New Online Course–Technology and the Future: Managing Change and Innovation

Shaping Tomorrow will hold its second online course taught by Peter von Stackelberg.

Course Description
In this course we will look into the future…specifically the technological changes we can expect to see over the next two to three decades and how those changes will affect us all. This course links the theoretical with the practical. We begin by examining why understanding technological change is critical to us individually, to businesses, and to society as a whole. We will examine how and why technology changes, the life cycle of new technologies, and the factors that determine whether or not new technologies will be widely adopted.

In the last two modules of this course we pull together the different concepts covered and look in detail at the next technological revolution — the Molecular Age — and what it could mean for our futures.

Throughout the course are a series of readings that highlight some of the most significant technological changes happening right now. Optional study materials and quizzes help provide deeper insights into specific topics, while a series of online discussions provide the opportunity to exchange ideas with others who are interested in technology and the future.
