HOD-803OD Practicum in Organization & Systems Change

4 semester credits
Students explore the relevance of scholarly concepts, theories and research to professional and personal problem solving. This course helps students become more insightful practitioners. Students demonstrate the essential skills of a scholar/practitioner by applying theory and scholarship to a significant project in their organization, community, or other human system. Students engage regularly with the faculty assessor to plan and implement the project and to reflect on project steps, intended and unintended outcomes of the project, their role in the project, and their personal and professional effectiveness. The practicum is intended to engage students in praxis, a cyclical process of critical reflection and action through which one engages in actions to create change, reflects on those actions, and in response may revise one’s conceptions and theories of change and plan new actions.
