EDU8318 Organisational Transformation Through Learning

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Further Education and Training


The first module sets the context for the course, critically considering why organisational transformation through learning is of fundamental importance to educational institutions in the 21st Century. Different approaches to organisational transformation are introduced and their underpinning concepts explored. The first three modules serve as an orientation and theoretical preparation for the fourth module which gives detailed consideration to a particular process, IDEAS, that has the demonstrated capacity to transform schools. IDEAS is used as a practical example a way that organisational transformation through learning may be achieved in schools. The main components: the Research-based Framework, an implementation process and the notion of parallel leadership are considered in depth and their practical application explored. For this course, it is desirable (though not essential) to have access to a workplace setting where aspects of IDEAS may be trialled and/or its key concepts explored in context.
