Interview someone who has experienced change in the workplace and report what they learned from this experience.
Reflect on what they learned and what it means for you learning in this course.
Who should it be? No, the subject cannot be yourself. Yes, you can interview the person can live anywhere in the world and can speak any language
Assignment requirements for Informational Interview paper (worth 10%) Minimum 5 pages total Does not include title page and References page, of course Minimum 3 peer-reviewed sources Technical Report format using APA
The paper itself -- Focused on a specific Change Management experience in the Workplace of someone you've interviewed
Page 1 -- Title page as per APA formatting (doesn't count in page total, sorry) Fun fact, I like this style of formatting because then I don't see your name as I'm marking your paper in eLearn. It's one of the ways I am working on to minimize any accidental internal biases or prejudices I could've inherited
Pages 2-5 (or 6 or 7) -- Content Yes, you can go over the page count if you have a good reason, but don't write less or it hurts your marks!!! Written in traditional paragraphs using APA formatting rules Your Thesis Statement is the final sentence in the first paragraph and it presents to the Reader the overarching Lesson your Interviewee learned through experiencing Change In each paragraph, focus on a specific Theme from that Lesson that emerged from your interview In each Theme, discuss and examine what your Interview experienced and learned from experiencing a Workplace Change And then add in your own reflection on what this means!Yes, you can and should use First Person at least once in each paragraph Don't use more than one direct quotation (i.e. those things in quotation marks, not paraphrasing) from your Interviewee or your References per page, so about one per every second paragraph. Why? Because it looks like you're padding your paper. It's usually better to summarize and paraphrase what others have said or written. Sorry, it's just one of those weird, hidden rules of academia.
