MTEL Elective Courses

mtl200 Strategic Management and Educational Leadership in TEL Environments

Decisions about educational and scientific institutional directions should be made strategically, taking into consideration an analysis of the competition, the market orientation and demand, and a clear understanding of institutional core competencies. This course will present and discuss strategic management approaches and methods and their use as a means for strategic control within the institution, specifically in reference to implementation of technology enhanced learning initiatives and projects. Initial course discussion will concentrate on the basic concepts of strategic management and its suitability for educational and scientific institutions: Which products are produced? Who are the customers? And who are the competitors? Next, relevant approaches to strategic management will be evaluated from both market-oriented and resource-based perspectives.

mtl205 Human Resource Management for TEL Organisations

Personnel management consists of all functions that have the goal of enhancing productivity and development of human resources in order to increase the value and competitive advantage of the organisation, a central and strategic goal that is particularly important within labor-intensive organisations such as educational and scientific institutions that use technology enhanced learning (TEL). This course provides an overview of human resource management topics from tasks and target groups to organisational frameworks within institutions, with a focus on professionalization of human resources management through strategic system design from a resource- based perspective (recruitment, on-boarding of staff, personnel development, motivation and incentive systems for faculty participating in TEL), as well as development of digital literacy skills.

mtl210 Organisational Management in TEL Environments

Bringing together the central concepts of education and organisation creates a fundamental tension within the institution. This conceptual merging occurs against a backdrop of complex economic, technological, and social conditions, thus creating a particularly challenging dynamic that requires effective management of educational and research areas. This course examines the structure, management, and development of educational and scientific organisations, with a focus on the technology-enhanced learning organisation and the structural conditions and management philosophy that must be in place to ensure opportunities for growth within loosely-coupled institutional systems, in particular organisational support structures for the development and implementation of TEL programs.
