- Technology adoption and use
- Group assignment to analyse the adoption and/or use of a particular emerging technology in a specific setting with a specific lens
After the course, the student understands the effects of emerging technology (e.g. information systems) on individuals, organisations and societies.
1) Students can critically assess and identify characteristics of a particular technology (e.g. virtual reality) and 2) study its adoption and use in a particular setting (e.g. in manufacturing industry), 3) with a particular lens (e.g. with a management theory to explain the influencing factors to its use).
They can critically assess how the emerging technology can facilitate change in behavior and processes. Students can apply their knowledge of emerging information systems phenomena to overcome a specific open-ended problem.
Attending 50 % of the lectures, successfully completing 1) three lecture diary reports (individual assignment) and 2) the course exercise (group assignment).
