"Appreciative Inquiry is about the coevolutionary search for the best in people, their organizations, and the relevant world around them. In its broadest focus, it involves systematic discovery of what gives “life” to a living system when it is most alive, most effective, and most constructively capable in economic, ecological, and human terms." (AI Commons)
The aim of this course is to provide a general introduction to AI for students of various fields requiring knowledge of organisational development.
"Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a way of being and seeing. It is both a worldview and a process for facilitating positive change in human systems, e.g., organizations, groups, and communities." (Center for Appreciative Inquiry)
Learn how to facilitate organisational development and transformation in a way which taps into the life force of the system and grows the positive creative energy of the individuals and groups within it.
Delve into the theoretical underpinnings of AI including social constructionism and grounded theory.
