Case Studies (CS) – 10% marks
There are many excellent long and short case studies found throughout Stone’s book relating to the various sections and chapters of the text. Students will be required to work on these case studies, with the view to better understand the various HR theories and concepts and also to prepare them for their final examination. The facilitator will chose and then allocate the case studies for each group during week 2 for class presentations from weeks 7/8 and 9. The time for each presentation may vary from 10 to 20 minutes followed by class discussions. The group’s power-point presentations, both soft and hard copies, must be submitted to the course facilitator on or before the presentation. No written report is required for CS. The class and the facilitator will evaluate each group’s presentation. A blank evaluation form will be made available in class and posted in Moodle. However, the facilitator has the final say in terms of the final marks to be allocated to each group. The criteria to be used as a guide for evaluating the CS presentations is provided in the blank evaluation form.
