Abstract This paper argues that students in Information Systems (Systems Analysts) have learned methods, methodologies and techniques, but have less experience in self-reflection and self-awareness. Systems Analysts are central in developing Information Systems and need to communicate and understand people with many different backgrounds and perspectives concerning use of Information systems. The paper suggests a curriculum that may give the students a learning environment that opens up possibilities for self-reflection and self-awareness. These virtues can only be obtained as a by-product of something else and is best learned via learning in action. Hopefully they will improve the Systems Analyst's capabilities to construct good and useful Information Systems.
