Biztech Event Series – ‘Navigating the Digital Economy’ – Part 1
About this event
Biztech is delighted to announce three events in their series ‘Navigating the Digital Economy’.
These are part of the SkillsHub:MK programme of events and are FREE OF CHARGE.
Many organisations are seeking to transform what they do through the use of digital technology and data. Although there are many examples and success stories, the world of the digital economy is expanding fast and is becoming increasingly complex and hard to follow.
This series is an opportunity to hear from those who have to make sense of the digital economy and the role that technology plays within it – the Educator who wants to know what skills are needed, the Entrepreneur who wants to transform what organisations do, and the Advisor and Consultant who puts the technology into place and gets it to deliver.
Event 1 – Scanning the digital horizon – an Educator’s perspective
Educators such as the Open University (OU) are constantly horizon scanning to understand where digital technology is headed. It is essential they do.
Through their Management and Apprenticeship programmes, they educate a major proportion of the UK’s workforce, equipping them for the jobs of tomorrow. They also publish reports about the digital skills that will be needed in the future.
To figure out the digital direction of travel, and get it right, the OU has to be at the top of its game. How do they do it? And do they get it right?
Find out how the OU navigates the technology trends and developments that are important for businesses. Discover their process for finding out what’s current and what’s next – and learn what businesses can take away from their process.
