Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) in the Netherlands is proud to host the 7th edition of the Business School EdTech Forum. An event that enables honest discussions, shared experiences and valuable insights in an environment that promotes creative thought and collaboration.

This event is mainly on invitation and has limited seats. Event registration will open in September 2022.

This year’s EdTech forum theme, InspirEdTech for positive change, focuses on the impact created by EdTech on six core dimensions of the production of business education. We position EdTech as a force for positive change by linking it to institutions’ impact missions, stimulating the schools to adopt InspirEdTech. Read further to discover the six dimensions of positive change.

We look forward to welcoming you to RSM in December 2022!

6 dimensions of InspirEdTech for positive change

Building on the previous events in London (IMPERIAL), Milan (BOCCONI), Oslo (BI), Cambridge (JUDGE), Fontainebleau (INSEAD) and Madrid (IE), the EdTech 2022 forum focuses on six dimensions of change in business schools and asks how EdTech can positively influence them:

  1. EdTech for inclusive impact: In which ways can EdTech help to ensure that business schools have a responsible and open education agenda? How can we include impact-driven learning into our curricula and further extend its reach beyond our traditional learners towards other societal stakeholders?
  2. EdTech for lifelong development: How can business schools leverage EdTech to facilitate the development and lifelong learning of competencies for leadership?
  3. EdTech in edu-ecosystem dynamics: How can business schools benefit from the recent expansion of the edu-ecosystem through new types of trusted EdTech-driven partnerships, new forms of creation and co-creation,  and the delivery of new business education?
  4. EdTech for alternative academic career pathways: How do the continuous EdTech transitions in higher education provide new professional pathways for educational scholarship?
  5. EdTech for student co-creation: How can EdTech enable business schools and their staff to shift to a culture of creating and designing education with students?
  6. EdTech X: what’s next? What long-term consequences do continuous EdTech innovations have on business education?
