Each week, you’ll be participating in a threaded discussion relative to chapter topics. They involve the whole class and deal with questions that come up in your chapter readings. You are required to post twice weekly in each unit discussion. In many cases, I will have multiple topics within each chapter discussion. You are not required to post on each topic to receive credit; you are required to respond and/or comment to one or more of the topics twice. Remember, it is a discussion so you should be responding to each other unless, of course, you begin the discussion on a specific topic. Short responses such as “I agree with John” will not count; nor will short one or two sentence responses. Also, if your response/comment is not original in thinking, you will not receive full credit. In other words, be sure to read other comments before you make your own or you could duplicate someone else’s response therefore reducing the point value for your thread. Those who wait until late Sunday may have a more difficult time with this.
Topic 1: Do you think you will commit your life to some corporation? Why or why not? What would motivate you to feel comfortable working in one environment versus another?
Topic 2: Have you worked for a company that you felt had strong internal communications? If so, share specifically how they achieved this (i.e. through social media, intranet site, etc.). If not, do a little bit of research to find a company that has been recognized for strong internal relationships with its employees and report on what you find/learn.
