Course Description and Structure:

The increasing ubiquity of collaborative, social networking, and mobile computing technologies is playing a key role in transforming work practices. Such technological affordances have influenced the communicative and collaborative practices that offer new opportunities but also challenges to contemporary organizational and inter-organizational systems. Yet our understanding of these changes and the implications for management remain poorly developed. Hence, this course offers rich theoretical and practical insights into the various dimensions of the relationship between communication and collaboration processes and technological advances in various organizational and inter-organizational contexts. In so doing, it will draw on bodies of social and organization theory to develop in-depth understanding of communication and collaboration practices that are at the heart of organizational and societal transformations in the Digital Age.

Importantly, a key rationale of this course is to provide students with a mature and actionable understanding of this emerging landscape, with a view to shaping various collaborative arrangements and handling the related communication and technical challenges.
