Blog topic for the week of March 29

This post is due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, April 5.

This week, we will discuss the importance of a having a guiding set of ethical principles when entering the workplace.  We'll identify events in history in which business was part of an ethical lapse in the business/government/social setting.  

Reflect upon the examples that we have discussed.  What did you learn from this?  How would you explain your own set of ethical principles as you prepare to enter the workforce or graduate school?

Blog topic for the Week of March 23

This post is due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, March 29.

This week, I'd like you to think about an experience you have witnessed in which information was miscommunicated in the work setting.  If you have not yet had a job, you may also reflect on a miscommunication on a sports team or within any social organization.  What happened to cause the miscommunication to occur?  What was the aftermath? How might the miscommunication have been prevented?

Blog topic for the week of March 2

This blog post is due by 11:59 pm on March 8.

Last week, you posted about your three favorite presentations.  However, we did not have time to finish them all.  For this week, do two things:

1.  Blog about one more presentation (given on Monday or Wednesday, depending on snow conditions).  Talk about what you liked about this presentation and why you chose it as your favorite of the last group of presentations.

2. Blog about your past experiences with online portfolios. What programs did you use?  Was it a good experience or a bad experiences?  What do you need to know in order to ensure that you are ready for the portfolio draft due on March 23?
