Syllabus / Public content Section Term Instructor
BAC 28 01 May 2016 Niranjan Harrison (primary instructor)

Description

Will increase the student's understanding of people's behaviour in the workplace and the forces that shape that behaviour. Organizational structure, job design, motivation, understanding individual behaviour, working in groups, leadership, power and organizational change are core topics. Theory is augmented with tools and models for working effectively with and through others. Students are challenged to seek opportunities to contribute to an effective work environment through their mind-sets and actions. There is an emphasis on the students examining what they learn about workplace behaviour in view of what they have already experienced. To accomplish this, the format of each class is more a workshop session than a lecture. Students are active participants in their own learning experience and the emphasis is on the practical, albeit with theory as a base.
