After partial lectures from an instructor, students will participate in group presentations and subsequent discussions. The subject of group presentations will be divided into two types -- (1) the content of each chapter based on rigorous understandings, (2) case studies of the modern companies that can deepen understandings of each chapter and develop students' own critical perspective on each case of digital transformation.
