Assignments and Projects:

Dream Job. Consider your dream job in sport or leisure that you want to be doing in 15-20 years. This is going to be part of a larger assignment, so be thoughtful with your response. Include a rationale for (a) why this is your dream job and (b) what you anticipate enjoying most about this job. This assignment should be no longer than 1 page in length. Formatting for this assignment should conform to APA guidelines. In accordance with APA, this assignment should include a cover page with the following information: the title of the assignment, student name, course number, and name, date, and instructor name. Further, formatting should be double-spaced with 1-inch margins and typed in 12-point Times New Roman font. The dream job assignment should be submitted for grading via D2L no later than 11:59 PM CT by the given due date. No assignments will be accepted late.

Position Descriptions. This assignment requires that you locate 2 position descriptions. The first position description should be for your dream job in the sport or leisure management industry. While any digital or print source can be used for locating position descriptions, it is recommended that you consider https://www.teamworkonline.com/ and http://www.sportscareersinstitute.com/index.html/index.html.  Both of these websites have been helpful for students seeking positions in the sport or leisure management industry. The second position description should be for another job in the sport or leisure industry that either leads to your dream job or generally interests you. As with the first position description, use a digital or print source to locate a second different position description in the sport or leisure management industry. For this assignment, including the following information for both position descriptions in your submission: occupation or position title, occupation or position duties/responsibilities, education required and preferred, experience needed, skills needed, salary/compensation information, and the source (for websites, the web link) of the position descriptions. In accordance with APA, this assignment should include a cover page with the following information: the title of the assignment, student name, course number, and name, date, and instructor name. Further, formatting should be double-spaced with 1-inch margins and typed in 12-point Times New Roman font. The position descriptions assignment should be submitted for grading via D2L no later than 11:59 PM CT by the given due date. No assignments will be accepted late.

Resume. The resume assignment is the starting point for assisting students in developing a professional resume to be used in securing employment in the sport or leisure management industry. By definition, a resume is a “brief document that summarizes your education, employment history, and experiences that are relevant to your qualifications for a particular job for which you are applying” (Purdue University Writing Lab, 2014, p. 1). The goal of a resume is to market yourself and demonstrate your value to the organization on an interview. A great resume does not simply inform an employer of what you have done; it convinces the employer that you have what it takes to be successful in a particular position or career. Students will be responsible for completing a resume based on the information and criteria provided in the Assignment Materials section. The resume assignment should be submitted for grading via the assignment dropbox by the given due date. No assignments will be accepted late. For additional information regarding the content of a resume, a sample resume, and the resume grading rubric, see the following documents provided in the D2L: Resume Checklist, Resume Example, and Resume Grading Rubric.

Cover Letter. The objective of the cover letter is to enhance your resume—not restate it—by explaining “why you are writing and why you are a good match for the job and the organization” (Purdue University Writing Lab, 2014, p. 1). A strong cover letter requires thorough research of the organization and position job description to which you are applying in order to adapt your letter to demonstrate the value you would provide. Students will be responsible for completing a cover letter based on the information and criteria provided in the Assignment Materials section. The cover letter assignment should be submitted for grading via the assignment dropbox by the given due date. No assignments will be accepted late. For additional information regarding the content of a cover letter, a sample cover letter, and the cover letter grading rubric, see the following documents provided in the D2L: Cover Letter Checklist, Cover Letter Example, and Cover Letter Grading Rubric.

Network Notebook. In building upon the dream job and position descriptions assignments, you will put together a digital network notebook—using the LinkedIn social networking service (https://www.linkedin.com)—of industry contacts that are relevant to your professional career goals in order to create and/or expand your current sport or leisure management industry contacts. Throughout the semester, you will identify and then use LinkedIn to contact a minimum of 10 individuals who could potentially assist you in obtaining work experience in the sport or leisure management industry. In order to properly complete this assignment, you will need to first create a LinkedIn account (if you do not already have one) and “connect” with the Kemmons Wilson School (KWS) LinkedIn account. Using either the Internet and/or LinkedIn, you will then identify industry contacts that are relevant to your professional career goals. Following this, you will use LinkedIn to connect with the selected industry contacts regarding a topic relevant to your future occupational endeavors. The nature of this interaction can include anything from inquiring about positional responsibility (e.g., the skills and experience necessary for becoming a collegiate athletic director) to the application for an internship/occupational position. The network notebook assignment must be completed using Microsoft Excel and include the following information for each individual contact: name, organization, title/position, phone number, email address, LinkedIn contact URL, LinkedIn contact date, and LinkedIn conversation topic. For every item of information not provided, 0.625 points will be deducted from the student’s grade. For instance, if a student does not provide information regarding 1 contact’s phone number, email address, LinkedIn contact URL, LinkedIn contact date, and LinkedIn conversation topic, there will be a deduction of 3.125 points (0.625 points per item x 5 items omitted = 3.125 points) of the 50 total points. This method of deduction will be applied for every item not included for all 10 contacts (10 contacts x 8 items per contact = 80 items). The network notebook assignment should be submitted for grading via eCourseware by the given due date. Should the assignment be submitted in any format besides Microsoft Excel, 10 points will be further deducted from the student’s overall grade. It is imperative that students learn to use basic functions of Microsoft Excel prior to securing employment in the sport or leisure management industry. No assignments will be accepted late. For an example of the content to be included and formatting guidelines, see the Network Notebook Example provided in the D2L.

Quizzes. To ensure students are reading the assigned chapters for the course, 5 online quizzes will be administered periodically throughout the semester. These quizzes will be time restricted and consist of objective (multiple choice, true or false, fill in the blank, matching) questions. The quizzes are meant to measure content knowledge and understanding. Although the use of the textbook and notes is not a good way to control for knowledge and understanding, it cannot be controlled from a distance, so it is allowed and then controlled for with a time constraint. Simply, students cannot have both unlimited time and unlimited use of the textbook and notes to measure knowledge and understanding. The point is to encourage studying and comprehension, not to encourage last-minute skimming of the textbook and notes for an answer. Each quiz will be completed on D2L no later than 11:59 PM CT by the given due date. There will be no make-ups for missed quizzes.

Exams. In addition to the 5 online quizzes, 3 online exams will be administered throughout the semester. Each of the exams will consist of objective (e.g., multiple choice, true or false, fill in the blank, matching) questions. Each exam will cover specified material within the identified module(s). The exams are meant to measure content knowledge and understanding. Although the use of the textbook and notes is not a good way to control for knowledge and understanding, it cannot be controlled from a distance, so it is allowed and then controlled for with a time constraint. Simply, students cannot have both unlimited time and unlimited use of the textbook and notes to measure knowledge and understanding. The point is to encourage studying and comprehension, not to encourage last-minute reading or skimming. Each exam will be completed on eCourseware no later than 11:59 PM CT by the given due date. There will be no make-ups for missed exams.

Discussion Boards. Students are expected to respond to regularly scheduled discussion questions on eCourseware. Class participation involves being clear on your own position and being able to defend it. It also requires a certain amount of openness to alternative perspectives. Participation allows you to learn from colleagues and to help them learn from you. Accordingly, you are expected to analyze, comment upon, question, discuss, and build upon others’ contributions. Good participation is not repeating facts or ignoring the contributions of others. Effective participation will be valued. Students will be required to make a minimum of 2 posts per week: 1 original post (Post 1; due by Wednesday at 11:59 PM CT of week), and 1 post in response to another student’s original post (Post 2; due by Saturday at 11:59 PM CT of week). Discussion topics can be accessed in the upper right-hand portion of the eCourseware homepage. Post 1 should be a minimum of 250 words, and Post 2 should be a minimum of 100 words. There will be a total number of 10 discussion topics throughout the semester. As such, each post will be worth 2.5 points (2.5 points/post x 2 posts/topic x 10 topics = 50 points). Students will not be permitted to post a comment following the stated due date (e.g., credit will not be given for Post 1 if posted after Wednesday at 11:59 PM CT of the given week, nor will credit be given for Post 2 if posted after Saturday at 11:59 PM CT of the given week).

Field Experience. In order to become familiar with careers in the sport or leisure management industry and to help students learn the goals, purposes, operational methods, financing, staffing, clientele served, programs, and facilities of different agencies, hands-on experience is imperative. In an effort to convey the significance of such experience, each student will be required to complete a minimum of 40 work hours within a sport or leisure organization as a field experience. Students will be required to submit field experience forms to verify their attendance and participation in the field experience. Students who do not complete the minimum 40 hours of field experience cannot pass the course. Further, failure to submit the Field Experience Agency Information Form by the determined due date will result in a 20 point deduction from the student’s final point total. For those students completing their field experience at multiple sites, Field Experience Agency Information Forms will need to be submitted for each site. To receive credit for the field experience, all required forms must be completely filled out and submitted by the day of Exam 3. Forms that are late or not completely filled out will not be accepted. For additional information on field experience forms, log sheets, and placements sites, see the following documents provided in the eCourseware shell: Field Experience Agency Information Form, Field Experience Hour Log, Field Experience Evaluation Form, and Field Experience Placement Sites.
