Purpose of this Instructor’s Guide The purpose of this instructor’s guide is to support and energize individuals who use Organization Development: A Reader in their teaching – instructors who teach courses on organizational change, OD, the history of the field, leading change, consulting skills, and organizational effectiveness and health in undergraduate and graduate programs in management, the professions, and the administrative sciences, as well as those involved in professional development and corporate education activities. More specifically, this guide provides opportunities for both new and seasoned educators to learn more about (1) the possibilities in teaching about organizational change and development; (2) ways to design courses or successful learning modules for diverse student audiences using Organization Development; and (3) suggested cases, activities, and other support materials that complement use of Organization Development.

Overview of the Instructor’s Guide This instructor’s guide is divided into four parts. PART 1 provides an introduction to Organization Development: A Reader. It discusses the overall purpose and content of the book, the philosophy and central tenets that underpin it. PART 2 explores teaching with Organization Development. It contains chapter-by-chapter summaries and suggested ways to think about teaching various kinds and levels of OD and change courses. PART 3 provides a sample syllabus for a graduate-level change course, learning modules on consulting skills, teaching activities, and case suggestions. PART 4 summarizes sources for cases, films, videos, and other internet-based teaching materials.

Memo to Instructor

...shady since I took both of them about four years ago, so that means I will just have to do some extra studying for this class. The next year after those I took a technical writing class and kind of enjoyed that. I learned how to write a resume and also how to format business letters. We also worked on mock interviews and learned that it is important on how you layout your resume when applying because it could show that you are more professional. I have always been such an independent person when it came to school work that I never really wanted to ask for any feedback from friends or family. I regret it now because I am sure that it would have made me a better writer if I would have had more criticism from people other than just the instructor. It is funny now to look back at some of the papers that I wrote in the past and see that if I would have just let somebody proof read it then I would have definitely made a better grade and not turned it in with so many simple errors. My goal is to change that habit and start asking for more feedback other than just the teacher. I have had several different writing teachers throughout my time as a student. My first English teacher in college basically just gave an A if I turned in my weekly research paper in on time and it filled up two sheets of paper. So honestly I really did not learn to much in that class, which is why I was so unprepared for my second English class. The teacher of that class seemed to analyze......

...way to judge the quality of programs delivered by technology. A number of regional and national organizations are now involved in efforts to develop standards for distance learning programs. These groups include the regional higher education accrediting associations’ Task Force on Distance Learning and The Alliance, a group formed by the American Council on Education. The efficacy of learning by means of technology is not itself being questioned in these current efforts. Research and evaluation studies put that issue to rest long ago. Instead, the quality concern focuses on issues related to student support and to program integrity: Will students in “virtual” learning situations be isolated, with no semblance of human contact with their instructors or other students? How can effective advising and academic sup- port services be made available to distance learning students? How can students in such programs be sure that their learning experiences will equal those on campuses and that their degrees will be seen as equivalent to a traditionally delivered degree program? Regional accrediting associations, too, are at last beginning to acknowledge that traditional means of evaluating an institution’s services must be revised when looking at programs delivered off campus. The number of books in the library is no longer the relevant issue, for example. Rather, what is important is whether and which technological means are available to assist students at a distance or in rural......
