Length: A portfolio with 3 pages for the 3 different weeks as listed above. A page contains 500 words (± 10%) for each week (not including references and citations)
Your portfolio should capture rich ideas, resources and innovative practice around Business Process Management around the context of the specified topics. Topics include: Business Process Strategy & Organisational Processes and Structure; Business Process Performance Management & Business Process Management; and Business Process Analysis & Business Process Modelling.
To develop and write a well-informed ePortfolio, you are to conduct an Internet research on the specified ePortfolio topics. Search for items related to each ePortfolio topic. The items you may include in the portfolio could be YouTube videos, clips from lectures and/or tutorials, articles, interesting readings, relevant websites and your own work that you produce in the tutorials. You should review the items you find around the specified topics. Select a minimum of 5 items for each week to add to the relevant portfolio page. To start, you need to create a portfolio with 3 pages (i.e. 1 page for each of the weekly topic as listed above) on Mahara. Each page should contain 5 items with a justification for each item.
In each justification, firstly provide a brief summary of the chosen item and secondly outline why you chose the item i.e. why you thought the item chosen was appropriate and relevant to the topic. Your justification for each item should be around 100 words (100 words for each item * 5 items = 500 words on each page).
Do not upload files obtained from the Internet to your Mahara ePortfolio webpage as you do not own the copyrights. If you do upload files without permission, this will be treated as plagiarism. You should provide hyperlinks to the files/webpages you refer to in your discussion.
In this assessment, Harvard referencing format is to be used to develop your citations that substantiate your justifications. Refer to this guide for help with Harvard referencing.
You will use Mahara (CQU Portfolio) to gather and present each weekly portfolio.
The weekly portfolio is to be submitted by creating a Secret URL in Mahara and pasting the URL into Moodle for marking and feedback.
Details about how to create the Secret URL are on the COIT 20252 Moodle unit site.
Note: Unfortunately, Mahara has not been fully integrated with Moodle, and therefore we will use Moodle to send you feedback on the marking. We will be using the CQU Portfolio in the Business Analysis unit that follows this one. You might want to consider gathering items into your portfolio that you can use in future. You can store items in your portfolio that are not shared with anyone or share a particular view with a specific group. In this way, you can build up many different views for many different purposes. It is a common practice for people to build a portfolio to share with prospective employers, which is one use of your portfolio. So, please remain objective in your evaluation of items you collect.
As Mahara is only available to you while studying at CQUni, you can export your portfolio when you have finished your studies or transfer it to one of many free portfolios.
The use of any assignment writing services or getting someone else to do your work is contract cheating, which is considered academic dishonesty. All assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or material copied from other sources) using Turn-It-In.
If you are found to have plagiarised or copied material without acknowledging the authors or engaged in any form of contract cheating or have uploaded files without permission, you will be penalised for plagiarism which could result in zero marks for the whole assignment. In some circumstances of violations of academic integrity, a more severe penalty may be imposed as per University policy.
