Topic: Down the Rabbit Hole of the Governance of Blockchain Solution Design and Implementation


Abstract: Now that blockchain technology is becoming more mature and the peak of inflated expectations is slowly placed behind us, blockchain is designed and implemented into different goods and services. Examples are 1) waste management to prevent fraud, 2) healthcare for managing and sharing access to electronic patient files, and 3) the entertainment industry where rights of musicians are effectively stored and shared. The body of knowledge on the governance of blockchain technology currently concludes that many projects start with the development of the actual application and end-goals in mind, however, lack a shared view and documentation of the governance. This is especially important as blockchain technology is built on the principle of decentralization; thus a consortium of partners is required. Because of this, problems arise when conflicts occur in the consortium or decisions must be taken about the future of the blockchain solution in development. At the HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht Blockchain Lab we focus on research on the governance of blockchain. In this talk, we summarize and present our findings on this topic from multiple executed subsidized sub-studies, with the goal to establish a common understanding of the governance of blockchain solutions as well as to create awareness to ensure governance is considered when designing and implementing blockchain solutions. At the same time, the findings offer an opportunity to identify future research directions on this topic.

Topic: Using Mixed Reality to Provide Experience for Internship Students in the Field of Auditing Studies during Covid 19


Abstract:  Internships or practical work for students currently in higher education or university has become a necessity. Internships are important because they introduce students to the world of work, so that students not only learn theory, but also practice. The current condition where the world is hit by the Covid 19 pandemic makes many students unable to physically intern. Students cannot come to work and to clients due to social distancing. Mixed reality is one of the solution so that students can get virtual internship experience. This research is a descriptive qualitative research. In this study, we present data in the form of literature reviews and observations regarding the use of mixed reality in providing internship experiences to students who specialize in the field of auditing science. The results of our research state that mixed reality is more widely used in providing virtual experiences, students can gain work experience without having to meet people physically, however, some challenges must also be considered in augmented development and virtual reality in audit learning, including: content problems, content development costs are still expensive, and also the issue of health problems after usage.
