The Tavistock Observation Course: Implications for Distance Education (Report No. 60).
This report describes how knowledge and skills learned in the Tavistock "Observation" course were applied to psychodynamic focused consultancy in England's Open University. Questions raised include the therapeutic and educational impact institutions may have on staff. The report explains how the Observational Course was important in supporting the development of Institute of Educational Technology activities with a psychodynamic perspective, i.e., consultancy on group processes, team work facilitation, individual work counseling, studies on the impact of technological change on work, and research on learning in groups. The report also contains information on seven Tavistock courses that are particularly relevant to education, some as part of degree programs, and where they are available. The last section of the report, "Perspectives from the Consulting to Institutions Workshop", provides an example of support which may be needed in any psychodynamic focused enquiry or consultancy. Contains 28 references. (GLR)
