Credit Points: 15
MAN2120 Organisational Behaviour II
MAN2145 Human Resource Management II

During the unit students will be given the opportunity to develop a broad view of the complex and contesting issues that confront designing systems of learning within organisations.  The unit introduces you to the basic concepts and theories of workplace learning and asks you to apply some of these concepts to your own workplace issues and to participate in simulated training delivery.


This unit encourages students to construct their own concepts of workplace learning, and assess their own skills for managing learning at work.  It prepares managers to contribute to the development of learning programmes and to assess their own capability to perform training roles within organisations. You will complete the unit by constructing learning programmes and experiencing programme delivery.  While this plan outlines the broad scope of this unit, the specific student needs of each class will be used to customise the emphasis placed upon the diverse content within this unit.
