Assessment

Your task:

The individual website-based presentation (40%) requires you to develop a page (interactive presentation) with Adobe Spark. However, the content still needs to be academic, including the application of one appropriate behavioural concept and the critical analysis thereof. The overall word count for the website-based presentation is limited to 1,500. Adobe Spark provides you with several tools, e.g. embedding of videos, photos, and links, to creatively and aesthetically present the content. There are support seminar sessions scheduled (week 5 & 6) and additional support videos on Blackboard to provide you with the necessary skills and opportunities to ask questions.

 

•  Word limit 1,500

   (excluding footnotes, references and bibliography)

• less than 1,500 words – not likely to be of sufficient depth to reach the required standard

• more than 1,500 words is not likely to be sufficiently focussed and succinct

àTry to be sharp and concise!

 

 

– develop a Adobe Spark Page

– utilise the Adobe Spark tools, e.g. embedding of videos, photos, and links to support your content

àTry to be creative and visually appealing!

Important aspects to consider:

• _You must justify all your arguments by supporting them through relevant academic literature, statistics and/ or examples.

• _Conclude an answer to the set question based on your research.

 

( As this is a module in an academic business programme, I am looking for evidence that you’re using the theory you are reading about and discussing. So use it and use the terms. Don’t waste space defining terms; we all have the book.

Taking the “cohort theory” approach in which the ontological assumption is that “people born in the same period…in the same socio-economic climate will have similar consumer related needs, wishes and attitudes” thus explaining their similar consumer behaviours (Valkenners and Vanhoomissen, 2012, 54), it is necessary to define each generation group under consideration. )
