MGMT 310
Creating Social Impact through Collaborative Project Management:

Experiential Learning
Spring 2016

In collaboration with KUSIF (Koç University Social Impact Forum)
Instructor: Gonca Ongan (gongan@ku.edu.tr) – Agata Fortuna (afortuna@ku.edu.tr) co-teaching

Course schedule: Monday-Wednesday 10:00-11:15 STDB228H

Aims: This course aims at teaching students necessary knowledge, skills and competencies to be able design and write project proposals that have potential to make positive social impact for sustainable development in the world. The primary aim of the course is to make students familiar with tools used while developing a social project, writing a project proposal and project cycle management.

The deliverable of the course is to produce the “Theory of Change” of a social impact actor; a social enterprise, a social responsibility project of a business or a civil societal organization; in collaboration with the members of these institutions. The students are expected to understand and grasp fully the project and come up with a useful “Theory of Change” that will be beneficial for these actors. This kind of an endeavor will necessitate visits to CSOs and will need a thorough knowledge of the social problem in question, as well as the context that the project is going to operate in.

The specific course objectives are as follows:

  1. Gain understanding of the critical phases involved in Theory of Change and Project Cycle Management.

  2. Develop skills and competencies to develop and write an applied project geared towards creating social impact through Theory of Change method.

  3. Understand ethical and methodological issues involved in project development, implementation, and measurement.

  4. Experiencing various approaches that social impact actors adopt while tackling social problems

Approach & Methods:

We adopt the ‘active learning’ and ‘experiential learning’ methods in this course. This implies that: (1) learning is a shared responsibility between the instructor and students, (2) learning is mutual – everyone engaged in this class (e.g., instructor, students, guest speakers) will learn from each other, and (3) learning is experiential – that is, learning is enhanced through practicing the knowledge.

Requirements & Evaluation

Participation in class discussions: 20 % This course encourages critical thinking and discussions. You are expected to raise questions or concerns about the topics covered - please don’t be shy and actively engage in the class. Remember, our learning may be enhanced by your questions or comments! Your participation in class discussions will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Quality of your participation: Bringing new and interesting perspectives to the attention of the class; giving relevant and interesting examples (preferably from your own experiences); questioning and challenging the course materials or HRM practices that are explained in case presentations.




  1. Quantity of your participation: Participating as much as possible, but not dominating the class discussions. To give everyone a fair chance of participation, the instructor reserves the right to allow someone else, instead of you, to talk or to ask to wrap up your point if it is too lengthy.




  1. Quality of your listening: Listening attentively; not talking with each other during lectures and case presentations.



  1. Manner of discussion: Making constructive criticisms; expressing your disagreements in a respectful manner; not being argumentative or cynical; not trying to be the ‘winner’ of the discussion; being able to say ‘you are right; I was wrong’ or ‘good point; I haven’t thought about it myself’.

Pop-quizzes will be counted towards your class participation. I will also take attendance when we have guest speakers and work sessions with social impact actors.

Mid-Terms: 20 %
Final: 25 %
Small Assignments: 15%
Presentations: 20 % (7.5% each for 2 class presentations and 5% for the final presentation during the social impact project bazaar with stakeholders.) We will have two in class presentations and one social impact project bazaar.
Academic Honesty

Honesty and trust are important to all of us as individuals. Students and faculty adhere to the following principles of academic honesty at Koc University.

1. Individual accountability for all individual work, written or oral. Copying from others or providing answers or information, written or oral, to others is cheating.

2. Proper acknowledgment of original author. Copying from another student's paper or from another text without written acknowledgment is plagiarism.

3. Student or project group activity is effective and authorized teamwork. Unauthorized help from another person or having someone else write one's paper or assignment is collusion.

Cheating, plagiarism, and collusion are serious offenses resulting in an F grade and discipline action. Honesty and trust are the most important values to Koc University students and faculty. This instructor enforces Koc University regulations concerning academic integrity to its fullest extent. Cheating, plagiarism, and collusion are NOT to be tolerated. If you have any questions regarding the scope of any of these offenses, please do not hesitate to consult me. I would also like to attract your attention to the following unacceptable behavior: extensive quoting (exceeding max. of one page) even if you cite the reference, submitting the same or similar paper or project as you prepare (d) for another course this semester or in previous years, submitting the same or similar paper or project that was prepared by someone else in previous years. If academic honesty of a group member is questioned, all group members will be affected by the incident to the same extent. Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that members in your team adhere to the above rules.
