ASSIGNMENT 1 - REFLECTIVE LEARNING: FORUM ACTIVITY
The first assignment for the module is your Forum Posts and Comments on the posts of others. These will be monitored and assessed by your tutors and the Deputy Director of Studies. You must complete this in real time as you complete each session. Please don't try to leave it all to the end as this defeats the purpose of interacting with others on the course and you will lose marks. Please ensure you have completed all Forum posts and comments by the due date below. There are some Tips and Hints from the Session on Study Day 1 in the Resources section below.
Due by: the end of each session
All sessions to be completed by: 26th April 2024
ASSIGNMENT 2 - RESOURCE FOR OTHERS & COMMENTARY
Part A: Resource for Others
In your assigned small group, design and present a video bible study resource that could be used by any church home group to introduce the prophet Amos, his message and its relevance for today (you should NOT actually deliver this to a group, it is a video resource, so is meant to be available for groups to use without you being present). This should be a single session (imagine the Diocese is producing a series of these overview resources for churches on all the prophetic books and you have been asked to produce the one on Amos). Don't ask participants to read the whole book first - you should give them key passages to read during the session.
You should use the knowledge you have gained from the module, putting it into an engaging and informative session that includes discussion questions. The session should last no more than 25 minutes (don't make it too much shorter though) and it must be videoed (please do NOT embed audio in a powerpoint file, it's almost impossible to get it to play, use video technology). You may also produce handouts and extra resources if you wish. The video and any extra resources should be submitted to one member's GoogleDrive folder (decide together which member this will be, and then that member should email email@example.com to ask for the the link to the folder). In the Resources section you will find an example of this assignment - please don't just copy it! You will also find a Guidance sheet to help you with the assignment, please read it before you start.
Length: 15 - 25 minutes maximum

Part B: Commentary
Individually, write or audio record a rationale for your project. Include a brief description of the approach you decided to take together, what you decided to include in the resource and, crucially, why, how you feel it went when you put it altogether as well as how you found working in a group. Reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the finished resource and what you might do differently on another occasion. Each student should submit to their own GoogleDrive folder (email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the link). You may write this part of the assignment or record it as an audio/video file. Make sure you include a full bibliography of any books/videos you read/watched to help you with your part of the session.
Length: 1000 word or 10 minutes.
