EDUC 8117 - Educational Organizations and Contexts


(4 cr.) Research efforts to support the educational process and effective leadership demand an understanding of schools and academic institutions as complex systems and units of change. In this course, education professionals examine theories of organizational functioning and apply these insights to the behaviors of individuals and groups within educational systems. They also explore systems thinking and organizational effectiveness that supports teaching and learning. Education professionals engage in assignments designed to provide practical application of course content through which they analyze ethical behavior in organizational development; summarize, test, and evaluate theories; construct an organizational development scenario; evaluate a case study related to organizational development; and assess their own educational organization. (Prerequisite(s): EDUC 8115.)
