Course Learning Objectives: 1. Define the function of human resource management in an organization. 2. Identify the many specific components of an effective human resource program. 3. Integrate organizational human resource needs with concepts of human needs and theories of motivation. 4. Develop skills in analyzing human resource problems and determining appropriate solutions. 5. Demonstrate ability to integrate theoretical concepts into policy decisions regarding human resource matters. The course will focus on active learning and will mix a lecture-based approach with discussion and application. Research strongly suggests that active learning in conjunction with traditional lecture- based teaching methods is effective for student learning and skill-building. Successful active learning requires a major investment from both of us. You will need to study the assigned readings before each class meeting , do a fair amount of thinking, and be prepared to contribute to the class discussion. REQUIRED MATERIALS
