Note that your voice should be clear in the audio of the presentation. Pay appropriate attention to the visuals being recorded. GUIDANCE FOR Students IN THE COMPLETION OF TASKS NOTE: The guidance offered below is linked to the five generic assessment criteria overleaf. Engagement with Literature Skills Your work must be informed and supported by scholarly material that is relevant to and focused on the task(s) set; you should make use of scholarly reviews and primary sources, as appropriate (for example, refereed research articles and/or original materials appropriate to the discipline). You should provide evidence that you have accessed a wide range of sources, which may be academic, governmental and industrial; these sources may include academic journal articles, textbooks, current news articles, organisational documents, and websites. You should consider the credibility of your sources; academic journals are normally highly credible sources while websites require careful consideration/selection and should be used sparingly. Any sources you use should be current and up-to-date, mostly published within the last five years or so, though seminal/important works in the field may be older. You must provide evidence of your research/own reading throughout your work, using correctly a suitable referencing system, including in-text citations in the main body of your work and a reference list at the end of your work. Guidance specific to this assessment: Students should demonstrate awareness of current crowdfunding methods and practice in the digital entrepreneurship space. Use credible resources e.g. journal articles, online resources for sourcing information. Provide a reference list at the end of the presentation. It is strongly recommended that you refer to the Academic Learning Skills in the Moodle and download the college Referencing Workbook. Appropriate academic writing and referencing are academic skills that you must develop and demonstrate. The use of journal articles and textbooks for reference sources is required. Highly quality online resources can be used with proper referencing. Knowledge and Understanding Skills At level 7, you should be able to demonstrate a systematic understanding of knowledge, and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights, much of which is at, or informed by, the forefront of your academic discipline, field of study or area of professional practice, with a comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to your own research or advanced scholarship. Your work must demonstrate your growing mastery of these concepts, principles, current challenges, innovation and insights associated with the subject area. Knowledge relates to the facts, information and skills you have acquired through your learning. You demonstrate your understanding by interpreting the meaning of the facts and information (knowledge). This means that you need to select and include in your work the contemporary concepts, techniques, models, theories, etc. appropriate to the task(s) set. You should be able to explain the theories, concepts, etc. meaningfully to show your understanding. Your mark/grade will also depend upon the extent to which you demonstrate your knowledge and understanding; ideally each should be complete and detailed, with comprehensive coverage. Guidance specific to this assessment: Based on your knowledge of the subject, select appropriate techniques, models and/or theories for use in this assignment in a particular context, the organisation and industry selected. This requires a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the changing commercial and digital environment for both the industry and organisation selected. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of crowdfunding and insight into current developments in crowdfunding practices. Show an understanding of the importance of crowdfunding for a business, the models and theories supporting crowdfunding, the types of crowdfunding and why you are using a particular form of crowdfunding when compared to the other types of crowdfunding methods or practice. Cognitive and Intellectual Skills You should be able to: evaluate critically current research and advanced scholarship in the discipline; evaluate methodologies and develop critiques of them and, where appropriate, to propose new hypotheses; deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively to make sound judgements in the absence of complete data. Your work must contain evidence of logical, analytical thinking, evaluation and synthesis. For example, to examine and break information down into parts, make inferences, compile, compare and contrast information. This means not just describing what! But also justifying: Why? How? When? Who? Where? At what cost? At all times, you must provide justification for your arguments and judgements. Evidence that you have reflected upon the ideas of experts within the subject area is crucial to you providing a reasoned and informed debate within your work. Your choice of methodologies to gather data and information must be rigorously defended. Furthermore, you should provide evidence that you are able to make sound judgements and convincing arguments using data and concepts. Sound, valid, persuasive conclusions are necessary and must be derived from the content of your work. Where relevant, alternative solutions and recommendations may be proposed. Guidance specific to this assessment: You must provide clear evidence of logical, analytical and critical thinking and evaluation based on the data and information collected. Research findings must be clearly linked to the conclusions drawn and the strategic options evaluated and the specific strategies chosen. You should then derive sound conclusions from the content of the work and propose 3/4 relevant/appropriate ways forward for the organisation based on the findings. Demonstrate a depth of critical analysis. Show insight and reasoning in your application of crowdfunding to the given organisation. Explain clearly to the reader why you made the choices you made e.g. why a given method of crowdfunding, why implement it in a particular way, etc. Show the ability to make convincing decisions with the information you have. Practical Skills At level 7, you should be able to demonstrate originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in the discipline. This includes acting autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a professional or equivalent level, originality in tackling and solving problems, and decision-making in complex and unpredictable contexts or situations. You should be able to demonstrate mastery of the leading edge subject-related concepts and ideas as they relate to real world situations and/or particular contexts. How do they work in practice? You will deploy models, methods, techniques, and/or theories, in those contexts or circumstances, to assess current situations, perhaps to formulate plans or plausible, justifiable recommendations to solve problems, or to propose new models, or to create artefacts, which may be innovative and creative, thereby demonstrating your understanding of how the boundaries of knowledge are advanced through research and/or application. This is likely to involve, for instance, the use of real world artefacts, examples and cases, the application of a model within an organisation and/or benchmarking one theory or organisation against others. Guidance specific to this assessment: You should deploy your chosen techniques, models and/or theories, to industry and the organisation, giving real-life examples throughout of what the organization has done to illustrate the points you make. Show that you understand crowdfunding at a practical level, how it works in practice, that you have learned lessons that can be extrapolated to other organisations. Evaluate what works in practice for a digital business versus what works in theory. Transferable Skills for Life and Professional Practice Your work must provide evidence of the qualities and transferable skills necessary for postgraduate-level employment in circumstances requiring sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative in complex and unpredictable professional environments. This includes demonstrating: the independent learning ability for continuing professional development to advance existing skills and acquire new competences of a professional nature that will enable you to assume significant responsibility within organisations; that you can initiate and complete tasks, projects and procedures, whether individually and/or collaboratively, to a professional level; that you can use appropriate media to effectively communicate information, arguments and analysis in a variety of forms for a variety of audiences; fluency of expression; clarity and effectiveness in presentation and organisation. Work should be coherent and well-structured in presentation and organisation. Guidance specific to this assessment: The assignment submission should be such that the understanding and knowledge gained from this task and what was learned from this task will help you in the undertaking of future assignments. Show your passion and connect with your audience, both in the live environment and in the video format. .
