Visoka škola strukovnih studija za menadžment i poslovne komunikacije, Sremski Karlovci
Digital media technologies and socio-educational changes (MESTD - 47020)

Keywords: educational change; technology; resistance to change; human resources management; social aspects; higher education; contemporary technology
The technology and economy are constantly changing by their nature, and because of that, there is some pressure on educational institutions to change their structure and functional characteristics. Parallel to global development, especially in the last quarter of a century, there has been an evident change related to the presentation of educational programs, educational technology, learning and teaching, as well as roles in the educational process typically performed by teachers and students. Schools must create a more efficient educational environment, which will take into account the educational needs, generate the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and develop an organizational strategy that will ensure the development of individuals and the sustainability of social life, which will prepare individuals for the inevitable change. Therefore, the paper deals with the problems of resistance to changes in higher education through a theoretical analysis of the problem, while also examining ways for overcoming resistance through concrete actions. The willingness and ability of employees to be actively and appropriately involved in the process of change is one of the key elements that affects the efficiency, profitability, reputation and survival of any organization.
