4. Create questions that are relevant to the topic and write them in the template
5. Ideally the Mentoring Plan (template) that you have created would be competed with an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person, instead of this list and/or describe the ways you would communicate with an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person
Before creating your questions you will need to do some research of the following organisations websites to ensure you have created questions that would not be seen as inappropriate or offensive to an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person.
• Australian Indigenous Education Foundation • Australian Indigenous Mentoring experience • Victorian Aboriginal Education Assistance Inc.
• Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages
• Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation Inc.
• Stolen Generations Victoria
• Reconciliation Australia

• What you have learnt about yourself and your understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, consider what has changed in regards to your understanding of their culture, the similarities and differences that you have?
• How will you advocate for anti-racism?
• Were there any surprises. Will you change any of the behaviours you have to accommodate their culture? If yes what? If no, why not?
• How you would develop cultural competency towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and ho would encourage others to gain the same competency

• Analyse the cases using marketing principles, theories and concepts that you have been acquiring from studying marketing

The Case
Case 5 – Barbie & Retail Failure in China
The Goal
• Analyse the cases using marketing principles, theories and concepts that you have been acquiring from studying marketing
Suggested Report Structure
• Cover Page
• Table of Contents
• Introduction (suggest 50 words)
• Key Marketing Issue (suggest 200 words)
o identifying the key marketing issue in the case (what is the main thing going on?)
• Secondary Marketing Issues (suggest 300 words)
o secondary marketing issues in the case (what are the other things going on?).
• Case Question Answers (suggest 400 words)
o Beyond this you should answer the questions at the end of the case, making sure that in doing so you draw on marketing principles, theories and concepts.
• Marketing Recommendations (suggest 200 words)
o Then you should think that if you had the power to make marketing recommendations (as a consultant or commentator) what would you say (at a broad or a specific level) to companies and/or brands featured in the case.
• Self-Reflection about Marketing (suggest 250 words)
o Lastly, you will need to self-reflect on why you think the case author wrote the case study i.e. what did he or she intend students to get out of it, in terms of learning about marketing.
• Bibliography
• Appendices
Approaching the Case Analysis
• Five brief cases (less than 1.5 pages each) have been selected for you. Each case does have substantive content in it, and it is suggested that you read the case at least twice, before beginning discussions with other team members. In reading your case initially you may wish to note down the contents that stand out to you most, as well as your own impressions and reactions.
• Then it is suggested that you start discussions with your team members quickly followed by sharing thoughts among both groups. (both the local ones and the ones at the partner university). You could even keep a group log of your initial thoughts, impressions and reactions.
• Having done that it is suggested that group members conduct some secondary research on the companies and/or brands featured in your case. See if you can find any additional information that helps inform you further about what is going on in the case. This will help enriched your analysis of the case, and your ability to make marketing recommendations. Generate these recommendations by yourself, then share them with your local team members and the ones at the partner university. That way a wider pool of recommendations can be generated, and you can then discuss which one or two you would like to select for inclusion in the report. Earlier on, apply this approach to identification of the key issue (and the secondary issues). That way you don’t just go with group opinion based on ‘group think’ right from the start, but instead use the individual thinking power of each of the group members in both Australia and the United States. You might be surprised how focused, strategic and creative the output can be!
• In summary
o Step 1 Read the case and conduct secondary research
o Step 2 Discuss findings, issues, case answers and recommendations with local team
o Step 3 initiate robust discussions with your counterpart team by Skype or another technology
Timeline, Word Count, & Document Format
• Due Friday 27th October.
• The group members can submit the assignment to their respective universities.
• The maximum word count for the Report is 1,400 words, not including the Cover Page, Bibliography, and any appendices that students may choose to include.
• The word count tolerance in the main body is +/- 10% of the 1,400 words, and any appended material cannot exceed 10% of the main body.
• The document may be submitted in either Word or PDF format.
Citations & the Bibliography
All sources utilised within your Report should be fully cited, with a referencing system (suggest Harvard) agreed between the ACU/CUA group members. It will not be necessary however to cite the case itself each time the contents are mentioned in your Report. The Bibliography should contain full bibliographical information, for all sources used (whether directly or indirectly), including the case study.

Imagine that a line manager has asked you, a hiring expert, for advice about two of the following sets of job performance predictors:

OPIC 2 – Literature review

Imagine that a line manager has asked you, a hiring expert, for advice about two of the following sets of job performance predictors:

1. Application forms, training and experience evaluations, reference checks
2. Weighted application blanks and biographical data
3. The selection interview
4. Ability tests
5. Personality assessment
6. Performance tests and assessment centres
7. Another topic or topics of your choosing (please check your proposed topic with the subject coordinator first to ensure you choose a practical, researchable topic).

Use a total of about 10 (ie 5 references per topic), but a minimum of 6 recent academic* sources (ie 3 per topic) to advise the line manager about recent research on this topic that will be of practical interest to him or her. In addition, please tell the line manager whether the new research reveals any potential ethical issues about the topic. (By ethical issues, I mean ways in which someone might be treated unfairly, or other ways in which something morally wrong might happen.) If the answer is yes, suggest what needs to be done to avoid these ethical problems.
Note 1: this assignment requires you to investigate additional sources beyond those referred to in the textbook. The idea is for you to go to library sources and find out about the most recent research, debates, or even scandals about your selected issues and tell the manager what he or she can learn from this. Some international students have done some particularly fine research on, for example, how well specific selection techniques could be expected to work in their home countries.
Note 2: For the ethical side of the question you do not need to find additional references. You can use the readings from week 2 to help you think about potential ethical issues that arise from the topic, or simply think about the topic yourself from an ethical perspective and reach your own conclusions.

Note 3: This topic is NOT easier to do well than topic 1 (the organisational critique).

Critique Assignment
Formatting:
· Maximum length: 700 words
· APA format.
· APA-style citations and reference
Content:
· If desired, introduce the issue that the book discusses with an opener to “hook” your audience. This could be a provocative statement, a question, a short personal anecdote, recent news story, or interesting statistic. Your opener must be specific, not a sweeping generalization.
· Summarize the main idea/argument/points of the article. Explain why this information is relevant or interesting.
· Include a thesis statement with the main point or idea in your critique.
· In a series of paragraphs, evaluate the content of the book and the way the content is presented. You could comment on some (but not all) of the following aspects: content/ideas, the way the argument is developed, whether the advice presented is solid, organization, audience, writing style, tone, reading level, graphics/pictures/diagrams, layout.
· Conclude with an interesting or witty statement that clearly describes why the work is important or useful to the reader (or why it has failed to achieve its goals).
*You are aiming for an objective tone, not a subjective tone. You will talk about “the reader” NOT “you”. You are presenting an objective evaluation of the work, not discussing whether you personally like it or think it is good or bad. You might use the pronoun “I” if you include a personal story in your introduction, but the rest of the essay will use third person pronouns (“the author,” “the reader,” “the audience”).

She believes that the big tourism attraction on the outskirts of town must have some printing needs she could meet. One day, on the way back from delivering an order to a client, Rose stopped in at the administration office and asked who made the decisions about print advertising and if she could get the person’s best contact details. She was told it was Collin Downs and was given his mailing address. Rose needs to write a letter to Collin explaining what she could do to help him—brochures, newsletters, site maps, place mats for the dining room, etc.—and how quickly they could get them printed. Imagine you are Rose. Write a letter to Collin introducing yourself, your business and explaining how you can help him. Remember WIFM. Produce the letter in the appropriate format. Part 4: Letter Writing (Weighting 5%) The Unhappy Customer Success Labs mandates that all customer service contacts demonstrate the company’s position, values and value-added service; however, they have been getting a few complaints about one of the webinar speakers for “12 Steps to Sell Online”. To whom it may concern: I purchased access to the webinar “12 Steps to Sell Online” on January 20th. I was greatly disappointed with the quality of the presentation and the skills of the presenter. The speaker was crass, condescending and borderline rude. He assumed those his audience were idiots and communicated as much with his off-hand comments. You should really rethink who you have present on behalf of your organisation. I am so disgusted that I would not only like a refund for this webinar, but I also want to close my Success Labs membership and want a refund on that as well.

The purpose of this assignment is to develop a health service plan in order to undertake health service review and development for one clinical stream (or designated services within one clinical stream) for Sydney Local Health District.

Length
2000 words approximately
Rationale
Insert details per learning guide
Task
The purpose of this assignment is to develop a health service plan in order to undertake health service review and development for one clinical stream (or designated services within one clinical stream) for Sydney Local Health District.
Criteria
The health service plan will undertake health service review and development for one clinical stream for Sydney Local Health District, based on a choice of a series of options from three clinical position papers. These are:
? Sydney Local Health District (2013). Cancer Services Clinical Stream Position Paper. [1]
? Sydney Local Health District (2013). Women’s Health, Neonatology and Paediatrics Clinical Stream Position Paper. [2]
? •Sydney Local Health District (2015). Oral Health Clinical Stream Position Paper.[3]
Sydney Local Health District has made the Clinical Stream Position papers available on their web site and these papers include sufficient information to prepare a Health Service Plan (HSP). However the clinical streams are very large and therefore students are to choose one of the specific topics for their plan:
? Cancer Services
? Palliative Care Services
? Women’s Health, Neonatology (including benign Gynaecology)
? Paediatric Services
? Oral Health Services.
A health service plan needs to address services across the continuum of care including primary and secondary prevention, inpatient care, restorative care and management of ongoing health.
The data included in the source documents does not include inpatient activity projections. Therefore this is not required in the HSP.
The following sections are to be included in the plan:
? Introduction
? Planning principles
? Demographic analysis including relevant population projections
? Needs assessment
? Service profile within Sydney LHD, including Role Delineation Levels and Models of Care
? Current activity levels, including separations and bed days by facility and across the LHD
? Catchment and reverse catchment profiles
? Situational analysis – Strategic Issues and Priorities
? Future Services Profile by Facility and across the LHD and Proposed Role Delineation Levels and Models of Care
? Key goals, objectives, strategies in table format.
? Overarching recommendations and conclusions.
