Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Educ

Synopsis

This course introduces the field of educational administration largely through perspectives drawn from the field of organisation theory. Students are introduced to the development of thought in the field of educational administration and to a study of the two major paradigms; the functionalist and interpretive paradigms. Students are then introduced to the concept of a post-modern organisation and explore the post-modernist perspective on organisation theory. While the focus of this course is on educational administration, the theory base draws from organisational theory that can be applied to most service organisations.NOTE: Minimum enrolment numbers apply to this offering. Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the EXT or ONLINE offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
