping by.
