Digital innovations influence every aspect of our lives in this increasingly technological world. Firms that pursue digital innovations must think carefully about how digital technologies shape the nature, process and outcomes of innovation as well as the long- and short-term social, economic and cultural consequences of their offerings. The attempts to contribute to building a transdisciplinary understanding of digital innovation by bringing together a diverse set of research papers from leading scholars from business, engineering, economics, science and public policy. Their distinct perspectives advance ideas and principles intended to set the agenda for current and future research on digital innovation in ways that inform primarily firm-level strategies and practices. The course provides scope and depth for master students interested in information systems and digital technologies, innovation and entrepreneurship, strategy, and digital platforms and ecosystems. In addition, it is informative to scholars interested in the impact of digital technologies on organizations and the broader society. The course will be taught on a flipped classroom basis. A flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning focused on student engagement and active learning, giving the instructor a better opportunity to deal with mixed levels, student difficulties, and differentiated learning preferences during in-class time. This format intentionally shifts instruction to a student-centred model in which time in the classroom is used to explore topics in greater depth and create meaningful learning opportunities while students are initially introduced to new topics outside of the classroom. Content delivery takes place through mandatory pre-readings and collaborative class discussions.
