The six-credit version of the course include three interconnected assignments. The assignments enable students to document their motives, expectations, initial leadership principles, experiences on team building, experiences on leading a team in the event, and finally reflecting on these experiences, and fine-tuning their principles. The reflections are supported with appropriate articles on voluntary motivation, team building and leadership. The assignments serve as preparation for the workshops as well. The six credit participants will have a group assignment which will be given at the First Academic Workshop in the 18th of October.
You will find articles through Aalto Finna (https://aalto.finna.fi/) or Google Scholar. May you have problems to find the article, send a message email@example.com, and we'll find a solution.
All assignments must be reported to the same document. Each essay will form one section of the final report. Title of the document is: Reflections on the Slush Leadership Experience. Write your name and student number on the title page. Use page numbering. Use a basic font and a font size (e.g. Calibri, 11 pt); line spacing 1,3; basic margins (e.g.2,54 all). The format can be .pdf or .docx. Name the document as SLE_essay_"assignment number"_"familyname"(for example: SLE_essay_1_Ylitalo). The course language is English but you can also write your essays in Finnish or Swedish. The essay must be written in full sentences (no bullet points -style). The length of the essay is not limited. More reflective you are in your considerations more beneficial the exercise will be for you!
