Course Content (Syllabus)
The aim of this course is the profound understanding of the role of education in the economy of a learning society. The course detects and discusses the transformation of educational structures targeting optimal response according to the financial models of modern societies.   The education sector is compared with other sectors (as is for example the the Health sector or the ICT sector) on the grounds of production and use of new knowledge, exploited in three main axes: a) the attributes of basic concepts correlating knowledge and learning b) the contribution of economic analyses to understanding the mechanisms of production, mediation and use of knowledge in various fields, and c) the new economic trends leading to the development of a "learning economy" with whatever this implies to traditional educational institutions (schools, universities, etc) Emphasis is given to the presentation of issues concerning the copyright protection for educational software and learning material. The course addresses the following topics in specific:    - The role of Education in the Learning Society    - The creation of a Learning System    - The production, transmission and use of knowledge in various sectors (eg Education, Health)    - Knowledge and Innovation Systems    - The use of ICT to support Knowledge Management    - The characteristics of a learning economy, policies of innovation in the production areas and the diffusion of knowledge    - Consequences of knowledge integration for the dipole universitiy - industry    - Intellectual property rights for software products and learning materials according to the Berne Convention, the relevant directives of the European Union for the protection of intellectual property and the corresponding Greek laws    - Digest on Computer Law topics    - The change of the dominant "paradigm" in education    - The introduction of ICT in schools: Cultures in negotiation
