Assessment 1: WikiWord limit: 600 (+/- 10%)
Weekly allocations commence 5pm AEDT Monday 21 November 2016 (Week 3)
Final submission due 5pm AEDT Monday 16 January 2017 (Week 9)
A successful career in politics and international affairs will require you to apply the theoretical perspectives to real-world scenarios and to present clear arguments to affect change. This task
will help you to develop these abilities with your colleagues while exploring events from around the globe.
In this task, you will apply a theory of international politics to an international politics case study. In your allocation week, you will present a clear argument that the case is best explained
by your allocated theory. Your presentation will take the form of a Blackboard wiki page to prompt critical discussion of the case within your learning group. In other weeks, you will evaluate the
arguments of your colleagues to explore a range of theoretical perspectives and cases.
This task will develop your knowledge of international politics theories and ability to present and analyse arguments in preparation for Assessment 3: Major essay. To give you some help, your eLA
will present the first case study on liberal internationalism in Week 2 to provide an example of how to complete the task.
Your assessment will consist of two components:
Wiki page (50%)
Selected contributions to other pages (50%)
Get started: sign up to a weekly allocation by the end of Week 1 in the Assessment 1 forum on Blackboard. Your eLA will provide instructions to the maximum number of students per allocation and
allocate any remaining students at the end of Week 1.
