Module : Organsiational Psychology
Description of Assessment Task and Purpose:
he second assessment on this module is a 2,500-word essay which will contain theory, practice and reflection. The purpose of this assessment is to assess your ability to employ concepts and theory from the field of organisational psychology in the analysis of your own experience in the team simulation.
The key question you must address in your essay is: What did you learn about teamwork and about your individual strengths and weaknesses from participating in the team simulation?
The key question you must address in your mid-point assessment is: What have you learned about creating successful teams on the module so far and how will you apply this knowledge in the team simulation? You should support your reflections with practical examples and references to academic literature.
dditional Information for Completion of Assessment:
Your reflections will be personal to you, can include your feelings and reactions, and so you should use first person pronouns (e.g. ‘I’ and ‘we’).
Ensure all sources referenced in your assessment are correctly listed according to the Harvard System of referencing.
Include only sources that you have cited in the work. If you consult any sources which you have not cited, they should be listed in a Bibliography.
It is very important to use appropriate academic books/e-books and journals/e-journals as the basis for your research.
Whilst you may use the internet, take great care to ensure that the sites are valid and appropriate for academic purposes – sites such as Wikipedia, Businessballs.com, MindTools.com etc. are inappropriate for academic research.
