Supplemental Reading Posts

Each module contains a Supplemental Reading Post where students must submit one post per week. The goal of the post is for the student to describe the lessons learned in the material which they believe applies to their management career ahead. Critique of the material is also welcome.

Each week students will:

Be asked to comment on two of the items (Items include journal articles and videos) in the Supplemental Reading Post module

Find an academic peer-reviewed article similar to one of the items to attach to their post. Some modules have as many as 10 items to choose from, but you only need to comment on two items.

The post should be in the form of a single thread with all of the topics included in the one thread. The thread should contain three to five sentences per item and have an attached PDF version of the student’s new article attached. If there are both articles and videos, a student should choose one of each. In the case you only find articles and no videos, you do two articles and vice versa.

A sample post will be provided in the first Supplemental Reading Post.

Expectations:

The approximate length of a response: 6-10 sentences (3-5 sentences per item (article/video).

Students are not required to respond to other student’s posts.

Each forum is only available for the dates listed in the forum.

All posts are due by Sunday at 11:59 PM of the week of the module.

Posts are worth two points each.

Students will be evaluated on their ability to utilize the concepts presented in the text to explain how these articles and videos inform their management career ahead.

Grades will normally be posted within 5 days.

Feedback for the Supplemental Reading Post will be provided when the student is not on track.
