Organization development occurs in contexts that are local and global, multicultural, and diverse. OD practitioners and scholars must understand the inclusive, exclusive and cross-cultural experience or working in these varied contexts, and how to address issues and challenges through organization, group, and individual organization development and change initiatives. If addressed systematically and effectively supported, workforce diversity and cross-cultural collaboration can provide significant positive results impacting human and organizational outcomes. In this course, students will have up-to-date knowledge about the new realities of the global and international workforce, understand interdisciplinary theories of cross-cultural differences in workplaces, and develop skills in designing interventions that contribute to inclusive and multicultural workplaces and effective global organization development.

The Global Team Practicum serves similar purposes as the other practica with the addition of being conducted in another country and culture and in a team structure. This course will run for whole cohort. This is an opportunity to continue developing your practice skills, working collaboratively with others in service to the client and project, and learning to be effective and adaptable in a different culture than your own. The Global Team Practicum will be supervised by the two faculty who organize and participate with you. They will serve as your practicum advisors jointly with being the course faculty. A deeper understanding of cultural implications for OD requires critical exploration, both individually and in your teams. During the course you will use transformative learning pedagogy and explore the various aspects of both the work and the lived-experience. Discussions and debriefs will include what’s happening in the project(s), what individuals are experiencing, how OD practices are working and how they need to be adapted, and synthesizing learnings. This course will include critical classroom or online instruction and dialogue leading up to and following the visit as well as numerous periods of reflection and discussion during time at the client sight and within the other country. At the close of this course, students will examine their professional experience through the lens of Transformative Learning Theory, which returns full circle to the way OD professionals reflect upon their assumptions in order to develop a global practice that is increasingly flexible, critically-reflective, and culturally empathic.

The course focuses on the design of a research project that will lead to their dissertation proposal. Participants will continue to explore the elements of positivistic and interpretive research approaches in social sciences. In this course, the participants will learn how to identify research problems/questions and make choices about the most appropriate methodology and methods, either interpretive/qualitative or functional/quantitative. The participants will be able to apply the learning in crafting a statement of a problem/research question, its importance, the methodology that might be employed in carrying out-in accordance with the students’ understanding of their own paradigm, as well as the application or usefulness of the research. By the end of the course, students will complete a draft of their dissertation proposal with dissertation advisor’s input.

Students become members of a leadership/research team and investigate and analyze a case study involving an educational dilemma. After identifying root causes, students examine and critique underlying assumptions regarding problem definition and solution(s) using the lens of social justice, and apply adult learning and change theory to identify the opportunities for leadership and potential barriers to implementing change.

Students become members of research teams and co-write a review of literature on an assigned research question. Students then consider and apply educational philosophy and theory to analyze and interpret review findings. Students gain knowledge and skills with regard to forming an argument, using APA style, and judging the merit of scholarly studies using established criteria in the field.

This course explores the social, cultural, and historical foundations of education. We will consider education as formal schooling at all levels and analyze the development of schooling as a social institution in relationship to broader social, cultural, and political economic relations from a historical perspective. We will learn about and apply major theoretical concepts which scholars of education have developed to understand the dialectical relationship between schooling and society.
