In this chapter we report on an ongoing project to improve the ways we teach about IT in an undergraduate degree. Using a relational perspective on learning, we have developed a framework of factors to encourage students to adopt a deep approach to learning about IT. We describe the design, implementation, evaluation and refinement of learning contexts and learning activities based on the framework. Results are encouraging and show a significant positive effect when compared with a previous study by other researchers involving a different teaching and learning context.
