ISCRAM, the international academic-practitioner group focused on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management is conducting a survey that may be of interest to many people. The survey is looking for input on a Master's level degree in EM with a concentration in information systems.
I like ISCRAM's approach because it is not just about a particular type of technology such as GIS. Information systems for EM is sorely underrepresented in higher education and something I believe should be in included in every degree program. This topic is also near and dear to my heart as I have not only written about information and technology in EM, but is also the subject of my research and future work.
You need not be an expert in information systems, information, or technology to respond to this survey. In fact a non-technical EM expert may provide some great feedback!Read More
