Course Description:

Business is in the midst of a revolutionary transformation. Emerging technologies that combine AI, machine learning, cutting-edge visualization techniques, and social robots are fast revolutionizing the business workplace globally. Building a motived workforce is a critical responsibility of managers. To do so, managers must know why people behave in organizations the way they do. Research in cognitive sciences, artificial intelligence and neuroscience has generated significant insights that can enrich our knowledge of people. This course is designed to focus on processes and methods that can improve the attitudes and behaviors of organizational members.  You will learn to know more about yourself and others. You will also learn how to influence and predict your own behaviours as well as those of others. Within the context of a world of social media, AI, and machine learning, you will learn various organizational behaviour theories and concepts, and then apply them appropriately to real‐life situations to make sense of human behaviours and human‐robots interactions at work.  This course adopts a flipped classroom approach, which will give you ample opportunity to share your knowledge with others and also learn with them collaboratively.
