Module contents
Bringing together the central concepts of education and organisation creates a fundamental tension within the institution. This conceptual merging occurs against a backdrop of complex economic, technological, and social conditions, thus creating a particularly challenging dynamic that requires effective management of educational and research areas. This course examines the structure, management, and development of educational and scientific organisations, with a focus on the technology-enhanced learning organisation and the structural conditions and management philosophy that must be in place to ensure opportunities for growth within loosely-coupled institutional systems, in particular organisational support structures for the development and implementation of TEL programs.
