In 2011, a decision was made by the WMU College of Education and Human Development to move the Human Resource Development (HRD) program out of the Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology (CECP) department and into the Educational Leadership, Research, & Technology (ELRT) department. Upon migrating into ELRT, HRD was renamed Organizational Learning and Performance (OLP). The OLP program prepares students to transform their workplace through the use of innovative learning technologies.

The ELRT department is also home to the Educational Technology (EDT) unit. This program prepares learning professionals with specialized knowledge and competencies required to train and coach others in the instructional use and management of technology in a variety of settings.

This poster describes a recent initiative to identify opportunities for cooperation between the OLP and EDT programs with the possibility of merging the two into a new, larger program.


This poster was presented at the Teaching and Learning Bash on September 17, 2015 at Western Michigan University. NAME was part of the 2014-15 Academic Leadership Academy cohort.
