Barriers to Organizational Learning in a Multi-Institutional Initiative
Kezar, Adrianna J.; Holcombe, Elizabeth M.
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, v79 n6 p1119-1138 Jun 2020
As colleges and universities strive to change and improve, organizational learning has emerged as an important tool to facilitate change. At the same time, foundations and funders are increasingly promoting scaled change through projects that bring multiple institutions together to learn from one another. However, to date, there is little research on organizational learning in multi-institutional change initiatives or the unique challenges of promoting learning in cross-institutional settings. This paper focuses on one such effort, the AAU STEM Initiative, and outlines barriers to organizational learning that can result when national organizations attempt to facilitate learning among sets of college campuses.
