The discussions each week are designed to (a) reinforce the research topics that you are reading about, (b) challenge you to explore the topics further, and (c) test your understanding of the concepts and their application within business research.
Before beginning work on this week’s discussion post, review the following resources:
· Doing Discussion Questions Right
· Expanded Grading Rubric
From the bullet point list below, select one topic for which you will lead the discussion in the forum this week. Early in the week, reserve your selected topic by posting your response (reservation post) to the Discussion Area and identifying your topic in the subject line. By the due date assigned, research your topic and start a scholarly conversation as you respond with your initial or primary post to your own reservation post in the Discussion Area. Make sure your response does not duplicate your colleagues’ responses:
By now in your doctoral program, you should be aware that a good research question is the start of doctoral-level inquiry. You can summarize the key themes in the subject line of your reservation post. Then, state your research question as your reservation post.
Some of the main topics this week include:
OD values and ethics
Other potential topics and subtopics exist in the readings.
· Succinct—no more than 500 words.
· Supported—scholarly conversations are more than opinions. Ideas, statements, and conclusions are supported by clear research and citations from course materials as well as other credible, peer-reviewed resources.
Engage in a discussion with at least two colleagues and respond to questions from your professor by the end of the week.
Firstly, The reservation post and initial post are assessed in the rubric line item “Quality of initial posting.”
Secondly, Neither the reservation post nor the initial post count toward days of participation.
Lastly, Follow-up posts made throughout the week to your colleagues and professor will apply to participation points in the rubric.
All posts will be assessed for writing mechanics and information literacy. Be sure to review the expanded rubric for more details on grading criteria
