TASK DESCRIPTION

Produce an e-portfolio that addresses the following tasks:

1. Create a mind map that demonstrates how the ideas and concepts covered in Unit One of the module are interconnected and how they contributed to the development of your project idea. Your mind map should be no more than 300 words, with supporting imagery, and can be hand drawn or produced using MS Word, PowerPoint or an appropriate technology such as Mind Meister available at: www.mindmeister.com/ . The mind map should be referenced appropriately.

The resources covered in Unit One of this module will help you to complete this task.

(18 marks)

2. Using a medium of your choice, create a reflective piece that outlines how you came up with your idea and how it adds value, based on the concepts introduced in Unit Two of the module. You should use a medium appropriate to your subject discipline, this can be a written document, a blog, a video/vlog or a visualisation and should be equivalent to 500 words (3 minutes of recorded content). A list of sources used to inform your summary should be included in a reference list, using the appropriate referencing standard. 

The resources covered in Unit Two of this module will help you to complete this task.

(18 marks)

3. Create a 2 minute elevator style pitch or presentation of your idea. The pitch should be recorded and a link included with the Turnitin submission. The presentation should be designed to engage potential contributors/buyers of the benefits of your idea. For example, if you have an awareness raising idea, your pitch should succinctly portray the issue and how you would like people to get involved.

The resources in Unit Three of this module will help you to complete this task. (27 Marks)

4. Create an A3 digital conference poster or Powerpoint showcasing your project. Your poster/powerpoint should make reference to the learning covered in Unit Four of the module.  A list of references should be included.

If you worked as part of a team, then create a poster exhibition covering the work of the whole team with as many posters as team members.

The resources in Unit Four of this module will help you to complete this task. (27 Marks)

E-Portfolio Submission

You should submit all parts of the portfolio in one document, which includes a title and contents page along with a list of references for all elements. If it is not possible to incorporate the work into a document then links to the materials should be inserted.

Participation and contribution

This mark will be awarded based on your tutor’s assessment of your active participation in, and contributions to, the learning activities throughout the module.  

Tutors will award marks for completing specified tasks and for the output you produce and submit (e.g. completion of activities, messages posted in   discussion threads, active participation in discussions). This mark relates to both participation and contribution, so simply completing all module study activities is not a guarantee that you will receive the full 10 marks. If your tutor does not feel you have participated in these activities, the 10 marks will be lost. 

(10 marks) 

GUIDANCE FOR Students IN THE COMPLETION OF TASKS

NOTE: The guidance offered below is linked to the five generic assessment criteria overleaf.

1. Engagement with Literature Skills

Your work must be informed and supported by scholarly material that is relevant to and focused on the task(s) set.    You should provide evidence that you have accessed an appropriate range of sources, which may be academic, governmental and industrial; these sources may include academic journal articles, textbooks, current news articles, organisational documents, and websites.  You should consider the credibility of your sources; academic journals are normally highly credible sources while websites require careful consideration/selection and should be used sparingly.   Any sources you use should be current and up-to-date, mostly published within the last five years or so, though seminal/important works in the field may be older.  You must provide evidence of your research/own reading throughout your work, using a suitable referencing system, including in-text citations in the main body of your work and a reference list at the end of your work.

Guidance specific to this assessment: Your portfolio should include reference to at least 8 such sources and the referencing standard for you course applied throughout.

2. Knowledge and Understanding Skills

At level 5, you should be able to demonstrate: sound knowledge and critical understanding of the well-established concepts and principles of the subject area and the way in which those principles have developed; knowledge of the main methods of enquiry in the discipline.  Knowledge relates to the facts, information and skills you have acquired through your learning.  You demonstrate your understanding by interpreting the meaning of the facts and information (knowledge). This means that you need to select and include in your work the concepts, techniques, models, theories, etc. appropriate to the task(s) set.  You should be able to explain the theories, concepts, etc. meaningfully to show your understanding.  Your mark/grade will also depend upon the extent to which you demonstrate your knowledge and understanding.

Guidance specific to this assessment: You should refer to learning from the relevant units in the module. Your response to the tasks should demonstrate knowledge of relevant concepts, theories and models relating to innovation, creativity and the resources required to bring your ideas into being.

3. Cognitive and Intellectual Skills

You should be able to critically analyse information, and propose solutions to problems arising from that analysis, including the critical evaluation of the appropriateness of different approaches to solving problems. Your work must contain evidence of logical, analytical thinking, evaluation and synthesis. For example, to examine and break information down into parts, make inferences, compile, compare and contrast information.  This means not just describing what! But also justifying: Why? How? When? Who? Where? At what cost? At all times, you must provide justification/evidence for your arguments and judgements.  Evidence that you have reflected upon the ideas of others within the subject area is crucial to you providing a reasoned and informed debate within your work.  Furthermore, you should provide evidence that you are able to make sound judgements and convincing arguments using data and concepts, with an understanding of the limits of knowledge, and how this influences analyses and interpretations. Sound, valid conclusions are necessary and must be derived from the content of your work.   Where relevant, alternative solutions and recommendations may be proposed.

Guidance specific to this assessment: Your selection of material should demonstrate critical awareness of thinking in the field. Arguments should be regularly underpinned with reference to evidence which has been judiciously selected.

4. Practical Skills

At level 5, you should be able to use/deploy a range of established techniques within the discipline, and apply underlying concepts and principles outside the context in which they were first studied, including, where appropriate, the application of those principles in an employment context. You should be able to demonstrate how the subject-related concepts and ideas relate to real world situations and/or a particular context.  How do they work in practice?  You will deploy models, methods, techniques, and/or theories, in that context, to assess current situations, perhaps to formulate plans or solutions to solve problems, or to create artefacts, some of which may be creative.  This is likely to involve, for instance, the use of real world artefacts, examples and cases, the application of a model within an organisation and/or benchmarking one theory or organisation against others based on stated criteria.  You should show awareness of the limitations of concepts and theories when applied in particular contexts.

Guidance specific to this assessment: It is essential you demonstrate application of the module concepts in the development of your idea.

5. Transferable Skills for Life and Professional Practice

Your work must provide evidence of the qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment requiring the exercise of personal responsibility and decision-making.  This includes demonstrating: professional development to advance existing skills and acquire new competences that will enable you to assume significant responsibility within organisations; that you can initiate and complete tasks and procedures, whether individually and/or collaboratively; that you can use appropriate media to effectively communicate information, arguments and analysis in a variety of forms to specialist and non-specialist audiences; fluency of expression; clarity and effectiveness in presentation and organisation. Work should be coherent and well-structured in presentation and organisation.
