Task: Critically reflect on how your understanding of knowledge management and related concepts has changed since you started this module.
In your answer you should cover:
- The nature of knowledge and how it is conceptualised, and the practical significance this has for its management within organisations
- Your understanding of the key concepts and practices of knowledge management and their relevance in different situations
- Your understanding of the role and principles of learning in individual and group contexts

The essay you produce should be well written and supported by appropriate argument and evidence. The answer should be clearly structured. Before starting you will need to familiarise yourself with the topic. The teaching material, set text, and reading list are helpful sources. Summon and Google Scholar should also be used to find relevant articles from appropriate journals. Please ensure that your essay is properly referenced.
The University standard referencing system is APA 6th style. The link below is to the library guidance on referencing and it is recommended you use these resources to ensure your references are in the correct format. http://www.hud.ac.uk/library/finding-info/informationskills/evaluation/referencing/
It is essential that you reference all material that you use within your written assignment whether it is a direct quote, or you have used the source to support your discussion. Referencing correctly will avoid plagiarism, which has serious penalties. Referencing correctly demonstrates that you have read widely to support your work. Your essay should be based on researched academic material that requires referencing. It is also expected that your essay is heavily informed by elements from the topics that we have discussed in this module.
