COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES: As members of many types of organizations throughout our lives, we are all affected at some time or another by their internal dynamics. These dynamics consist of the behaviors of individuals and students as they work and interact together with the organization. In some cases, this "organizational behavior" may generate an environment that is very pleasant to function within and highly conducive to effective work processes. In other cases, it may create an unpleasant and dysfunctional work environment. To help us best understand and address these issues, the field of organizational behavior has developed as the study of the behavior of individuals and students in organizations. Scientific investigations in this area have generated a body of knowledge on issues such as individual behaviors (e.g., individual perception, motivation, leadership, decision-making, etc.), students and teamwork (e.g., internal student processes and student dynamics, interpersonal processes, etc.), and organizational context and characteristics (e.g., organizational structure, organizational design, organizational culture, etc.).
