You are required to develop and upload a reflective presentation.
Given the current situation with the university closed for face-to-face teaching, it has been necessary to make some adjustments to assessment brief AE2 requirements.
In line with the learning outcomes of the validated unit descriptor, you will be required to present and record your individual presentation using Panopto or similar recording software, however, we STRONGLY recommend that you use Panopto.
The purpose of the presentation is to report back on progress on your SMART objectives identified in the first assessment on this unit, based on results from your ‘ESE’ or ‘Future Me’ tests.
In addition the presentation will require the development of presentation and digital skills, and improve confidence in expressing ideas and recording using Panopto. You can choose to use Power point, Prezi or a Poster Presentation.
You are required to present your progress by
·explaining each of the your identified areas for development
·what progress you have made towards achieving each objective
·any problems encountered and how you overcame them
·what you have learned during the process
·how this will support your future employability in line with what employers are looking for
·where you will go from here
·underpin with related theory you have applied and used to critically evaluate your development objectives and current outcomes – you must include your reference list as your last slide
You will deliver the presentation during your normal seminar time, at a time agreed with your tutor.
Note that regardless of any of the above test type used in the AE1 assessment, now students aren’t required to repeat the test for the AE2 assessment. E.g. where you were expected to reflect on progress by comparing two test results, now it will be required to reflect on what students have done to improve their objectives without repeating the tests in AE2 assessment.
All students are required to:
1)Record and leave your presentations in the given Panopto Folder by searching through the given ‘Browse’ icon on the left hand side bar (QHO312_6593017713) or directly accessing through above URL link.
2)upload your original presentations i.e. without video recording on their AE2 submission link on Moodle under Assessment Tab for the purpose of assessment / feedback and Turnitin similarity check
3)Save your video as: Student ID + Full name including surname
Students often lose marks for forgetting some of the more straightforward elements of their assignments. We recommend that you “tick off” each of the points below as you prepare your work for submission. If you need any help, ask your seminar tutor or unit leader.
oHave you read and understood the assessment criteria?
oHave you met the Assessment Criteria? You will lose marks and your work may even be failed if you have not. (The Assessment Criteria is detailed in the grid attached to the Assessment Brief).
oHave you demonstrated that you can write critically? Show you have supported your arguments using academic literature; you have presented ideas and information which challenges thinking, and you have offered discussion points which extends your own or others’ viewpoints.
oHave you maintained an academic tone throughout your work? Have you tried to avoid using the same words over and over again?
oHave you checked that the referencing/bibliography in your assignment is in line with the Harvard Referencing system used by SSU.
oHave you proof-read your work and used spellcheck software to check your spelling and grammar?
oHave you presented your work in a professional way? Your work should be formatted logically and consistently. Text in different fonts and of differing sizes often indicates copy and pasting. Spacing of headings and paragraphs should be consistent. Page numbering is useful and a contents page is essential if appendices have been included in your work.
oCan you confirm that the work submitted is your own and not plagiarised?
oIt is useful to “grade” your work before submission. This gives you an indication of the grade you think your work merits. When your assessment has been marked you will be able to compare your grade and use your feedback more effectively to develop your academic work and improve your future grades.
This assessment will enable students to demonstrate in full or in part the learning outcomes identified in the unit descriptors.
Students are reminded that:
