Group Discussion Board Instructions
You are required to participate in weekly group discussion board forums throughout this course using the Group Discussion Board.
For the second week of class, there are 2 forums due each module/week, and each Forum consists of 2 parts: individual (Part 1) and collaborative (Part 2).
In weeks 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, there is 1 forum due each module/week, and each forum consists of 2 parts: individual (Part 1) and collaborative (Part 2).
The 2 parts of each forum (individual and collaborative) are considered as 1 unified assignment; thus, incomplete assignments will not earn credit. If you complete only Part 1, you will not earn credit. Likewise, if you participate only in Part 2, you will not earn credit. Both parts must be posted by the respective deadlines and in their entirety in order to earn credit.
Each post must use current APA format, peer-reviewed references, and the articles and/or websites provided in the class. Each post must also be written in a substantive manner without spelling and grammar errors at the graduate level (no instant messaging language, please). For the group discussion aspect of the assignment, there must be substantive interaction and discussion among the group’s members regarding the content and formatting of the submission. Average substantive interaction will earn lower grades than above average substantive interaction.
For each group discussion board forum:
· Perform academic research to support your strategies by finding and utilizing 2 peer-reviewed sources in addition to assigned course reading in the text and assigned library and website readings. Research should be performed in the Liberty University Online Library.
· Use current APA format.
· Write in third person.
· Write at graduate-level quality.
· List references at the end of each required thread.
Following are the general instructions for completing your group discussion board assignments (topics are given within the modules/weeks):
Individually, you will write a minimum 400-word thread discussing the following
(use the following as headings in each thread):
· Introduction to the topic.
o A short overview of the topic
· Three Concepts
o The 3 most important concepts you have learned from the textbook readings, website and article readings.
o In the discussion, include why these are the most important for an organization to consider.
· References – 4 total
o 2 peer-reviewed references from the Liberty University Online Library into your thread. These references must have been published in the previous 4 years.
o 1 reference from the text.
o 1 reference from the assigned article(s) or from the website readings.
Use proper grammar and current APA formatting.
As the individual submission is very important to the group’s final product, it must meet the requirements as noted above (as to both the required references and discussion points). This gives the group a strong foundation for the group submission and ensures that each member is working toward adding value to the group.
Failure to post by the deadline and/or not meet the requirements for the individual posting above will result in a penalty deduction from the group’s score.
Your individual thread (Part 1) for Group Discussion Board Forums must be posted by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday of the assigned module/week.
