Class Description:
This course examines the theory and practice of strategic planning and management for governments, public agencies, nonprofit organizations, collaborations, and, to a lesser extent, communities. The design of the course has been strongly influenced by experiential learning theory, including David Kolb's learning cycle and James Zull's views on improving the practice of teaching based on the biology of learning. Most classes will be in two parts. The first part will utilize a discussion or lecture-discussion format focused on the topic and readings for the week. The second part will involve an examination, discussion, and reflection on a specific case, instruction in a specific technique, or simulation exercises. Periodic individual, team, and class assessments will be utilized.
