Teaching > Learning & Organizational Change
Designed to complement the School of Education & Social Policy undergraduate practicum, this seminar supports students to develop skills in qualitative research methodologies, including data collection, data coding, data analysis, and theory-building in the field of Learning & Organizational Change.
In addition to supporting students to improve research skills, the seminar provides an opportunity for self-reflection. At the heart of this course is the idea that, in order to make sense of the world around us, we must embrace positive and negative experiences, equally.
Through field notes, analytical memos, and discussions we reflect on and carefully analyze our experiences in order to identify lessons that may inform our decisions and actions throughout our professional lives. Each moment of surprise and each success reveals new insights about our chosen professional fields. Each hindrance becomes a learning opportunity, the lessons of which affect the kinds of leaders and colleagues we become.
