An Integrated Approach to Educational Development

Teaching & Learning

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Irving K Barber Learning Centre, Seminar (Room 2.22 A/B)

Teaching and Learning initiatives, collaborations, and practices occur within various organizational systems, cultures, interpersonal dynamics, and worldviews.  Process consultation (Schein, 1999) and human systems design are methods of addressing implicit, and often unnamed, forces at play - those cultural factors that constitute “the water in which we swim.” Institutional climate, conflicting agendas, unaddressed underlying issues, and unchecked assumptions are part of what process consultation calls "secondary processes" that can undermine success when overlooked.
