When structuring a report in postgraduate business studies (or even undergraduate) what are the critical sections to include? What else do you need to do to succeed?
First things first. Always read the instructions laid down and determine the exact type of report you are required to produce and what must go in it, and what should not go in it. Most reports require APA or Harvard referencing. A business school assignment paper should typically have the following sections: Executive summary or Abstract Introduction Lit Review (if needed) Body/Discussion Findings (If needed) Recommendation or Solution (if solving a business problem) Conclusion References Appendices (tables, data)
Subject: Study Skills
What is the one factor (or skill) students at the postgraduate level need to succeed in their studies? How would they gain this skill?
There are many skills students need when learning, especially during COVID-19. Motivation, resilience, and a basic understanding of study skills in time management are critical.
Application of Educational Technology has been ad-hoc during COVID-19. Discuss.
COVID-19 has disrupted education and prompted academics to rethink and reflect on their teaching practices. Post COVID-19 they need to build on this rethinking to redesign and redevelop the courses. This should be done at a college level as well as by individual academics and should follow a strategic and systematic process.
