Do we all have to learn to code?

The Virtual Coffee Break on the Alumniportal Deutschland

Topic: "The future of work"

In any discussion with friends or acquaintances about the future of work, the topic of digitalisation is bound to come up at some point. This issue is so omnipresent that some people are starting to wonder: will IT specialists soon be the only job-seekers in demand everywhere, while all other professions lose significance? Will jobs only be created in the technology sectors? Must we therefore learn programming in order to be fit for the future?

Join us in a virtual discussion with the DAAD Alumna Dr. Marija Stambolieva, who takes in her research work a deep look at the developments in the workplace and the predictions made by experts concerning the future of work.

When: December 17, 15:00 - 16:30 (CET)
