Week 4 Discussion Post

On Week 4 Forum, post your response to one of the following questions:

Explain how important training is for security personnel. Discuss the similarities and differences between security training and law enforcement training.  This is your opinion and viewpoints on the importance of security training. You can provide examples and analogies to back up your point.

Explain how security personnel training can be evaluated. How do you measure the effectiveness of the training? What are the inherent limitations in measuring the effectiveness of training?

How has the Information Age affected content and delivery of training programs?

What are the strengths of the case history  method for training? What are its weaknesses?

What are the differences and similarities between training, education, and awareness? Provide scenarios for each.

Compare and contrast two training techniques. Provide specific examples where each is effective and ineffective.

Your answer should be 2-3 paragraphs in length with proper attention given to spelling and grammar. Try not to repeat a question answered by another student. You can use the textbook and supplemental reading, but you should also include at least one Internet site or outside reference that provides information on your topic. Once you have submitted your initial post, read each of your classmates' initial posts and respond to at least four of them (by Friday, Jan 6). You should be posting on multiple days. In your response, provide your comments and any additional information you might have. Remember to cite your sources.

Directions: Each student must respond to a minimum of four other students’ threaded discussion postings in a “substantive and meaningful” manner. Do not simply agree or disagree – provide a quality response that reflects critical thinking. To foster learning, “professional and constructive” criticism is encouraged when responding to your classmates.

The weekly discussion questions, to allow time for students to respond, must be answered by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday of each week. Please see the discussion evaluation section in the syllabus for detailed expectations and directions of how your discussion board postings and overall participation is evaluated. 
Reminders: Each student must respond to the weekly questions. Discussion postings should reflect some new or original information – do not just regurgitate data or opinion posted by previous students. The quality of your effort will be considered when grading discussion postings.
This assignment is worth 100 points total.

Correcting Poor Work Case Study

Week 4 Written Assignments
In one Word document, complete the following:

View the “Correcting Poor Work” case study. The link is located above.

Once you view all three scenarios, discuss which scenario did you see Joel properly correcting Tim’s poor work? Why did you pick that scenario?

What were Joel’s behaviors? Please give your opinion of how correcting poor work should be taken care of as well as how you would approach correcting a subordinate’s poor work. 

If you have encountered this type of situation, please relate this in your work.

Reminders: Students are required to submit assignments with a name, course name/number and page numbers on your assignments. Please double space your work, and re-state the question. Grading is facilitated when the assignment submission is well structured, and the questions (opposed to your answers) have been bolded. File Naming Convention: Students are required to submit assignments with their last name, followed by the week’s assignment; e.g. smith1.2. Microsoft Word documents only. Late submitters will be penalized.

Weekly written assignments will be due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday at the end of each week. Specific assignments will be posted each week throughout the course. Your grade will be predicated on the quality of your thinking and writing - NOT the length of your writing. Too many words are usually a sign of poor editing, and too few words are a sign of poor analysis. 
This assignment is worth 100 points total.

Week 4 Journal
Each student will complete “weekly” entries into a well-organized journal that reflects how the weekly coursework (reading and assignment) and discussion has impacted their personal and professional lives. Essentially, the journal - akin to a personal diary, should capture the meaningful and significant aspects of the course which generated student analysis and thought. Your weekly journal entry will be due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday at the end of each week. 
This assignment is worth 100 points total.
