What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

Welcome to HRMGT300, Women and Management. This paper examines women's organisational experiences and employment outcomes. Women make up approximately half of the labour force; yet their organisational experiences, and employment and career outcomes differ significantly from men's. The focus of this paper is threefold. First, we explore the relationship between women's unpaid and paid work. Second, we explore and problematise women's labour market outcomes in terms of the jobs they occupy, their pay, and their slow advancement to senior managerial levels. Third, we review and critique developments in legislative and organisational policies aimed at redressing these disparate organisational outcomes. The overriding aim of this paper is to critique contemporary research on gendered organisational processes and practices, and to empower students to develop personal and organisational strategies to overcome gendered inequities in employment.

This is the Moodle page in which you will find the resources you need to navigate through the fundamentals of HRMGT300.

How this paper will be taught

Edit How this paper will be taught Content

This paper has two attendance options and is designed using flipped principles

Attendance Options

Attendance options must be chosen at the start of the course (see the link in Moodle)

  1. The in-class, in-person attendance option offers face-to-face lectures held on the Hamilton campus (see timetable for the classroom)
  2. The onlineoption is available for those who cannot attend lectures in-person. Students attending online are expected to access course material via Moodle and complete the activities embedded in lecture notes. Lecture summaries will be uploaded at the end of each week .

The Flipped Principle Design and Student Expectations

The flipped components of the paper, as outlined below, are designed to help students navigate the course, regardless of attendance choice. These flipped elements include two three-hour seminar-styled lectures per week supported by weekly preparation activities and readings that provide important contextual background information.

  1. Seminar-styled lecture: The seminar-styled lectures combine activities, information sharing (e.g., PowerPoint) and student-based discussions. PowerPoint notes are posted to Moodle before class and lecture. Online students are expected to follow the instructions embedded in the PowerPoint notes. Lecture summary recordings are posted at the end of the each week. Lectures are interactive and attendance is highly recommended. If attending via the in-class option please bring a device to access online resources and engage in the activities. Online students are expected to complete the lecture activities in the order that they are presented in the lecture PowerPoint slides.
  2. Preparation Activities: The lecture preparation activities are posted in Moodle within each Lecture Block. It is highly recommended that these activities are completed before coming to class or watching the recorded lecture summaries.
  3. Readings: Weekly readings have been selected to support lectures. An extensive list of readings is available via the library course Reading List. These readings are arranged by topic and labelled as essential, recommended, or optional. Everyone is expected to read the essential articles and at least one recommended reading per topic. You may allocate the recommended articles among small self-selected reading groups to enrich class discussions. The optional articles may be personally interesting and/or useful for assignments. In addition to prescribed readings, students need to self-source material for the assignments. The Library Reading List can be found on the library website and accessed using the link available here.

Office Hours: Office hours are available in person (MSB4.37), via Zoom, and via the office hour forum where posted questions will be answered during office hours.

Assessments: All assessments are submitted online via Moodle

How you will be assessed

Edit How you will be assessed Content

The written assessments are designed to develop your understanding of topics beyond what is presented in the lecture. This means that you must reference appropriate material. At the senior undergraduate level, paraphrasing lecture discussions or referencing lecture notes (e.g.,PowerPoint slides) are deemed inappropriate references and typically attract low to failing grades.

Please refer to the general guidelines on how to achieve grades later in the course outline and the specific assessment rubrics on Moodle when developing your assignments and reviewing your feedback on assignments.

All written assessments are online submit via Moodle. You will find written feedback by going to your returned assignments. General feedback relating to the themes evident across all assignments will be posted to Moodle.
