resit assessment brief
An individual PowerPoint presentation, with written script, outlining your response to a case study in the form of a proposed HRD strategy and associated plans.
Proposed presentation structure:
· An introduction to the presentation
· An outline of existing HRD&KM related processes and practices found within the case study
· An analysis of HRD&KM challenges or problems identified within the case study
· A proposed and justified new HRD strategy for the case study organisation that could help rectify the challenges previously identified
· An implementation/recommendations plan for the new HRD strategy
The case study for this presentation will be made available on Blackboard.
There are lots of materials to support your development of this presentation in the study units on Blackboard.
The following criteria will be used in evaluating this assessment:
Your presentation must be presented as follows:
· Regarding visually, you must use Microsoft PowerPoint to present your key points and a copy of your slides must be provided. Please make sure your slides are professionally presented.
· You should add notes, within the notes section, underneath each slide. This is to enable you to elaborate the key points made on each slide, as if you were going to deliver it.
· Your slides must include citations, where applicable, and a full reference list must be provided at the end of your presentation.
· A copy of your slides, with your typed notes, must be submitted via Blackboard.
Excluding the full reference list at the end, individual presentations must be completed within a maximum of 10 slides and your additional notes must be completed within a maximum of 1500 words, for the whole presentation.
There is no direct penalty for exceeding the maximum number of slides or exceeding the maximum word limit for the notes, but the assessor will stop marking once the maximum has been reached.
Please adhere to the principles of good academic practice and ensure you reference all sources used when developing your assessment, using the UWE Harvard system. Failure to properly reference your work to original source material can be grounds for the assessment offence of plagiarism and may result in failure of the assessment or have more serious implications.
