Study Guide

Responses to Chapter/Assigned Questions:

When answering the questions, include the question before the answer, then provide

complete, thorough, specific responses and discussion for each question. When

information from outside sources is required, have essential information from the source

and use the proper APA in-text and Reference documentation. Do not include any direct

quotes from either the textbook or sources. While retyping the question is not typical

of APA style, it will ensure that I see your complete response. Unless otherwise

requested, graphics such as diagrams, pictures, tables, etc., are not counted as part of the

minimum number of pages. While these may be used to explain your response to a

question, they will not count as part of the minimum number of pages.

Plagiarism: Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s work as though it were your own. If you

use another person’s words, ideas, or information, or material from a source – whether a

book, magazine, newspaper, business publication, broadcast, speech, or electronic media

– you must acknowledge the source. Plagiarism is a violation of the University’s code of

student ethical conduct and is taken seriously. Amberton University operates on an honor

system; therefore, honesty and integrity are essential characteristics of all associated with

the institution. All Amberton University students are expected to abide by the honor

system and maintain academic integrity in all their work.

Amberton University and its instructors monitor student work for plagiarism and reserve

the right to submit such work to technology-based anti-plagiarism services and

applications at any time. Students agree that by taking this course, all required papers

may be subject to submission for textual similarity review to TurnItIn.com to detect

plagiarism. In addition, all submitted papers will be included as source documents in the

TurnItIn.com reference database solely to detect plagiarism in such papers. Use of

TurnItIn.com service is subject to the Usage Policy posted on the TurnItIn.com site.

Outside Sources and APA: Outside sources will be required as part of several assignments. The articles/sources must

be current (2016-present), peer-reviewed, and from various professional journals. Use

EBSCO and other electronic databases to locate the articles. The articles should be

related to assigned chapters in the textbook. For clarification, an example of a scholarly,

peer-reviewed source would be Harvard Business Review, Academy of Management

Journal, etc. It is recommended to use online databases (i.e., EBSCO) to locate your

articles. The assignment document should include a Cover Page and a Reference Page.

Use the APA format for the Cover Page, Reference Page, and in-text citations. Refer to

the Citation Styles Tutorial and then locate the APA website. Select the APA website and

then review the APA Basic Tutorial and the Frequently Asked Questions. Submit all parts

of each Assignment as one document.

The written assignments should include the critical tenets of both the articles with

supporting the rationale. The student learner should use critical thinking and relate items

found in the chapter readings to synthesize the articles. The last paragraph of the paper

includes your opinion, and only in the previous section of the article and how it could

help contemporary management. The written assignments should exhibit scholarly

collegiate composition and critical thinking.

All assignments should be submitted in Microsoft Word using a 12 pt. Font size and

formatted as double-spaced using Times New Roman. Each of the Assignments has been

divided into specific questions with the suggested completion order. However, all the

questions in Assignment One will be submitted together by the due date and so forth.

Only one Assignment will be submitted at a time. Assignments may be submitted early

so you can work around other scheduling issues; however, they will not be graded until

after the official due date. Once one Assignment has been graded and returned to you,

another may be submitted. All Assignments are to be of graduate-level quality and will

be graded accordingly.

We will use the American Psychological Association (also known as APA) as the

standard. Your use of the APA style assures that you demonstrate consistency,

professional appearance, organization, and sufficient authentication and documentation.

Therefore, I will consider using proper APA style (7th edition) and the professionalism of

your work in determining your grade for an assignment. Written submissions must

follow the following guidelines:

 A title page that provides appropriate identifying information (APA manual provides an example)

 Double spacing left-justified

 Type size of 12 points

 Times New Roman font or its equivalent

 One inch margins on all sides

 Cite your sources and provide a reference page

 Submit assignments in Word formats

 Page numbers (Title page, table of contents, and references are not counted in the number of pages submitted).

 Properly cite sources in the body of your submission

Bloom’s Taxonomy: Bloom’s taxonomy is a classification system used to define and distinguish different

student learners’ cognition levels—i.e., thinking, learning, and understanding. Educators

typically use Bloom’s taxonomy to inform and guide the development of assessments

(tests and other evaluations of student learner learning), curriculum (units, lessons,

projects, and other learning activities, and instructional methods such as questing

strategies. This system is used in undergraduate and graduate education programs

throughout the United States. It has also been translated into many languages and used

around the world. Educators focus on the Cognitive Model, which includes six different

classification levels: Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and

Evaluation.

Discussions:

Late postings will not be accepted. Discussion postings are a two-step process. In Step

1, you will be asked to post a response to a discussion question. This may include

textbook questions, reviewing video links, conducting internet searches, and/or mini-

cases. I am expecting 250 to 400 words in your responses. In Step 2, you will pick two

other student learners’ posting and give them feedback. Your job is not to “nit-pick” their

post. If you disagree, provide scholarly-based feedback. It would help if you expanded

upon the posting content in your response. Comments like “great article” will not be

accepted. Be specific in your feedback. I am expecting 75-100 words in each of your

responses to other student learners’ postings. Reactions to other student learners’ postings

are due 5 days after the due date for the Step 1 postings.

Grading of discussion postings will be proportioned as follows:

 60% – your original posting with a reference

 20% – review of one other posting

 20% – review of one other posting

Meaning of Substantive: For this class, substantive means that your message has

substance and helps further the course content discussion. Substantive statements often

include contributions of additional ideas and sources, insights or questions about

classmates’ comments, connections to the course readings, or ways of applying the

lessons from the course. You will notice points deducted from your score if you do not

provide substance to your DQs and participation posts. Please keep in mind that

participation (DQ’s) is worth 15% of your overall course score. When preparing your DQ

responses, please be thorough in your assessment and provide references.

Tips for Creating Substantive Participation:

• Explain why you agree or disagree, and add some examples to support your belief.

• Relate your personal or work experiences to the topic at hand.

• Ask additional questions from your classmates.

• Make connections between the topics at hand and the readings in the text.

• Add ways you can apply the lessons from the class in your work and academic life.

GRADUATE PROJECT: Each graduate student will conduct a presentation via YouTube or other technology.

First, you will need to convert your recorded PowerPoint presentation to a video movie or

MPEG; then, you may upload it to YouTube. At that point, YouTube will give you a link

to share both on the discussion board for other students to review and in Moodle. You

will be expected to develop and design an effective global mobility program

highlighting international assignments, adjustment to foreign cultures, work role

factors, expatriation-repatriation cycle, and support practices of a particular

country. Refer to the Moodle for Graduate Research Project due date. You will

need to submit a PowerPoint PDF in Moodle.

The presentation will consist of a professional 25-30 minute analysis. You should use

PowerPoint (or other technology) to create the recording and production of the topic, and

presentations should be professional and engaging. You are also expected to follow

Bloom’s Taxonomy Guidelines during your presentation, including a robust Literature

Review. Would you please review my webcast on the details of your Graduate Research Project? Your grade will be based on the Critical Thinking Rubric (see study

guide). The student learner is expected to do ample research on the Managing the

Global Workforce, Global Mobility Programs and provide recent and relevant updated

information.

 25-30 minute presentation (recording).

 Zoom meeting with librarians and pre-approval by me. If these are not completed, there will be a 10% penalty. You will have a call with me.

 Graduate Project should include Introduction including your hypothesis statement; full literature review including studies relating to your topic,

limitations of the studies, what suggestions were made in each study (see

rubric); the methodology you used, and conclusions showing implications to

the 21st-century workforce. What recommendations would you make based

on research?

 You must upload the Graduate Research Project PDF to Moodle.

 The presentation Link should be posted in the Moodle discussion area for other student learners to review and comment!!
