• ES integration within and across organizational boundaries
Each team is expected to present their report findings to as part of the “Team Report Presentation” assessment task during week 10.
You are reminded to read the “Plagiarism” section of the course description. Your essay should be a synthesis of ideas from a variety of sources expressed in your own words.
All reports must use the APA referencing style.
University Referencing/Citation Style Guide:
The University has published a style guide to help students correctly reference and cite information they use in assignments (American Psychological Association (APA) citation style,
http://www.ballarat.edu.au/aasp/student/learning_support/generalguide/print/ch06s04.shtml or Australian citation style
Reports are to be presented in hard copy in size 12 Arial Font and double spaced. Your report should include a list of references used in the essay and a bibliography of the wider reading you have done to familiarize yourself on the topic.
Report Submission: Hard-copy to tutors/lecturers assignment box in week 11. Double-sided printing for the hard-copy is encouraged in order to save paper. Declaration should be done to declare how much (percentage) each of the team has contributed to the report.
A passing grade will be awarded to assignments adequately addressing all assessment criteria. Higher grades require better quality and more effort. For example, a minimum is set on the wider reading required. A student reading vastly more than this minimum will be better prepared to discuss the issues in depth and consequently their report is likely to be of a higher quality. So before submitting, please read through the assessment criteria very carefully.
