Assessment 1 – Individual tutorial presentation (30%) – Learning outcomes 1 & 2
This assessment is to be undertaken individually during the tutorials with the student presenting facilitating the discussion of one of the discussion question topics outlined below.
ALL students are expected to have prepared detailed written solutions to the tutorial question listed below each week (not only when you are presenting) for the tutorial discussion. When answering the questions, include identification and discussion of relevant international marketing theories and concepts to support your answers.
In week 1, students will be required to choose their preferred questions for presentation. Please note, only two (or three) students are permitted to present each week (due to time restrictions).
Minimum requirements for the written and class presentation assessment are:
1. A detailed solution to the agreed questions for presentation and discussion covering the following criteria:
Your supporting reasons
Identification of the relevant international marketing theories or concepts from at least four (4) relevant secondary references (journal articles, newspapers, magazines etc.). Please note, at least two (2) of the sources must be academic journal articles. Re-stating the content of the textbook, lecture material or the textbook chapters is unacceptable. Students need to demonstrate that they can read and extract useful information from academic papers.
Identification of your own examples of application of the relevant theories.
Use of relevant maps, graphs, statistics and samples (e.g. samples of product(s) and its promotion) are encouraged.
2. A class presentation (maximum duration of 12 minutes) followed by leading a short class discussion (minimum duration 5 minutes, tutor will stop discussion if needed). The material must be presented. Reading directly from notes is not permitted and students must actively facilitate a class discussion. “Are there any questions?” is NOT considered class facilitation. Students failing to conduct a class discussion will have marks deducted.
Please note: Extensions will not be available for this assessment task. Students that cannot present on their nominated week will have to formally apply for special consideration. If approved, the students will be allowed to present during the tutorial in week 12.
