Bled, Slovenia

About

Digitalization in education is not about just shifting from pencil to screen, it’s about allowing students to truly enhance their learning and enabling management development institutions to deliver impactful learning experience in a more accessible and personalized way.

CEEMAN has been helping higher education institutions to continuously improve and advance the quality of business education and management development through a number of successful development programs for faculty and staff. We are delighted to announce a new program in our diverse portfolio, which is focusing on digital technologies in management education.

Digital technologies are at the heart of modern education systems, workplaces and learning environments, changing the way we teach and learn. This seminar is intended for decision-makers (deans, associate deans, directors) and academic staff of management universities and business schools who would like to learn more about strategies, practices and tools for embedding digital technologies in teaching and learning.

Program

International faculty and renown experts will provide overview of the “big picture” and trends of digitalization in management education, as well as share their experience on a number of issues crucial for implementing technology strategies in management education programs and environments. The program will also provide space for participants to share their own best practices, success (or failure) stories, and relevant insights to facilitate peer learning and exchange.

The topics will include, among others:

  • Global environment, trends and challenges that technology brings to educators
  • Digital teaching and learning: the double disruption in business education
  • Online and blended learning formats: content, development, and delivery
  • Matching technologies and tools to different teaching objectives and target groups
  • Classroom management, student engagement and assessment
  • Game-based learning
  • School infrastructure issues
  • Latest technology trends and future technologies
  • Implications of technology for responsible management education

Work Methods

Class sessions will include briefings by experts from the education and business world, panel discussions, videoconferences, technology demos, as well as group discussions where participants will be able to share their own experience and discuss new insights and ideas. With the help of our corporate partners, we will take full advantage of the newest technology and learn through practical applications.

In order to fine-tune the seminar to better answer participant needs, a pre-seminar online survey will be available to evaluate where on the digital teaching and learning curve the participants are at their schools, get insights into their personal experience with technology, and identify most relevant topics.
