cross-references the blog (written) Reflective report: While the blog

Assessment Title Blog and Learning Reflections ________________________________________ Task Description This is an INDIVIDUAL assessment: 1. Reflective report, which details your learning journey and explicitly cross-references the blog (written) Reflective report: While the blog is built throughout the term, the reflective report is to be developed towards the end of the term, as it requires you to present a critical self-analysis and reflection of your learningas a result of experiencing Design Thinking and entrepreneurial activity within this unit. The self-analysis and reflection must consider your personal development, as well as the development of your knowledge of Design Thinking and entrepreneurship topics. As a conclusion, students are to develop an action plan of key events and activities that they can undertake over the next 6 months to acquire any knowledge, skills and behaviours identified as requiring development. The reflective report should be submitted as a Word document with a length of 2,500 words, excluding preliminaries, tables, figures and references. Your reflective report must make reference to appropriate academic literature and theory in a critical way. Moreover, the report it MUST make explicit reference to appropriate evidence in your blog using a clear cross-reference system. The reflective report must make use of at least 15 high-quality references (APA style). ________________________________________ Assessment Due Date Week 12 Thursday (5 Oct 2017) 10.00 pm AEST ________________________________________ Return Date to Students Results and feedback will be available in Moodle on certification date. ________________________________________ Weighting 30% ________________________________________ Assessment Criteria • Demonstrate clear cross-referencing between reflective report and evidence from the blog.(Cross-referencing: To get the really high marks here, you need to submit your (minimum of 12) blog entries AND you need to refer to your blog in your report. This is what we call ‘cross-referencing’ – it is very easy to do, e.g. you might write the following in your report: “Initially, I thought the unit would be very similar to MGMT20132 and I would have to quickly find an innovation to propose (see blog #1; 10th July 2017), but later on, when we carried out an activity called ‘making desserts’ (see blog #13, 01st September 2017), I realised I had to spend more time exploring the problem first.” The text in BLUE is a cross-reference to the blog.) • Ability to present a candid and critical self-reflection of knowledge and personal development resulting from experiencing Design Thinking and entrepreneurial activity • Ability to analyse self-reflection to identify personal strengths, weaknesses, and areas in need of development • Ability to devise an action plan, supported by literature, that addresses key development needs • Demonstrate a breadth and quality of research by using a minimum of 15 high-quality sources • Correct use of the APA referencing system • Contribution to the group in assessment 2 as evaluated by yourself and your group members (Self- and Peer-Assessment) See Moodle for more detailed assessment rubric. Late submission and academic misconduct penalties apply as per the university regulations. As Masters students you are required to engage in research as per the Australia Quality Framework (AQF) guidelines. Two specific requirements need to be considered. Students need to demonstrate “a body of knowledge that includes the understanding of recent developments in a discipline and/or area of professional practice, and demonstrate “knowledge of research principles and methods applicable to a field of work and/or learning”. Each unit in the Postgraduate course has a number of required weekly readings in terms of academic texts, journals and business publications that represent the appropriate body of knowledge and recent developments referred to by the AQF. In order to demonstrate the ability to engage in appropriate research, students should read and utilise these texts and journals and publications, and as Masters students, indicate a willingness to research beyond this minimum standard through additional texts, journals and studies that demonstrate an ability to engage in independent research. Students should insure that they understand the specific research that is required for each assessment piece and recognise that if they meet this minimum requirement, you will receive the minimum grade for demonstrated research. Your attention is drawn to the University’s stated position on plagiarism. THE WORK OF OTHERS, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE ASSIGNMENT MUST BE ATTRIBUTED TO ITS SOURCE (a full list of references must be submitted as part of the assessment). ________________________________________ Referencing Style • American Psychological Association (APA) ________________________________________ Submission Online ________________________________________ Submission Instructions Word document (reflective report) INCLUDING web link to your blog via Moodle; SPA questionnaire to be filled in online by the given deadline ________________________________________ Learning Outcomes Assessed • Develop ideas for new designs and innovations in social, service, commercial and digital contexts using design thinking. • Discuss and apply design methodology for prototyping your ideas. • Incubate solutions for your innovation ideas for social, service, commercial and digital contexts. • Work collaboratively in groups to design an example of your innovation for social, service, digital and commercial contexts. ________________________________________ Graduate Attributes • Knowledge • Communication • Cognitive, technical and creative skills • Research • Self-management • Ethical and Professional Responsibility • Leadership
