About the Course

Digitalization is a signature of our time. It offers almost unlimited opportunities for firms, public authorities and citizens. Digital leadership relies on capability to navigate the competing concerns of digitalization, but also to actively orchestrate digital innovation processes. This course on Digital infrastructures will develop the students understanding of how digitalization is built upon layers of sociotechnical infrastructure that simultaneously enable and restrict possibilities for digital innovation, leading to both expected and unexpected consequences.  The course has a strong theoretical foundation anchored in several domains, including but not limited to information systems, anthropology and design, combined with a distinct design perspective based on design thinking and participatory design. This focus ensures that students develop skills in analysing and developing future digital infrastructures for digital innovation.
