Subject of course

Ways of thinking in digitisation provides an introduction and an overview of digitisation from the point of view of their working and thinking ways, thus providing a kind of applied philosophy of science. The course is intended to arouse interest in further studies and to enable students to better classify the content presented in later courses. Students should be able to understand digitisation  both in science and in practice, and to implement this knowledge as part of their further studies.
