About

The digitalization of society is rapidly transforming not only the way
we relate to and use technology, but also the manner in which we
organize,  manage, lead, interact, live et cetera. In order to
comprehend the often-times dramatic changes, research offers a long and
fruitful tradition of inquiry. In this course, we will provide you as
students and participants with the opportunity to trace the underlying
foundations in terms of theories that have impacted and impact
digitalization. Our researchers will share their individual research
foundations, the theories and underlying insights that they use in their
everyday study of the digitalization of society. The idea is to provide
you as a student and participant in the course with the opportunity to
see further and deeper, to be more nuanced when you approach the issue
of the digitalization of society. What are the theoretical foundations
of RPA or AI for instance? Of digital transformation and agile? Of
recommender systems and blockchain? This is what the course offers, and
we hope that it will allow you to further your understanding of the
digitalization of society.
