|Subject: Evaluation Criteria / Personal Journal / Grade Weights Sun Jun 21, 2009 9:00 pm|| |
The class participation grade will reflect an evaluation of the quality and quantity of students' contributions during class sessions over the course of the semester. Students are expected to have thoughtfully read and studied all assigned topics prior to class. Some class sessions will begin with instructor or student led questions and answers. Therefore, students should be prepared to discuss the assigned topics, answer questions, and contribute to group discussions at every class. It is unlikely that a simple read of the chapters and assigned materials will sufficiently equip students for class. Look for opportunities to apply the chapter's concepts to situations in class discussions and take time to write down any unanswered questions. It is also suggested that industry visits be conducted beforehand and relate assigned topics based on students reflections/observation in the industry.
A personal journal gives you an opportunity to concretize your learning. The America Heritage English dictionary defines a journal as " a diary or record of daily occurrences". Each fortnight, you will submit a journal entry that summarizes new knowledge acquired as a result of your participation in the ISP project, reading of the assigned materials, as well as group and class discussions. The journal should also include any concerns and insights that you may have gained through external readings and/or the conduct of strategic information systems planning and implementation in your organization. You are expected to post your entry regularly in your own personal blog.
Major paper: Information Systems Plan (ISP)
This is a group project. Students will form groups of 4 or 5 members and conduct industry analysis. Students may form their own groups. Each group will be responsible for an Information Systems Plan study for a real organization. The students themselves will identify the organization. The selected organization should have an information system department. Students are expected to make an oral presentation and submit a written report on this project. Each group has to select a group leader and prepare a Gantt chart for the project schedule by the 1st week of July 2008.
Blogging is an integral part of my course requirement and they are introduced at the beginning of the semester by way of conducting seminar-workshop on blogging. One of the requirements in this subject is for students to have their own personal blog where they are required to document their work by blogging regularly. They are to investigate topics online and respond to critical analyses of one’s own work and talk about experiences by way of providing some comments and suggestion for every topic. Online assignment and exercise are given regularly. They are required to read and comment each others’ work.
Individual case study should be posted in the MyWebForum as well as in the students personal blog. Students are required to read and fully understand the reminders especially in the area of plagiarism.
The course will be taught by a mixture of sharing and industry visits.
Grade points will be assigned according to the weighting scheme shown below. Weighted grade points will be summed, a course grade will be assigned based on this value. The maximum grade you can earn for the requirements defined above will be a "100" or its equivalent given that you submit high quality assignments, do effective group presentations, participate consistently in class discussion and the submission of the major paper..
(Industry Analysis/presentation/sharing, etc.) - 10 %
ISP Project - 50%
Case Study/Assignment/Exercises - 30 %
Personal Journal/Blog - 10%
