Amazing Course in Ireland – Summer 2015
One of the great things about being at the Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) at The George Washington University is opportunities like this summer course: HOL 6747 – International and Multicultural Issues in Organizations.
From June 1-5, I am going with my adviser Dr. Maria Cseh and a class of students to Cork, Ireland to study international and multicultural issues in organizations. We will make site visits to a variety of organizations, meet leaders or industry, and attend the 16th Conference on Human Resource Development Research and Practice.
Here is the course description from the syllabus:
This course will explore the impact of culture and globalization on the lives of individuals, organizations and societies. It will examine models and conceptual frameworks of culture to understand the nature of learning, change and leadership across cultures with a focus on Ireland. Topics discussed will include the meaning of culture, cultural models and conceptual frameworks, cross-cultural communication, learning, change and leadership across cultures. The discussions related to the assigned comparative and cross-cultural studies and the reflections on experiential activities will lay the background for exploring alternative approaches to managing and developing employees, organizations, communities and societies.
Needless to say I am thrilled to be going and supporting Dr. Cseh. And there’s still room if any GW students are reading this and would like to join! If you’re interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Cseh at email@example.com.
Onward in learning!
