Teaching Organizational Analysis.
Rosenfeld, Heather L.
Across many organizational communication curricula, faculty are including undergraduate courses on the analysis and assessment of an organization's communication. This paper was designed to aid potential instructors of an organizational analysis course in their preparation and execution. The paper contains a syllabus which provides one example of how such a course might be executed. The paper states that ideally, this course should be taught as an upper division follow-up course to the introduction to organizational communication. The paper points out that the crux of this course is the final assignment for which students join self-selected groups to study a small organization using some of the audit methods discussed in class. It notes that the final month of the semester provides students scheduled class time to meet with the instructor for several different workshops. An appendix presents a case study in developing a questionnaire. (NKA)
