INLS385-002 Spring 2021


This session will be led by group 04 - The Ocelots, 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

Then, let's think about the small scale - who we are and who we want to be

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 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

information technology professionals are in high demand, but 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

Five questions

  1. what other things did we learn about how organizations operate?
  2. what do organizations depend on to be successful and effective? and can they be one without the other?
  3. how can we guage an organization's effectiveness?
  4. how does technology contribute to an organization's effectiveness? what kinds of technology specifically do this?
  5. how can you all contribute to this effectiveness?

One request

Contribute to course effectiveness by filling out your course evaluation forms

Course evaluations will be handled by a system called Class Climate. Everything - from email reminders to data compilation - will be done through Class Climate. You can expect to see that evaluations will go out during the second to last week of classes. From there Class Climate will handle the rest; it will notify and remind students that they must complete their evaluations. Evaluations will end by the end of finals.

SILS Teaching Evaluation

As part of the Class Climate course evaluation process at the end of the semester, SILS has its own additional evaluation questionnaire for its courses. This questionnaire was originally developed by ILSSA. The questions are open-ended and allow you to provide more specific comments about each course. The responses to these questionnaires are aggregated and then distributed to the instructor for the course. They are intended solely for the instructor to improve this particular course or his/her 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.

Evaluations close soon. If you have any questions, please let me know.
