PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH AND APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY

(3 credits)

This course gives a critical framework for facilitating change in organizations:  Participatory Action Research (PAR). PAR methodology gives structure and direction for change work including systemic collaborative assessment and action planning.  Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methodology examines what gives life to human systems when they are at their best in order to move forward in the face of change. Students will learn the theoretical foundations of PAR and AI and understand applications of each from the standpoints of organizational change, strategic planning, organizational design, team building, staff development and the cultivation of individual strengths and resources.
