ABOUT THIS SUBJECT

Organisations are under pressure to change. The need for flexibility, team work, customisation and problem solving in the work context has created a need for understanding how organisations change and the way that change is managed. In this subject, you will focus on educational organisations and how they are responding to social, economic, political and technological change. The subject focuses on the key stakeholders, management and workers, and the way that organisational change impacts their life and work in the organisation. You will be introduced to change management theories, especially those relevant to educational organisations, and apply the theoretical knowledge to your experiences and practices. The common focus is how people might be enabled to deal with such changes and how change processes can provide better outcomes for all stakeholders. Recent case studies of workers whose institutions are changing are considered, together with practical strategies for the development of practical management skills.

SUBJECT INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (SILOs)

Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to:

  1. Examine the process of organisational change from broad social and economic perspectives

HURDLE REQUIREMENTS

There are a variety of assessment hurdles or conditions for passing a subject other than the overall mark.

Hurdle Requirements may be built into the assessment of the learning outcomes of your subject.

There are no Hurdle Requirements for this subject.

GENERAL ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENTS

SUBMITTING WRITTEN WORK WITH TURNITIN

Turnitin is a web-based text-matching software system used at La Trobe University to assist you in writing your assignments and checking for similarity with existing published work. Please remember to allow adequate time to submit your assignment to Turnitin. It is your responsibility to have your assignment

submitted by the assessment due date. Not receiving an originality report is not an acceptable reason for requesting an assignment extension unless it is a required part of the assessment.

POLICIES, PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINES

The University has a comprehensive policy framework to which both staff and students must adhere. You should familiarise yourself with those policies, procedures and guidelines likely to affect you especially the following:

  • Academic Integrity
  • Academic Progress Review
  • Assessment Policy
  • Adjustments to Assessment, including extensions to submission dates and Special Consideration
  • Health and Safety (OHS)
  • Privacy
  • Validation and Moderation, including applications for review and re-mark

ADJUSTMENTS FOR ASSESSMENT

You may be affected by a range of adverse circumstances while you are preparing for or undertaking an assessment task. There are avenues for adjustments to your assessment depending on the circumstances you face. For more detailed information refer to the Assessment Procedure – Adjustments.

REQUEST AN EXTENSION OF TIME TO SUBMIT AN ASSIGNMENT TASK

Where you know in advance that you will not be able to submit an assessment task by the due date due to adverse circumstances that have affected you during the preparation of the task, you will need to request an extension of time to submit. This must be done at least three days prior to the due date. Penalties normally apply if you submit an assessment after the due date. Poor time management is not an acceptable reason for an extension.

To apply, go to https://www.latrobe.edu.au/students/admin/forms/requestan-extension/request

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION

If you have experienced serious short term, adverse and unforeseen circumstances that substantially affect your ability to complete an assessment task to the best of your potential, you may be eligible to apply for Special Consideration. To do this or find more information, go to http://www.latrobe.edu.au/special- consideration

STUDENTS WITH A LEARNING ACCESS PLAN (LAP)

Students who have a Learning Access Plan must apply for any additional adjustments they may need via the same channels but may have access to more flexible arrangements depending on their circumstances.

Please refer to your LAP.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

Academic integrity means being honest in academic work and taking responsibility for learning the conventions of scholarship. Academic integrity education is integral to the learning experience at La Trobe University. The University requires its academic staff and students to observe the highest ethical standards

in all aspects of academic work, and it demonstrates its commitment to these values by awarding due credit for honestly conducted scholarly work, and by penalising academic misconduct and all forms of cheating.

The penalty for submitting an assignment under your name that is the work of a third-party may be severe, even leading to exclusion from the University without readmission. Refer to the Academic Integrity – Schedule of Responses and Penalties for Academic Misconduct within the Academic Integrity Policy.

You should understand and be able to practice integrity in all your academic work, and be familiar with the Academic Integrity website and complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) found in your LMS.

If you have any specific questions regarding Academic Integrity about your assessment, your Subject or Course Coordinator will be able to assist.
