Welcome to the Spring 2017 Semester!
We hope you had a restful break and are ready to jump back into your studies with us. As we begin a new year and a new semester, we want to make you aware of current and upcoming changes to our programs. The Graduate Program in Training and Development has moved to the College of Education. This will have little impact on our Master of Arts in Training & Development (MATD) students—they will have the same program requirements, the same degree, the same quality delivery, and the same outstanding faculty. The Master of Arts in Organization Development program is transitioning to a move to the College of Business that will be in effect Fall 2017. We will inform you as new information becomes available about this transition.
We’d also like to share publications by our faculty. Kathy Iverson has an upcoming chapter in an edited book Delivering Training Content and Maximizing Involvement in Communication Training and Development: Exploring the Cutting Edge published by Kendall-Hunt and also an article in the October edition of the OD Practitioner: The Thrive Model of Evidence-based Coaching.
Vince Cyboran has two upcoming chapters in edited books including The Nature of Adult Learning in Communication Training and Development: Exploring the Cutting Edge published by Kendall-Hunt and Pervasive and Ubiquitous Learning Distance Learning: Perspectives, Outcomes, and Challenges which is also forthcoming.
You may also notice the changes made to our blog format. We will still offer the same quality content, updated jobs and event pages, and other information, but in a more visual format. If you are a student, alumnus, or industry practitioner and would like to write a guest post for our blog, please contact Kathy Iverson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, our Spring session 3A begins on January 17th! Please see our schedule for specifics about courses and instructors. If you would like to add a course or make changes in your schedule, please contact Tara Hawkins at email@example.com.
We hope you have a happy and healthy new year and look forward to working with you this semester.
