In this issue, we present six manuscripts--a teaching tip, two teaching cases, and three research papers. The teaching tip covers a classroom game used to introduce the Scrum framework for systems development. The first teaching case describes a set of Excel exercises centered on a student-managed cafe in need of analysis and strategic decisionmaking. The second teaching case introduces NoSQL into the curriculum through a multi-part project. In the first of the three research papers, the authors compare two intervention models for attracting diverse students to technology careers through the lens of Return on Investment (ROI). The next paper examines students' perceived accomplishment, perceived enjoyment, and satisfaction in technology-enabled, blended learning courses and makes comparisons based on gender. The final paper investigates the curricular changes over the last five years as related to big data and analytics courses as well as the impact of previous offerings and departmental resources on current curricula. Enjoy!
