Invitation to join online workshop: “Lifelong learning in the age of digital transformation”

TIM-TUHH invites all interested persons to an online workshop on Friday 15 Oct. 2021 (11:00 – 12:30 hours CEST) on the theme of “Lifelong learning in the age of digital transformation: Chances and challenges for institutions of higher education”. The workshop is a part of the Erasmus Days 2021. A direct registration link is here.

This online session which will be moderated by Dr. Rajnish Tiwari from Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is concerned with the disruptive opportunities and challenges that digital transformation brings to higher education institutions. Based on insights generated in the VISION project, funded by the European Union, we will share our results and discuss with the invited speakers and participants the following issues:

  1. How can institutions of higher education turn disruptive challenges into promising opportunities?
  2. How can the requisite competencies for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship (CIE) be imparted to those that need it the most efficiently and effectively?
  3. How can we use the approach of frugal innovation (“affordable green excellence”) to enable lifelong learning and mitigate the global societal challenges by ensuring social inclusion?

In addition to the presentation of project results by Dr. Rajnish Tiwari, the workshop will be enriched by sharing of insights and experiences by the following three invited speakers representing different contexts:

Dr. Aravind Chinchure: Aravind Chinchure is a renowned innovation and strategy leader from India with experience spanning 25 years in R&D, innovation, business growth, entrepreneurship, start-up investments, M&A, intellectual property, consulting and education.

Aravind Chinchure

He is founder and CEO of QLEAP Academy which has been established in partnership with Indian and global universities to create 21st-century professionals and leaders. The Academy offers various executive courses to build skills, competencies, and leadership in the areas of creativity, innovation, industry 4.0, entrepreneurship & intrapreneurship by outcome driven experiential learning. Aravind is also a part of the VISION project community, where he has acted as a “key influencer”.

According to Aravind, “Changes caused by digital transformation and Industry 4.0 are radically faster than anything experienced yet. I will share my insights on how to convert this challenge into an opportunity for higher educational institutions in creating new-age talent empowered with 21st-century skills.

Prof. Dr. Hendrik Müller: Hendrik Müller is Professor of Business Ethics at the University of Applied Sciences Hochschule Fresenius (HSF).

Hendrik Müller

For the department onlineplus he serves as Vice Dean for Studies and Teaching and Academic Director of the Examination and Seminar Centre Hamburg. After his studies in Oxford and a doctorate in Classical Philology and History, he gained extensive professional experience in both academia and business in Germany and the UK.

The department onlineplus at HSF has recently launched an innovative teaching format, called the “mixed mode”, which Hendrik will introduce to the audience. This format puts the learner at the centre by allowing students to engage in individual and flexible alifelong learning, depending on their learning preferences, time commitments or life situation. The study programme thus adapts to the student’s life and not vice versa.

Luise M. Degen: Luise Degen is a doctoral candidate and research associate at the Institute for Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).

Luise M. Degen

She is also part of the development team for the TIM Master’s programme GTIME (https://www.g-time.org). At the institute, Luise supports lectures/seminars and helps to introduce new learning approaches into these courses. For her Master’s thesis, she developed a conceptual approach for a Berlin-based creative consultancy to integrate blended learning concepts into their offers. Thus, she experienced both the educational view and the practical view on new learning approaches. She will thus share perspectives that include views from students, teaching assistants and edtech companies.

In this session at UNIVERSITY: FUTURE FESTIVAL 2020 (“Learning, Systems and the New Normal”), we will present findings of our ongoing study on the changes that the education sector is undergoing, including their “why” and “how” aspects.

The session will begin with the presentation of the results of expert interviews by Dr. Rajnish Tiwari. The interviews have been conducted under the VISION project that has been funded by the European Commission. In an interactive setting, participants will emulate a focus group discussion and deliberate upon the results and formulate implications.

Call for Papers on Frugal Innovation at EURAM 2021

Center for Frugal Innovation (CFI) at Hamburg University of Technology is happy to announce a call for papers for a conference track at EURAM 2021 in Montreal (Canada). The track will be co-hosted by CFI together with several other international partners. The conference will take place from June 16 to June 18, 2021.

T01_06 – Reshaping capitalism around Sustainability, Social innovation, and Frugality

Building an inclusive and sustainable society is currently a great challenge for enterprises, organizations, and government, especially when the societal issues such as climate change, poverty, and inequality are becoming increasingly urgent. In addition, business strategies and governmental policies must accommodate recent economic changes brought by the COVID 19. In this context, social innovation and frugality (including circular economy) represent a new promising paradigm for business and society. We encourage submissions of both empirical and theoretical papers that explore how sustainability, social innovation, and frugality contribute to reshaping capitalism, thereby moving business forward for society.

The track aims to open debates and discussion around novel conceptualization and templates, new corporation experiments, new corporate governance practices, and approaches of strategy that combine sustainability, social innovation, and frugality. It also addresses new implications for companies and for associated stakeholders, as well as recommendations for policy makers.

Proponents of the track are Linh-Chi Vo, ESDES, Lyon Business School; Christian Le Bas, ESDES, Lyon Business School; Massimiliano Mazzanti, University of Ferrara; Fernando Lopez, Stellenbosch University; Rajnish Tiwari, Hamburg University of Technology; Lucia Dal Negro, De-LAB Benefit Corporation.
