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.

This doctoral practicum is the third of three field experiences required in the University of St. Thomas Doctoral Program in Organization Development (OD). In this practicum, students – in consultation with their faculty advisors – will work individually with a client organization on an OD project. After the initial entry into the organization, the student will follow the OD process by writing a contract which details the nature of the work, conducting the project, providing feedback to the client, and identifying key learnings from the work experience.

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.
