HH5630 - Transformational Inquiry and Research

Credits: 3

This course will illuminate the potential of research/inquiry to effect transformation in the research, participants, organizations, communities and cultures. Transformation manifests as meaningful and
profound changes in one’s attitudes and views of oneself as well as one’s view of others and the world at large, which in turn catalyze consequential personal and organizational change and evolution. The transformative potential of research can be optimized through purposeful intention, careful design, and the deliberate inclusion of multiple ways of knowing. Through this course, students will explore and learn to use transformation-fostering research/inquiry approaches alone or in combination with traditional research methods as means for effecting personal and/or organizational transformation, health, and sustainability.
