AMDS 8800 - Epistemology and the Practice of Knowledge and Learning Management


(4 cr.) The course is a broad foundation for the study of knowledge and learning management. Students explore and discuss the history of knowledge from the early contributors, including Plato and Aristotle, to contemporary writers. They review the evolution of major movements and identify the foremost schools of thought, including rationalism, empiricism, functionalism, structuralism, and behaviorism. Students are also provided with a contemporary approach through the study of authors involved with knowledge, learning, and change management, including Senge, Drucker, Deming, Nonaka, Garvin, Argyris, Knowles, and Rogers. Students have the opportunity to demonstrate their critical-thinking and interpretive skills as they propose and defend a set of guiding principles for the practice of knowledge management. Note: This is a 12-week course. Completion is required in the first four quarters of enrollment for students in the Knowledge Management and Learning Management specializations.
