Tutorial acrivites start in week 1. This is an ongoing assessment item that will be marked weekly. Students are expected to participate in weekly workshop activites (27 marks in total). One of these workshop activites involves a news report whereby students are required to find three news items that illustrate the theoretical perspectives discussed in modules 1 to 3. Students will provide an oral introduction to these items and submit a written report summarising their findings (15 marks). Other workshop activites require students to prepare answers to questions about case studies relevant to employment relations in groups and individually (12 marks).
Criteria & Marking:
Full details of the assessment criteria for each item will be posted on the course Learning@Griffith website prior to week 1.
1. All assignments submitted for grading must be word processed. Students must be able to produce an electronic copy of all work submitted, and be able to resubmit if requested by the Convenor. Students are expected to retain copies of all assessment items submitted until a final grade for the course has been awarded. Creating a backup of all your computer files is highly recommended.
2. Assignments received by fax, e-mail, or any other form other than hard copy (unless specifically advised by the course convenor) will NOT be accepted. Refer to "Unit" Section on Late Submission Assignments
3. SafeAssign is an online text-matching service available through the course Learning@Griffith site. It enables students to submit electronic versions of their assignments via the internet, and generate a text-matching report. This service is designed to aid in educating students about plagiarism and the importance or proper attribution of any borrowed content. It is recommended that all students utilise this service prior to submitting a hard copy of their assignments. A student user guide is available at the following site:
4. Citation and referencing format should conform to the GBS guidelines both in the body of your paper and its attached reference section. Please check with your convenor to confirm the required style (ie. APA (American Psychological Association) or Harvard) and refer to the GBS Resource Bank for correct referencing format.
