The Course Paper is meant to show evidence of the successful student’s understanding of the materials covered throughout the course. This team-based work challenges you to apply the objectives in a way that demonstrates your understanding of these legal principles, as well as your writing abilities. It, alongside the Course Paper Team Information document, counts for 10% of the student’s course grade. The Course Paper is a team project. Each team must be made up of two to five students. Each student shall individually submit her or his Course Paper, though submissions will be identical to those of your teammates. The submission shall be either a Microsoft Word file or an Adobe PDF file.
The Course Paper is due no later than the end of Sunday, June 16th.
The document shall also include the policy statements. The policies need to focus on governing your company and its employees. This is where the work comes in. Your team needs to give evidence in the policy section of your knowledge gained in this course. In the assignment attachment, I describe the Course Paper requirements in a little more detail by using an acceptable format for your policy document. That attachment is not meant to be your template. Rather, it is designed merely to reflect what a successful policy document might look like in any given workplace. You will see in that document that I simply tried to explain more about what the Course Paper should include by using a format that may help you understand how to organize your paper, and understand what features this governance document should include.
The Course Paper is worth 100 points. I will give up to ten points for the submission’s form and format. That includes its organization, page count and team size, and grammar and spelling. The form and format is important because if a policy document is disorganized, contains typographical errors, or is hard to read otherwise, employees will not respect or even use it as the guidance it is meant to be. Consider a numbering or another outline styled structure to identify policy clauses.
I will give up to ten additional points for the introductory section.
I will give up to 80 points for the policy statements. Questions I will have in mind when reviewing your policy statements include, Did the team incorporate what we’ve learned about privacy? Can the document be read and understood by all levels of an organization? Are the policies concise, or vague and wordy?
Writing assistance is available by emailing a copy of your file to the International Academic Services office (yes, even if you are not an international student) at IAS@ucumberlands.edu. I highly recommend that you give the IAS Team at least two or three business days to review your work. Take into consideration the fact that you will likely need to respond to their efforts with some rewriting of your own, and you can start to calculate how much in advance of August 12th you should be planning on sending them a draft.
Have fun. Collaborate. Put together a document that would be useful to a real organization. Good Luck!
