Additional Information
This assessment item involves researching your assigned topic to enhance your understanding of the relevant human resource issues and utilisation of academic literature.
The prescribed textbook for the Unit MUST be cited. You will be expected to present information and evidence from, and cite, relevant academic peer reviewed journal articles. You must undertake research more broadly than articles posted on Moodle. The MINIMUM TO PASS this criterion [12.5/25] is the textbook (must draw on at least three chapters), plus six (6) relevant academic peer reviewed journal articles.
A reference list is compulsory and it MUST be prepared according to the CQU APA Referencing Guide. DO NOT include a bibliography.
The quality and number of citations will demonstrate the breadth and depth of the literature used to formulate your argument. It is not only about the number of references, but also it is about the relevance and quality of the articles, and then how you use the content from your research. You can cite the textbook, and any of your journal articles more than once as appropriate to develop your argument.
Keep your key research from 2014 onwards, unless you are using the primary source articles of theories and/or models. You may need to have additional material from pre 2014 to fully explore the topic and obtain material. You also will need to obtain material from appropriate resources that evidences the practical application of your discussion. This may include material from industry sources.
Your marker is interested in the argument and critical analysis that you have developed from YOUR review of the literature and how well you use the literature to respond to the topic. There should be minimal use, if any, of direct quotes, and you should be paraphrasing. The in text referencing must be appropriate and sufficient in each paragraph and throughout the report.
