COM 415 - Communication and Virtual Organizing

Prerequisites, COM 100 , or SCC 100  with a minimum grade of B- and COM 295 , or SCC 295  with a minimum grade of C. The first half of the course examines how social media and emerging technologies make organizing without a traditional organization possible. The second half of the course explores how human agents and technological tools co-create virtual organizations through strategic cycles of recursive interactions. We examine theoretical frameworks, practical strategies, and current empirical research. Students will work in teams to complete a project on linking communication theories and organizational practices to build effective virtual organizations. Some sections of this course may be offered for communication studies and/or strategic and corporate communication majors only. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
