Course Description: The course is designed to develop an understanding of how to create and support technological change through a systems approach. Topics include sources of resistance to change, tools for planning, decision-making and change, creating and supporting a culture for learning and change, and managing and institutionalizing change systems.
Course Reflection: This course was very interesting and useful for me. As the technology coordinator for the Webster Area School District, I am often asked to assist in organizing technology sharing sessions; which are often attended with reservation by some staff members. This class has provided me with concepts and ideas on how to effectively and reassuringly introduce staff to new technology.
