Select one article for your presentation. Identify a good quality journal article from the CQU library databases and business press publications such as Harvard Business Review. The article must have been published within the last five years. Analyse the chosen article to identify a key theme for current research and thinking on your topic, rather than simply summarizing the article.

Design your presentation. A template has been provided to guide your presentation with the aim to engage your class on the latest thinking research on your HRM topic. Presentation is to be a maximum of seven (7) minutes with a maximum of seven (7) PowerPoint slides. You need to communicate : the title, topic, objective of the research, method for the research, argument/findings, Conclusion, and how it contributes to the week’s lecture theme.

(Distance students record a voiceover on powerpoint)

Upload your slides before the presentation. Your powerpoint slides must be uploaded before your presentation, to assist with prompt marking. You should also provide your lecturer/tutor with a printed copy of the PowerPoint slides.

TurnitIn is only a tool and judgement needs to be used when you view your Originality Report.

You should use the similarity score as a guide only and must then check the originality report to determine whether or not changes need to be made to the assessment.
