Summary Teaching Information Systems (IS) to Australian tertiary students has become increasing problematic with many of them relying on a surface level approach to study. This will surely affect their understanding of IS material and in turn affect their effectiveness in the workplace.

This paper examines the issues behind this trend and considers Problem Based Learning (PBL) asan aid to counteract it.
