The 2018 EdTech seminar, hosted by CEEMAN at Bled during October 15-18, took participants on an inordinate exploration of graduate management education in times of disruption and change.
This exploration was guided by three people who not only acknowledge the disruption happening in traditional academia but they are excited to be disrupters themselves. Our own Dr. Nikos Mylonopoulos, associate professor of Digital , Dr. Eleni Lamprou, online faculty member at Laureate Online Education and reseach fellow at Alba and Marcin Wardaszko, director of the Center for Simulation Games and Gamification at Kozminski University in Poland.
Associate Provost for Digital Learning and Innovation at Boston College and visiting professor at Alba, Dr. Chris Dellarocas, also dropped by via Zoom to talk to about the commodification of education.
Over the fast-paced, three-day seminar, Dr. N. Mylonopoulos and Dr. E. Lamprou, along with Dr. Marcin Wardaszko provided directions on how to fully integrate online courses, shared examples of why gamification in business education is the wave of the future, and predicted what the elements of the digital era MBA will look like.
As the academic director of EdTech seminar, Nikos Mylonopoulos stated that we need to be aware that digitalization is transforming management itself to management 2.0, so it is crucial for educational institutions to offer programs that would serve this new business and management models.
