EDPA5001: Leading organisations for social justice

Organisation theories provide us with different lenses through which we can understand what an organisation is and what it means to be part of one. This unit explores the purpose and impact of organisations from a social justice perspective. It explores the development of organisation theory over time and connects theory with research and practice in order to understand organisations, systems, management and administration, and impact. Reference will be made to social, philosophical and organisational theories. The focus will be on competing theories, alternative approaches to management and ethical concerns and what this means for contemporary practice in a variety of educational systems.
