Due to COVID 19, the Organizational Theory class is 100% remote this quarter. We will rely on asynchronous (online/videos/readings) and synchronous (live participation) options throughout the weekend. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit. Please refer to canvas and email for up to date information and refer to https://evergreen.edu/covid19 for additional information regarding The Evergreen State College.
This course will cover materials that can help create a resilient learning organization. Topics include, but are not limited to, organization theory and design, managing human systems, group development and performance, inter- and intra-group communication, information management, and ethical decision-making. Students will learn strategies and skills that will help them understand how to organize people to enhance the delivery of public services. The materials in this course will aid students in attaining the competencies to: lead and manage in public governance; analyze, synthesize, think critically, and make decisions; articulate and apply a public service perspective; and communicate and interact productively within diverse and changing organizational systems and citizenry.
