Lecturer: Maria Mullin
Email: mmullin@studygroup.com (mailto:mmullin@studygroup.com)
Email is the best way to contact me. Please send a brief message regarding the issue and include the subject name and code in your email –it really helps to know which class you belong to, before I respond to your query.
The Faculty of Business is committed to staff engaging with their students and students receiving adequate support so that they have the best possible chance of succeeding in their studies. Therefore, students who are not completing assignments or sitting for tests or who are not engaging with the subject may be contacted by the subject coordinator to discuss their circumstances.
How you are expected to engage with the subject
HRM502 introduces the human resource management (HR) function to postgraduate students, with an emphasis on informed, practical application of HR concepts. The content of the subject is contained in the link, Topics, in the Interact2 site. There is a textbook and online readings that accompany the content. For students studying online at CSU, the textbook is provided in hard copy format only. This will be mailed to you.
This subject is taught using a continuous case centring on an authentic, but fictional, organisation, Civil Engineering & Research Associates (CERA). A website for the case study company is linked to the Interact2 site. Please get to know the material on this site as it will be used throughout the subject. The topics in the subject are integrated with HR scenarios arising in the company. You will be asked to prepare advice and recommendations to address these scenarios as part of the assessments.
There are three assessments in this subject, as follows:
- Assessment item 1 is a series of online journal posts, one for each topic, worth 30% in total;
- Assessment item 2 is a business report where you can select from three options. This is worth 30%; - Assessment item 3 is a role play activity worth 40% in total. This has two group tasks worth 15% each, and an individual task worth 10%.
A central feature in the design of the subject is a role play assessment that will be conducted towards the end of the session. You will be working in a group to support a series of strategic decisions that are made by the company. The role play will be conducted over four weeks as set out in the Schedule below, and you are expected to be available to undertake the assigned work in your group during this time. Groups will be formed in the early weeks of the session.
Timeframes for the group assessment task will be tight, so you must be available to participate in the role play over the four weeks that it is timetabled. Extensions are not available for this assessment. Please consider this before continuing your enrolment in the subject.
Studying HRM502 is fairly straightforward. Use the Schedule in this Subject Outline to guide your weekly study. There are six topics in the subject, which are completed in the first part of the session. Each topic begins with an HR scenario related to the topic that is facing the managers of CERA. The scenario calls for action. Each scenario is provided to you as a story vignette told from the viewpoint of the mangers in CERA and it ends at a crucial point where some action needs to be taken. This is where your work begins. To carry out the action, or to advise the company on what action it should take, relevant concepts are presented using the textbook and a selection of additional resources. You will be able to apply most, if not all, of the concepts that you will study in the topics to the assessment tasks. The content of HRM502, therefore, is selective and does not cover every aspect of every topic that is discussed in the textbook. If you would like to learn more about a topic beyond what’s covered in the online materials, use the textbook as a resource to do this; and as a resource to use later in your professional career journey.
For CSU online students, we will be working together using the tools available on the Interact2 site for HRM502. One of these tools in the Adobe Connect Online Meeting platform. We will be using this to meet regularly to discuss the assessment items. Meetings have been scheduled to coincide with the flow of assessment tasks so that we can discuss how to tackle these tasks in advance of their due dates. The Schedule below shows you the dates and times of these meetings and the purpose of each meeting. Attendance is strongly recommended as these meetings will convey essential information. Every meeting will be recorded, so you can watch back at your convenience.
To summarise, the best way to study this subject is to follow the Schedule in this Subject Outline and work through each topic in order, following the instructions provided. You should also refer to the CERA website. The online topics can be found in the link, Topics, in your Interact2 site for this subject. For CSU students taking this subject online, your textbook is provided in hard copy form only, by mail. Make notes as you work through each topic and then attempt the assessments. Attend and participate in the online meetings as scheduled, or watch the recordings if you’re unable to come along.

Marketing essentials

Understanding specific need in health and social care
Students who are new to CSU should do the free, self-paced subject, SSS032 Introduction to Learning Online. This subject gives you a great introduction to the online learning environment at CSU. It is practical and straightforward to work through. If you are new to study with CSU, you will find a link to this subject on your dashboard alongside the other subject/s that you are enrolled in.
Information on effective time management is available on the CSU Learning Skills website via the following link: student.csu.edu.au
Visit the Learning Skills website for advice about assignment preparation, academic reading and note taking, referencing, effective time management and preparing for exams at: student.csu.edu.au ( http://student.csu.edu.au/)

All of your subject materials are available on the Interact site under the Topics link in the left hand side menu.
I suggest that for each topic you read the learning objectives carefully, read the overview, have a quick skim of the text and attend the regular online meetings for a topic overview as well as chance to meet the lecturer. If you can't attend the meeting then watch the recording.
Once you have got a feel for what the topic is about try and make a good set of notes under each of the topic review questions in that topic. You can do this by watching the online meeting recording and consulting the text again in a more considered way.
As the session progresses start each study session with some time dedicated to revision. This will take a lot of stress off the exam because the memory likes to go over concepts a number of times. I will be holding regular online meetings throughout the session where we can discuss content issues and assessment items, details of times and dates will be posted on the Interact site. As part of your assessment in this subject you are required to work in a group to share and discuss news items about leadership issues. Continue to use the discussion board to share your thinking and ask questions.
Early participation activities
It is helpful to have a small task to complete early in the session, so that you have a focus in the subject from the very first day, and so I have set a discussion board task in the first week, as part of your assessment. If you don’t post on the discussion board in the first 2 weeks, I may contact you by phone or email to have a chat about study and if there are any issue that I can help with.
All of your subject materials are available on the Interact2 site under the various headers in the left hand side menu.
The first section is a general welcome, a -Before You Start- section and this tells you all about the Engagement & Expectations I would require of a student taking this subject. Then please read this Subject Outline in full.
The second section is the Subject Community. Here I will post important Announcements and you interact with your lecturer and other students through the various Discussion areas.
The Learning Content and Activities area will have the Topic Delivery Dates, the Topical Content, and links to assignments, My Grades, Evaluation and Resources. If you have bought an e-Textbook ( instead of a paper version), you may connect up at this location. You are expected to check this entire section weekly especially Topical Content.
Additional CSU Support content are links to other areas you may find useful for your study (eg. the Library).
I will be using automated system generated information by Interact2 to contact you by email. For example: if you have not logged in by the end of first week of session, you will get this email. It is to guide you along. However, no reminders are sent out for due dates for assignments as this are displayed clearly on the left hand tab.
You are expected to respond to all emails from the lecturer within three working days. For transparency and equity to all students, the lecturer will not join any private online discussion group in social media websites.
Information on effective time management is available on the CSU Learning Support website via the following link: student.csu.edu.au

Presentation
The following points are a general guide for presenting assessment items in this subject.
Assessment items should be typed.
Use 1.5 spacing.
Use a standard 12pt font such as Times New Roman, Calibri or Arial.
Left- justify body text.
Include a separate title page with your name, student number, subject code, and assessment number.
Number your pages (except the cover page).
Do not use footnotes, endnotes or appendices.
Use a header or footer with your name and student number on each page.
For work submitted through www.turnitin.com (http://www.turnitin.com) via either a Word file (Assessment item 2) or a voice over powerpoint file (VOPP) only (Assessment item 3).
Do not upload pdf, rtf or Pages files.
Always keep a copy of your assessments. Both a hard copy and an electronic copy. Most importantly, always use your spelling and grammar checker, but remember that this does not pick up all errors. You should still manually and carefully edit your work.
Submission
Online Submission
Assessment items that are completed within the Interact 2 site, such as quizzes, tests and self and peer assessments in the blog and wiki are noted in the assessment section above. You need to complete these tasks within your subject site.
Assessment tasks that are not completed through the Subject site need to be submitted electronically to the CSU Assignment Section via EASTS (Electronic Assignment Submission Tracking System). In order to access EASTS, click on the EASTS link in the menu bar on the left hand side in the Interact 2 site. This will take you to the EASTS site where you are provided with step-by-step instructions to guide you through the online submission process. EASTS has a help function that will allow you to print out instructions to assist you in this process if required.

[caption id="attachment_12516" align="alignleft" width="583"]HND Assignment Help HND Assignment Help[/caption]

A message will be sent to the email address, as recorded on the system under 'My Email', confirming the receipt of your assessment task via EASTS.
Assignments must be submitted by EASTS and are due by midnight (AEST) of the date specified.

Extensions
In order to ensure that other students who hand their assignments in on time are not disadvantaged, and to enable me to comply with the requirement to return assignments to the class within 15 working days, the following rules about extensions will be strictly enforced:
1. Extensions cannot be granted for on-line tests, as these have to be done within a specific time frame, after which the answers are released to the class automatically.
2. Computer problems (such as the speed of your computer and the time it may take you to upload assignments onto www.turnitin.com (http://www.turnitin.com) ) and normal work-related pressures and family commitments do not constitute sufficient reasons for the granting of extensions.
3. If it becomes obvious that you are not going to be able to submit an assignment on time because of an unavoidable problem, you must submit your request for an extension to the Subject Coordinator in writing (email is acceptable) prior to the due date.
Requests for extensions will not be granted on or after the due date so you must make sure that any extension is requested prior to the day on which the assignment is due.
urn
You are expected to do all you can to meet assignment deadlines. Work and family- related pressures do not normally constitute sufficient reasons for the granting of extensions or incomplete grades.
4. If you apply for an extension, you may be asked to email your lecturer on what you have done so far on the assignment.
5. You must be able to provide documentary evidence (such as a certificate from a doctor or counsellor) justifying the need for an extension as soon as practicable - but please note that if the circumstances giving rise to the request for an extension arise on a day when you cannot get documentary evidence, you must still apply for the extension before the due date and submit the documentary evidence afterwards.
6. Given the tight deadlines involved in returning assignments to students and putting feedback on Interact, the maximum extension granted generally will be seven (7) days from the due date.
7. Assignments received more than 10 days after the due date or extension date will not be marked unless the staff member decides otherwise. Items received late will be penalised at 10% of the mark available for the assessment item per day it is late (see below).
8. Note that for purposes of measuring lateness, the 'day' begins just after 00.00 hrs AEST - so an assignment received after midnight of the due date will be penalised 10% for lateness. This rule will be applied to all students uniformly.
Penalties for Late Submission
The Faculty of Business has determined that the penalty for the late submission of an assessment task ( without obtaining the Subject Coordinator's approval for an extension) will be :
10% deduction per day, including weekends, of the maximum marks allocated for the assessment task, i.e. 1 day late 10% deduction, or 2 days late 20% deduction.
An example of the calculation would be:
Maximum marks allocated = 20
Penalty for one day late = 2 marks (so, a score of 18/20 becomes 16/20 and a score of 12/20 becomes 10/20).
If an assignment is due on a Friday but is not submitted until the following Tuesday, then the penalty will be four days (40% deduction or 8 marks in the example above).
Submissions more than 10 days late will be acknowledged as received but will not be marked.
Assignment Return
You should normally expect your marked assignment to be returned to you within the timeframe shown in the assessments summary table above, if your assignment was submitted on time. If you submitted your assignment on time but not received it back by the return date, you should make enquiries in the first instance to the subject coordinator.
Resubmission

Theories and concept of human development and behavior

Applying promotional techniques
Under normal circumstances resubmission of assessment items will not be accepted for any of the assessments required in this subject.
Assessment Requirements
Assessment at CSU is criterion-referenced and standards-based where students' work is assessed against stated criteria that reflect the expected learning outcomes of the course and subject. Subjects that use a satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading scale will have this clearly identified within the Subject Outline.
For further information please consult the University's Assessment Policy: Coursework Subjects ( https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id =00301).
Referencing
Referencing is an important component of academic writing. All CSU assessment tasks should be appropriately referenced. The specific details of the referencing requirements are included in each assessment task description.
For further information and assistance with referencing refer to http://student.csu.edu.au/library/integrity/referencing-at-csu
Plagiarism
Charles Sturt University expects that the work of its students and staff will uphold the values of academic honesty and integrity. The Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism is located at:
http://student.csu.edu.au/study/plagiarism. This is an important resource that will help you understand these values and apply them in practice. You should familiarise yourself with these requirements and ensure that all assessments submitted by you are your own work, have not been submitted elsewhere and comply with the University's requirements for academic integrity.
The University has purchased Turnitin software. This software has two functions, a pre-emptive education function which students may use to check their own work prior to submission, and a plagiarism detection function which academics may use to check the student’s work for improper citation or potential plagiarism. Use by students is optional and is not a prerequisite for submission.
You are encouraged to check your work for originality prior to submission. You can register with Turnitin to create a Student Account under the CSU Turnitin Licence at http://www.turnitin.com/login_page.asp. Further information on how to use Turnitin is provided within the Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism: http://student.csu.edu.au/study/plagiarism/checking.

University Policies and Regulations

Understanding specific need in health and social care

Unit 6 Research project
Academic matters are defined by, and are subject to, Charles Sturt University policies and regulations. Your Subject Outline should be read in conjunction with all such academic regulations and policies, as some of these may affect the outcome of your studies.
Academic Progress Regulations
The University requires each student to progress through his or her course at a rate that will enable him or her to complete the course in a specified maximum time. This maximum time is intended to ensure the currency of the knowledge within the course and therefore professional suitability of graduates. Failure to complete within the specified maximum time shall lead to the expiry of a student?s enrolment in the course. The University believes that all students have a right to know in advance of study in their course exactly what constitutes satisfactory progress in that course. To this end the University will specify a maximum completion time for each course, and will also provide support to students identified as being at risk of exclusion.
The Academic Progress Policy (https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00250) sets out the requirements and procedures for satisfactory academic progress, for the exclusion of students who fail to progress satisfactorily and for the termination of enrolment for students who fail to complete in the maximum allowed time.
Variations to Subject Outlines
Should it be necessary to change the content of the Subject Outline during a teaching session, it will be done in consultation with the Head of School and other support services of the University. You then will be notified of the changes in writing by the subject coordinator.
Variations to Assessment
Should it be necessary to vary the assessment in this subject, you will be notified in writing by the Subject Coordinator, or Subject Convenor where one is appointed. The variations to assessment include variations to the assessment tasks and/or assessment procedures for assignments, examinations and any other assessment task published in the Subject Outline. The variations will be communicated only after the Subject Coordinator or Subject Convenor has obtained approval from their Head of School. The overriding principle is that such changes will not disadvantage students and is made in accordance with the Subject Outlines Policy (https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00267).
Evaluation of Subjects
