TBS 803 Subject Outline Trimester 3, 2015 Page 1 of 16 Email Etiquette: Consultation with your subject coordinator and/or teachers via email Your teachers receive many emails each day. In order to enable them to respond to your emails appropriately and in a timely fashion, students are asked to observe basic requirements of professional communication: Consider what the communication is about 0 Is your question addressed elsewhere (e.g. in this subject outline or, where applicable, on the subject's eLearning site)? 0 Is it something that is better discussed in person or by telephone? This may be the case if your query requires a lengthy response or a dialogue in order to address. If so, see consultation times above and/or schedule an appointment. 0 Are you addressing your request to the most appropriate person? Specific email title/header to enable easy identification of subject related/student emails 0 Identify the subject code of the subject you are enquiring about (as your teacher may be involved in more than one subject) in the email header. Add a brief, specific header after the subject code where appropriate. Professional courtesy Address your teacher appropriately by name (and formal title if you do not yet know them). Use full words (avoid ‘text-speak‘ abbreviations), correct grammar and correct spelling. Be respectful and courteous. Academics will normally respond within 1-2 days. If the matter is urgent, you may wish to telephone the Teaching Staff whose contact details are given in this subject outline or contact the School. 0 Please ensure that you include your full name and identify your seminar or tutorial group in your email so that your teachers know who they are communicating with and can follow—up personally where appropriate. A guide to eLearning ‘Netiquette‘ is available at http:[/ . The basic principles of Netiquette also apply to email communication.

The subject covers the history and contemporary analysis of management theory and concepts relating to: individual, group and organisational processes within business contexts. This subject enhances student‘s fundamental knowledge and learning skills in problem solving and decision making required to successfully engage with and complete further subjects within their postgraduate management degree. This subject also develops students‘ communication and teamwork skills and application of knowledge to analyse, consolidate and synthesise complex information. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES l. Analyse the fundamental theories, concepts and models about organisational behaviour and management. 2. Apply the theories, concepts and models of organisational behaviour and management to address issues in organisations. 3. Work effectively with others to produce outputs to achieve organisational objectives. 4. Identify effective strategies for improving manager and/or individual employee skills and practice based upon their behaviours in different workplace situations. 5. Apply analytical and critical thinking skills to make context sensitive decisions and solve problems in contemporary organisations. UPDATES TO THIS SUBJECT The School is committed to continual improvement in teaching and learning. In assessing teaching and learning practices in a subject, the School takes into consideration student feedback from many sources. These sources include direct student feedback to tutors and lecturers, feedback through Student Services and Business Central, responses to the Subject and Course Evaluation Surveys. These important student responses are used to make ongoing changes to subjects and courses. This information is also used to inform systemic comprehensive reviews of subjects and courses. The first individual assessment task has been replaced (from Trimester 3 2014) with a mid—session individual in class examination (1 hour duration) comprising two short essays. This change has been introduced to provide development and feedback on examination essay techniques during the introductory subjects, to better prepare students for final subject examinations. The second assessment group work task now requires students to make an oral presentation to the class in their relevant groups, supported by a PowerPoint presentation and a summary paper to provide an assurance of learning in the area of oral and written communication. Clarification on the break—up of marks for the second assessment task has been added for trimester 2.
