|Workshop on “Digital Technologies in Education and Management”|
Organized jointly by National Polytechnic University of Armenia (Yerevan, Armenia) and State University of Management (Moscow, Russia)
The main goal of the Workshop is to become a valuable and important platform for inspiring international and interdisciplinary exchange at the forefront of digital technologies mostly dedicated to education and management. We expect to bring together academicians, educators, engineers, managers and policy-makers from all over the world and hope that leading specialists of the field will take this opportunity to join us for academic exchange.
Digitalisation deals with exploring and understanding Digital Technology as a set of hardware, software and methodological tools that determines both the strategic and operational capabilities in designing and developing products for corporate productivity, profitability, competitiveness and, certainly, maximum customer satisfaction. This requires scientifically based and methodologically developed harmonization of technologies and business strategies.
Another crucial factor is the modern innovative education based on the thoughtful organization and management of educational processes for which, in its turn, correct use of advanced Digital Technology can provide high quality of education.
No less important is the topic of cyber security and data protection. Digital companies benefit from increasing attractiveness through digital services and improved user experience. The increase in digital systems and the associated information volumes make data protection and cyber security as a whole all the more important. Every company that becomes digital has to deal with this.
The scope of the Workshop covers both theoretical and practical areas of Digital Technologies focused on Education and Management. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: Digital Technology Governance, Financial Management in Digital Technology, Digital Technology Service Management, Personnel Management in Digital Technology, Digital Technology Configuration Management, Business and Digital Technology Alignment, Education for Digital Technology Managers, Innovative Education Based on Digital Technology, Evaluation of Active Teaching and Learning Technologies, Cyber Security Management, Organization of Data Protection.
