New Perspectives in Public Management
Friday, February 19, 2010
The students in PLSC 391 Public Administration turned the tables, literally, on Dr. Alexander this week. Alexander told the class early in the week that diverse perspectives in organizations can facilitate institutional creativity, and since then, the students have been rearranging themselves each day around the classroom.
Their practical application of the theory culminated Friday when the students physically rearranged the seats and the classroom podium so that Alexander and presenting students had to speak from the back of the classroom. Alexander reported that the diversity in this class has indeed spurred innovation, particularly in the students!
