Human resource management in context

In this module you will examine how HR policies and practices operate within multiple tiers and manifestations of economic, political and social context - at macro (societal and international) and micro (organisational) levels.

60-Second Adventures in Economics

Ever shaken an invisible hand? Been flattened by a falling market? Or wondered what took the bend out of Phillips' curve?

Leadership: external context and culture

Through studying this free course, Leadership: external context and culture, you will develop your understanding of the impact of external context and culture on the practice of leadership.

Science and society: A career and professional development course

Scientists throughout the world are increasingly interested in the relationship between science and society.

That raises important issues to do with the ethical and social dimension of scientists' work and how scientists explain and perhaps justify their work to the wider public. Science and society: A career and professional development course, is a free course that explores this further.
