Curriculum overview

Themes of communication, ethics, and inclusion span all areas. Specific content and structure of offerings are designed to meet the unique needs of the organization.

Key curriculum elements

Rooted in adult learning and development theory, the curriculum is designed to be immediately applicable, develop a reflective practice, and further the strategic goals of the organization. Key elements of the curriculum drive this design:

  1. Project-focused: allows integration of concepts and leadership development
  2. Dual mentoring: organizational mentor and coaching through the Division of Management
  3. Sponsor customization: objectives aligned with organization's competencies & values

Instructional elements

The Division of Management works closely with organizations to select instructional elements based on the organization's need and budget. Sample elements are described below:

  1. Keynotes: organize events focused around faculty expertise or regional/national speakers
  2. Workshops: facilitate hands-on, interactive workshops to connect theory to application
  3. Projects: collaborate with sponsor to identify and scope projects that serve as opportunities for participants to stretch, address organizational needs, and anchor learning
  4. Coaching: offer individual and small group coaching for leadership development

Program evaluation

In the spirit of modeling continual improvement, program evaluation will occur throughout with summative evaluation at the end of the project. After each session, participants will provide feedback about their learning and how to make the sessions more productive. Should the engagement span multiple modules, the Division of Management team will meet with sponsors to debrief.
