Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Human Behaviour in Organisations is concerned with the application of organisational behavioural principles, research methods and intervention strategies to practical problems of organisations and employees and workgroups around the world. An ability to apply these principles are important because employees around the world are increasingly likely to interact with people from different backgrounds and in different group settings. If not managed properly, such diversity can create problems in the workplace and impeded work processes.

This unit will enable you to acquire a conceptual understanding of organisational theories and research methodologies. In addition, you will develop the skills to apply these concepts to develop an evidence-based intervention plan.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Critically analyse fundamental organisational behavioural concepts and theories.

2. Identify and assess a specific workgroup problem/conflict and apply fundamental organisational behaviour concepts to solve the issue.

3. Propose an evidence-based intervention plan.

4. Work independently, and as a team, and apply negotiating abilities with group members.
