** Comm 188A : Org. Training & Development ** Why this is one of the best classes ever: If you are interested in consulting or any business, this is one of the most useful classes you could possibly take. The material you develop in this class can be used as a portfolio piece and is also a great resume builder. To explain to a potential employer that you have developed something that earns consultants $5k-$10k is pretty impressive. This class will push you to be more creative and actually put that fancy UCLA education to good use. If you're like me and love projects, then this is the class for you. That being said, this class is not for the students who just want to memorize concepts and don't like applied work. Now, warnings of this class: - IT IS EXPENSIVE - IT IS A LOT OF WORK - THERE IS A GROUP PROJECT PLEASE do not take this class if you don't understand those things in the beginning. Professor Wright-Dixon will make those things abundantly clear for the first few weeks, but for some reason, there's always a few students who ignore her. What the class is: In this class, you will work in your group to develop 1. A Needs Assessment (Ours was 30 Pages) 2. A Training Manual (Ours was 179 Pages, Includes NA & PG) 3. A Participants Guide (Ours was 40 Pages) 4. A Presentation with Promo Pieces There is one midterm exam in the class and consists of multiple choice, matching, T/F, and short answer. Why is it expensive? - PRINTING - Promotional Pieces - The Presentation - Custom Binder The best thing to do: buy as much as you can early on so you don't spend hundreds of dollars in shipping. Why is the group project an issue? Let's be real, there's always at least one group member who slacks off and let's the rest of the team carry their weight. If you're that person, don't take this class. Pro: She does team evaluations where you anonymously give your team members a grade. Why is the work an issue? There is more work in this class than there are in your other comm classes, but I promise, IT IS NOT BUSY WORK. If you want to use your brain and develop something awesome, then great, take this class. Side note: my teammate was taking a total of 18 units, a research assistant, and still spent hours formatting and writing content and we had an awesome manual, NA, and PG. It's manageable, I promise. I should probably say something about Professor-Wright Dixon. So, she is my favorite professor, hands down. She spent so many hours outside of class working with my team and was always available for questions and to provide suggestions. Take her.
