Abstract

The present society, and in particular the organizations, are currently undergoing a series of

metamorphoses of political, economic and social order. These metamorphoses, often referred to in the

literature as digital transformation, are due to the rapid and uncontrollable evolution of information

technologies and the role they can play in the organizational context. Digital Transformation (DT) is

therefore a highly complex and comprehensive enterprise throughout the organization. However,

digital transformation alone does not come into any organization for the much-desired success to

happen; it is necessary that the information systems, the basis of operation of an organization, are

aligned and are part of the same transformation. In this context, organizations have to follow

technological developments, update their IS to become agile and innovative so as not to lose

competitiveness. Analyzing the scenario of digital transformation, it becomes clear the need for

institutions, namely higher education, to offer training to present and future workers in this area. In this

paper it is proposed an extension of a curriculum of a course in Digital Transformation in order to

accommodate the approach called ECLETIC that aims the use active methodologies in the teaching

learning process. The use of the ECLETIC approach is justified by the fact that in addition to a

curriculum of any one course must respond to current needs and trends, it should also address the

way these skills are acquired, which is why the teaching-learning process is not less important.
