UNISCON 2009 (United Information Systems Conference) was the third conf- ence in the series that is based on the idea to pool smaller but highly interesting scienti?c events on information systems into one large conference. Here, people from di?erent scienti?c backgrounds can present their research results, share their ideas and discuss future trends in these various areas. UNISCON 2009 was held in Sydney, Australia in the University of Western Sydney, Campbelltown Campus. In 2009 the following scienti?c events were held under the umbrella of UNISCON 2009: th – 8 International Conference on Information Systems Technology and Its Applications (ISTA 2009) th – 8 International Workshop on Conceptual Modelling Approaches for e- Business (eCOMO 2009) – Second Workshop on Model-Based Software and Data Integration (MBSDI 2009) We received 115 papers for the three events. Papers were submitted from over 25 countries. After a rigorous review process, 39 papers were accepted as full papers and 14 papers as short papers for presentation at the conference and published in these proceedings. In addition to the above three events, we also organized a Doctoral Cons- tium to provide a forum for doctoral students to get feedback from experts in the area about their research projects.

Two seismic forces beyond our control – the advent of Web 2.0 and the inexorable influx of tech-savvy Millennials on campus – are shaping what Roger McHaney calls “The New Digital Shoreline” of higher education. Failure to chart its contours, and adapt, poses a major threat to higher education as we know it. These forces demand that we as educators reconsider the learning theories, pedagogies, and practices on which we have depended, and modify our interactions with students and peers—all without sacrificing good teaching, or lowering standards, to improve student outcomes. Achieving these goals requires understanding how the indigenous population of this new shoreline is different. These students aren’t necessarily smarter or technologically superior, but they do have different expectations. Their approaches to learning are shaped by social networking and other forms of convenient, computer-enabled and mobile communication devices; by instant access to an over-abundance of information; by technologies that have conferred the ability to personalize and customize their world to a degree never seen before; and by time-shifting and time-slicing. As well as understanding students’ assumptions and expectations, we have no option but to familiarize ourselves with the characteristics and applications of Web 2.0—essentially a new mind set about how to use Internet technologies around the concepts of social computing, social media, content sharing, filtering, and user experience. Roger McHaney not only deftly analyzes how Web 2.0 is shaping the attitudes and motivations of today’s students, but guides us through the topography of existing and emerging digital media, environments, applications, platforms and devices – not least the impact of e-readers and tablets on the future of the textbook – and the potential they have for disrupting teacher-student relationships; and, if appropriately used, for engaging students in their learning. This book argues for nothing less than a reinvention of higher education to meet these new realities. Just adding technology to our teaching practices will not suffice. McHaney calls for a complete rethinking of our practice of teaching to meet the needs of this emerging world and envisioning ourselves as connected, co-learners with our students.
