Online lecture videos
Lecture content will be delivered via online videos – there are no on-campus lectures for this unit. Due to the use of online videos in this unit, students must either have reliable access to computing equipment and internet, or else must access these facilities on campus. Approximately 2 hours of videos per week will be provided via the iLearn website for each of the 13 teaching weeks. Individual videos will vary in duration, with most running between 25-40 minutes. An assessable weekly quiz is used to encourage students to keep up to date with watching the videos.
Online expert interviews
In addition to the lecture videos, you have access to a range of interviews with respected experts in this field. Interviews with organisational psychology researchers and practitioners provide you with key insights into the "what, why and how" of key areas, beyond what you will see in any textbook.
External students are required to attend all scheduled tutorial workshops (3 x 4 hour tutorial workshops). Tutorial times are listed on the university timetable: http://www.timetables.mq.edu.au/
Managing Classes: Changes to all units can be done on-line via eStudent before the start of semester and for a brief period after semester begins.
The textbook set for this unit is currently:
Landy, F. J, & Conte, J. M. (2010). Work in the 21st Century: An Introduction to Industrial and Organizational Psychology (3rd Edition). McGraw Hill.
In addition to reading appropriate sections from the textbook, students are encouraged to read articles published in journals in the field of organisational psychology to provide the information required for the major assignment, as well as furthering their understanding of this field. High quality journals include the Journal of Applied Psychology and the Academy of Management Journal. This will be important for many of the assessment activities, particularly the literature review.
The iLearn site will include links to other online resources you can explore to learn more about each topic.
