This session will be led by group 02, INLS Specialists, as we review where we've been. We will then discuss what we will do for the final. We'll also take the time to help the organization by filling out the class evaluation forms.

First, let's think about where we are in the big picture

Review the main points we covered

  • organizations are complex systems made up of many individuals and each individual within an organization contributes their identity and decisions to the organization's overall identity and impact understanding the theoretical bases for organizational culture, structure, and leadership, to empower individuals to be more effective within an organization and within their professional lives
  • an organization's culture, structure, and leadership impacts the choices it makes and the kind of organization it tries to be
  • technology has provided improved tools for organizations to use as they engage with information, but one needs to understand them in context
  • information technology professionals are in high demand, and they bear a significant responsibility to behave ethically in their personal and organizational lives
    • unethical organizational behavior, intentional or inadvertant, carried out by individuals, intentionally or inadvertantly, brings signficant risk to public health and safety

Contribute to course effectiveness by filling out your course evaluation forms

As your courses come to a close, SILS is beginning to prepare and improve for the following semester. We ask each one of you to be a part of this process by filling out the UNC/SILS Course Evaluation. Each of you should have gotten an individual email with a link to the evaluations. If you are having trouble accessing the course evaluations there are three alternate ways you can access them:

SILS Teaching Evaluation

The responses to this questionnaire are aggregated and then distributed to the instructor of the course. They are seen by no one else at SILS, and are intended solely for the instructor to improve this particular course or his/her teaching in general. They are intended solely for the instructors to improve this particular course or their teaching in general. In order to serve that purpose, we need to hear from each of you.

There are three ways students can access the evaluations if they are having trouble using the direct link in the email they get:

  1. In Sakai: In the left hand menu on the main landing page, you should see a link to COURSE EVALUATIONS
  2. In Connect Carolina: In your student center you should see a separate section that says COURSE EVALUATIONS
  3. Go to and log in using your onyen and your onyen password. When you log in you should see a list of evaluations you need to complete.

There is a time deadline to complete your course evaluations, but the sooner you can complete this small task, the better the task will be completed.
