Office Hours: Tuesday 15.00-17.00
The instructor stimulates learning in a variety of ways, since he believes that the learning process happens in different ways. The course will be therefore based on lectures, discussions, reading and case studies. Motivation and creation of the right atmosphere are also deemed of the utmost importance.
This course will provide you with a comprehensive exposure to practices and research in the field of organizational behavior and psychology applied to work. The main objectives of the course are:
The course is designed so that the concepts covered in the readings are reviewed in class through a combination of lectures, class discussions and case studies.
Content of the Course
Attendance: Expect your instructor to keep track of attendance in the class, with each missing lesson being equivalent to 3.75 points (each hour being 1.25 points). Each absence will cost you points off your grade. Full participation in all the lessons equals to 100 points. The only exceptions to this rule are severe illness (doctor’s note required) and UNYT approved trips/activities. Appropriate documentation for absences is necessary the class day directly before or after the one you miss. In general: this class is intensive and interactive. Missing class could seriously affect your grade!
Discussion and class interventions: the instructor will keep track of how often you contribute through interventions during the lessons and during the time allocated for class discussion. The maximum number of points that you can get in this component is equal to 100 points.
Research papers: the instructor will assign research papers on topics relevant to the course, to be done in class and home, and to be presented in public in class. The maximum number of points that you can get in this component is equal to 100 points.
Exams: Two examinations will be taken. The exams will cover only the chapters on which you have not been tested. Test format may combine a mixture of true/false, multiple choice, and essay questions. Essay questions will be chosen by a list of questions previously submitted to the students. Students will not only need to show to be able to reply to the answers through studying the materials covered by lessons, but to add personal considerations and personal ideas. Each exam can be valued to a maximum of 100 points each.
Deadlines in the fields of management are critical. Therefore, late assignments and absence from tests will not be tolerated. In the event of illness or emergency, contact your instructor in advance to determine whether special arrangements are possible. The University’s rules on academic dishonesty (e.g. cheating, plagiarism, submitting false information) will be enforced.
If you feel that you have encountered special learning difficulties or serious problems that interfere with your studies, please make an appointment with UNYT Counseling Center, Dr. E. Cenko (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or the Academic Support Center, Dr. A. Canollari (email@example.com). For more information, please contact me or your academic advisor.
