This course utilizes an active learning model that encourages participants to: (1) to study and analyze the dynamic forces that influence the life of groups and organizations; (2) to consider aspects of our personal and organizational lives that are not normally within our awareness; and (3) to examine how these beneath- the-surface assumptions, frameworks, defense mechanisms, and habits (especially those related to authority) have an active influence on much of what we do.
The primary method used for this course is based on the premise that learning about human relations leadership, authority, and organizational dynamics can best be accomplished by experiencing and reflecting on these realities in a direct, immediate and personal way. The course also incorporates elements of more traditional pedagogical approaches including lectures, seminars, readings and an analytical paper. Students will have multiple opportunities to interact with the course instructor as well as professionals from a variety of backgrounds who will assist with the work as it unfolds.
