The Information Technology and Systems course

This course focuses on a number of interrelated ‘big questions’. It aims to provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge and experience in relation to these questions:

1. How are real world information problems analysed and solved?
2. What are the components of an information system, and what are their inter-relationships?
3. What are the social issues associated with information technology and systems?

On completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how real world information problems are analysed and solved
  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of information technology, the components of an information system, and the inter-relationships of these components
  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of social issues associated with information systems
  • design and develop an information system
  • use and evaluate an information system
  • work collaboratively
  • plan, organise, and complete activities.

The course has a design time of 150 hours.
It contributes 15 points towards the TCE, and is a Pre-Tertiary (TQA Level 3) course.
