EDL 665 Administration, Organizational Culture, and Planned Change (4505) (3 credits)

This course examines organizations as a set of subsystems that are both related to and dependent upon one another. Administration theory and various components of administration are reviewed, including management, decision-making, communications, organizational development, and change processes. The human aspect of organizations is analyzed, particularly individual and group behavior, human relations, intergroup dynamics, personal motivation, and conflict. A case study approach is used to enable students to apply textbook theories to real-life situations. The course is designed especially for educators seeking to enhance their understanding of administrative systems as complex human enterprises.
