How much of a threat does this non-state actor actually pose to your chosen nation-state, taking everything into consideration? Is the threat successful at exerting its influence? Is the nation-state’s response effective or ineffective?



In a group process, identify an emerging public safety ethical trend or organizational ethical issue and present the issue in a PowerPoint presentation posted to your Group Discussion area. Groups will be assigned by your instructor during week 2 of the course. As a group, conduct research into your issue and incorporate the results of your research, including high quality references, into your presentation.

The Ethical Issue Presentation shall cover all of the following topics:

  • Presentation and discussion of academic and anecdotal resource materials
  • Deconstruction of current public safety ethical issues related to your topic
  • Discussion of the results of your group research into public safety ethical issues related to your topic, including high quality references
  • Identification of acceptable and effective professional  public safety ethical principles related to your topic, including possible best practices
  • Include references on separate slide, in proper APA format

The Group Project is worth 100 points and is 20% of your final grade. Each group shall prepare a PowerPoint presentation. The presentation should be 10 to 15 slides in length, excluding table of contents, graphics and tables, and references. Be sure to include references to support your presentation. In the following descending order of preference, information sources must be either peer-reviewed articles, government reports, or other sources approved by your instructor. Internet information sources from other than authoritative sources are discouraged. See the Group PowerPoint Project Rubric grading rubric for more information.

Each group member must also complete an evaluation that will factor into the grade provided for the “group member evaluation” portion shown in the table above.  Each group member may not get the same grade as the group member evaluation portion will be determined by other group members.  These evaluations will be kept confidential.  Not submitting group evaluation form, or submitting them late will result in a late penalty. The form is available in the Course at a Glance > PSAD 414 Group Participation Form.

Technology and Citizen Participation


Technology and Citizen Participation 

What effects do the new technologies (e.g., smartphones, computers, tablets, social media) have on citizen participation? Based on your own direct experience (please provide a few examples from your own experience) and current research, how do these new technologies facilitate citizen participation? Also based on your own direct experience (again, please provide examples) and the current research, how do they hinder citizen participation? What policies might you develop to enhance citizen participation in the digital age? (Note: 40-50% of this paper should be your narration of your own direct experiences with how new technologies have influenced your participation in government. If you do not have sufficient examples from your own experience, please interview friends or colleagues and recount their direct experiences.)

All written material needs to be submitted in American Psychological Association (APA) format. The Web site Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) is an excellent source for information. You are expected to review this site and follow the format for in-text/parenthetical sourcing of your references in your papers. For writing support, here are a few resources: The College Writing Center, The University Writing Center and the University Graduate Writing Center.

The required format for your Course Papers and Final Paper is: double-spaced, 1 inch margins, Times New Roman 12 font—with appropriate research and sources to back up your findings and conclusions (as indicated below, all citations in this course should use the APA style) that “ground” your creative idea(s) in current research and thinking. Each of your Course Papers and your Final Paper should specify your research question and have a brief introduction and conclusion (but not an abstract). Include your name and the page number in the header on each page (for an example, see the header on this page). For each paper, please include a title page displaying the title and your identifying information. The title page does not count toward the page length requirement. Additional paper requirements are indicated in the Taxonomy of Writing Codes that you will find in Important Course Documents.

The only citations that count in your two course papers and your final paper are citations from unique sources that do not include the course textbook or any required articles in the course syllabus. For papers that may involve interviews, you should reference who your interviewees are (you can use fictitious names) in the text and should not include them as citations (interviews do not count as citations). Consider the course textbook and required/recommended articles as introductions to the subject of study that invite you to go further and refine your research abilities by discovering other sources. Each of your Course Papers must be 2 pages (including bibliography)—including a minimum of 2 citations from unique sources. Your Final Paper must be 3 pages (including bibliography)—including a minimum of 3 citations from unique sources. If the page length of your paper is below or above the required length, your grade for the paper will be reduced by an additional 1 point (out of 3). You should put your references immediately below the end of your paper rather than on a separate page. Similarly, if the number of citations from unique sources that do not include the course textbook or any articles in the course syllabus in your paper is below the minimum, your grade for the paper will be reduced by an additional 1 point. Each of your papers will be given a grade from 1 point (lowest) to 3 points (highest).

Debriefing And Progress Report

Page 1 of 2

ASSE 2111: Learning Outcome Assessment 1

Instructor: Dr. Adam Hefty

Debriefing and Progress Report, Part 1: Plan


Students will develop plans, self-assess on a regular basis, and evaluate their success or lack


The first part of the assignment consists of developing a plan for the semester in consultation

with the instructor.


Start by looking at your schedule for the semester.

You will write 10-15 full and thoughtful sentences about your academic plan for the

semester. You should deal with the following issues. Note: you must address the three

(numbered) main points, but you do not have to address all of the (lettered) sub-points. They

are meant to provoke your thinking.

1. Give an overview of what your semester is like. How many hours do you have? Do you think it will be a hard or easy semester, and why? What is new for you this

semester? (2-4 sentences)

2. What are your challenges for the semester? (2-4 sentences) Consider the following questions:

a. Which course do you believe will be your most difficult course, and why? What will be difficult about it? What can you do to meet those challenges?

b. What is one thing you need to focus on this semester? (It could be a course, a week of the semester you know will be busy, a study habit, a time

management issue, etc.)

3. What is your goal for the semester? (4-8 sentences) Consider the following points and address some of them:

a. Explain why this goal is important to you. Be specific, and describe it in light of your overall goals as a PMU student.

b. Self-assess your own goal. Is this goal realistic? Why or why not? What obstacles do you think you may face? Which obstacles are in your control and

which are not?

c. Consider anything going on in your life outside of classes and/or outside of PMU if appropriate.

d. What resources do you need to succeed, in order to reach your goal or come as close as possible? Are those resources available to you now? What could you

do to access them, if not?

e. If you need access to resources you don’t have or don’t know how to reach your goals, who do you think you could ask?

Page 2 of 2

f. Have your ideas about your goals changed as a result of writing about them?

Note: “I want to get an A+ in all my courses” is not a meaningful goal. It does not show

anything specific about your particular goals or challenges as a student. Answers of this sort

will lose a point. You may mention grades as part of your goal, but they should be a small

part of the bigger picture.

Length and formatting: 10-15 full and thoughtful sentences, using Times New Roman, 12

point font, with 1-inch margins. You may use paragraphs or simply answer 1), 2) and 3) in

full and thoughtful sentences.

File must be submitted as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file.


If you want some help thinking about your challenges for the semester and your plan, you

may schedule an optional meeting with the instructor. If you wish to schedule a meeting,

please get in contact via email before the end of week 2. We will schedule a meeting before

Tuesday of week 3.

You do not gain or lose points for the meeting; it is meant to be an additional tool to help you

think through your plan and challenges.
