Unknown macro: {Assignment 2}

Task Objectives
\begin

Unknown macro: {itemize}

\item To foster self-reflection on (a) the theory presented in the
course, and (b) your experience in running a firm whilst being part
of a management team.
\item To help with your sensemaking \parencite

regarding this course.
\end

\newthought{A casual search using Google Scholar for \emph{learning
journals}} provides a plethora of articles extolling their
virtues. Broadly, learning journals foster high quality
self-reflection and increase critical thinking. There are two
components to this assignment. First, you are to maintain a weekly
learning journal. Secondly, you are to use the your weekly journal as
the `data' for a summative journal/essay on your major learnings from
this course. This final part of the assignment is a summative
evaluation of your weekly journals.

\begin

\subsection

Unknown macro: {Notes on the learning journals}

\begin

Unknown macro: {itemize}

\item For many in the class, this is the first time they will have had
to undertake an reflective writing. As a result, some people will
approach this assignment with some trepidation. For those people,a
the article by \textcite

Unknown macro: {daudelin_learning_1996}

will provide
assistance. As you progress, you should find journaling increasingly
easy and natural. As a result, your later journals may be
considerably longer than your earlier ones. Because of this, there
is no upper word limit for your weekly journal entries. Indeed, you
may, if you like, do more than one entry per week\footnote

Unknown macro: {By the due date, one journal entry each week must be of at least the minimum word length. You may not do three 100 word journal entries in a week and hope for it to be treated like one 300-word journal entry.}

.
\item For your weekly journal entries, and for the summative journal,
using the first person (\emph

Unknown macro: {e.g.}

I, me, \emph

Unknown macro: {etc}

) is acceptable.
\item The quality of your writing matters. For instance, your weekly
learning journals will be on public display, and like much of the
Internet will be available---long after Bad Dog has been
deleted---through the Internet Archive\footnote{The \emph

Unknown macro: {Wayback Machine}

(\url

Unknown macro: {http}

) has been trawling the
Internet for decades making copies of what it finds there.}.
\item Although your weekly learning journal is not directly assessed,
it can affect your grade for this course.
\begin

\item Being late or missing a weekly journal entry will result in a
10-percent penalty being applied to your summative learning
journal\footnote

Unknown macro: {A snapshot of Bad Dog will be taken on each due date, and used to check that submissions were done.}

.
\item Failing to correctly cite/reference material in your journal
can incur a 10-percent penalty being applied to your summative
learning journal.
\end

Unknown macro: {itemize}

\item To help you improve your journaling, each week Peter will
provide commentary on a selection of the weekly journals.
\item You are strongly encouraged\footnote

Unknown macro: {If enough people provide high-quality comments, then the person who provides the best---in terms of quality and the number of commentaries---will get a five percent bonus.}

to read other peoples journals, and, when you
think you have something meaningful to say, to offer your own
commentary.
