Task: Analysis of Contemporary Media Reporting on the World of Work
Students will choose four media articles discussed in four different tutorials between week 2-12 and complete a template (see Canvas) for each individual article which asks them to:
*Identify the key ideas presented in the media article as they relate to concepts of work and employment raised in course lectures and readings;
*Identify the benefits and/or challenges workers confront in the article, and how these connect with the course readings for the topic;
*Reflect as a manager or policy maker and explain how appreciating worker interests as identified in the media report might contribute to certain actions by you to address it.
Assessment criteria will be:
