  • How many journal articles are required for Assignment 1? Please see the Marking Rubrics for this assignment: slide 13 (Program Design and Implementation) and slide 19 (evaluation). I strongly advise you to KEEP IT SIMPLE and don’t use too many Remember: you need to ‘discuss’ the issues regarding your HRD intervention using your own words, clearly linked to the issues raised in the case study, and use some references to support your discussion/points.
  • Can you use any of the readings included in the Study Guide? Yes, you can. You can use any readings included in the Study Guide and also in the PowerPoint presentations.
  • Use the Harvard referencing guide used in the School of Business and Tourism. Note: if you use one of the suggested eReadings, the first page of each topic in the Study Guide lists all the eReadings for that particular topic, with the correct referencing format.
  • Avoid using references from the internet (Wikipedia, google, blogs) and do not rely too much on the textbook/study guide – it limits your research capabilities and your critical analysis. Remember that he marking rubric will assess your ability to use empirical research and journal articles to argue for and support your case
