37b. Labor vs. Management

The battle lines were clearly drawn. People were either workers or bosses, and with that strong identity often came an equally strong dislike for those who were on the other side. As the number of self-employed Americans dwindled in the Gilded Age, workers began to feel strength in their numbers and ask greater and greater demands of their bosses. When those demands were rejected, they plotted schemes to win their cases.

ARPEM : une expérience concrète de mutualisation sur le campus grenoblois
Rating

Les ressources pédagogiques numériques créées dans les universités sont actuellement peu mutualisées. Les raisons que nous avançons sont leur manque de visibilité, la fragilité inhérente aux documents numériques, l absence historique de gestion de ce type d objets par les bibliothèques et les questions de propriété intellectuelle. Nous présentons le projet ARPEM, mis en place par Grenoble Universités pour répondre à cette problématique. Les premiers mois de fonctionnement nous permettent de présenter un rapport d étape et les évolutions prévisibles du projet.

Classroom Management and Supervision
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

The ability to manage, lead and supervise students during the learning process has been shown to be an indispensible component of effective teaching and learning, more so in Sub-Saharan Africa where the challenge of overcrowded classrooms hinders effective teacher instruction in the classroom. For the classroom to serve its purpose, the teacher must be able to establish order. This requires him/her to have the knowledge, attitude and skills necessary. He/she must be able to establish rapport with the students and their parents, involve students in the processes of establishing ground rules for behaviour and being accountable for their actions, manage transitions during instructions, and motivate students to maximize time-on-task, supervise students in their learning activities and lastly deal with students’ misbehaviour effectively. This module is expected to help students master these key skills. It will also equip them with the ability to be open-minded and creative about the application of these techniques to their challenges.

How do individuals and families interface with larger systems, and how do therapists intervene collaboratively? How do larger systems structure the lives of individuals and families? Relationally-trained practitioners are attempting to answer these questions through collaborative and interdisciplinary, team-focused projects in mental health, education, the law, and business, among other fields. Similarly, scholars and researchers are developing specific culturally responsive models: outreach family therapy, collaborative health care, multi-systemic school interventions, social-justice-oriented and spiritual approaches, organizational coaching, and consulting, among others. This course explores these developments and aims at developing a clinical and consulting knowledge that contributes to families, organizations, and communities within a collaborative and social-justice-oriented vision.

Corporate Communication (Business 210)

The introduction of Business Communication for Success, the textbook used throughout this course, notes that Ň[E]ffective communication takes preparation, practice, and persistence. There are many ways to learn communication skills; the school of experience, or Ôhard knocks,Ő is one of them. But in the business environment, a ÔknockŐ (or lesson learned) may come at the expense of your credibility through a blown presentation to a client.Ó Effective communication skills are a prerequisite for succeeding in business. Communication tools and activities connect people within and beyond the organization in order to establish the businessŐs place in the corporate community and the social community, and as a result, that communication needs to be consistent, effective, and customized for the business to prosper. Business Communication for Success provides theories and practical information that represent the heart of this course, while additional resources are included to expand or pose alternatives to the approaches chosen in the textbook. You will receive maximum benefits from this course if you complete the readings first and then use the additional resources to fill in the blanks and/or reconsider the topics in the textbook.
