Unit Description
This unit examines the external and internal factors that influence people's behaviour in a purchase situation. The unit provides a conceptual understanding of consumer behaviour, integrating theories from psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology and economics. The discipline-specific knowledge students should gain from this unit is to understand how and why consumers, including those from South-East Asia, make decisions to purchase, use and eventually dispose of products and services. This should also in result in a better understanding of consumerism issues in both for-profit and non-profit sectors.

Class Test
Due Date: Week 7 Weight: 15%
Subm ission

The aim of this assessment is to give you feedback on your level of understanding of consumer behaviour principles. There will be one multiple-choice question test consisting of 80 questions and will be 90 minutes long. The class test is worth 15% and will examine material covered up to and including the date of the test. Unlike group reports this work is done individually.
Extension

There will be no deferrals for these tests. Students who cannot attend this class test will have a higher weighting on their exam. For example, a student who cannot attend the class test would have an exam worth an extra 15% of their grade. Please bear in mind that a doctor's certificate is required for students unable to attend the in-class test

Assessed Coursework
Due Date: Every tutorial Weight: 15%
Subm ission

At the beginning of each class, students are to submit no more than two pages of typed answers to the tutorial questions. These will be marked and returned the following week. The goal of assessed coursework is to reward preparation and to have students more informed in tutorials. Assessed coursework will be marked from 0 (no report), 2.5 (attempted but still needs help) to 5 (attempted successfully most exercises) to a maximum of 15%. This work will be collected in the tutorial on a random basis, three (3) times during the semester. You should expect your work to be collected every tutorial.
Extension

No extensions will be granted. Students who have not submitted the task prior to the deadline will be awarded a mark of 0 for the task, except for cases in which an application for special consideration is made and approved.

Group Projects (3)
Due Date: Week 5, 9, 12 Weight: 30%
Subm ission

This assessment seeks to ascertain students’ abilities to work in collaboration and apply the consumer principles learnt in the course to different cultural settings. Students will arrange themselves into groups of five by completing the online Group signup tool on Moodle. You are unable to submit an assignment online until this is done. You need also submit a group contract (see Policy on Group Projects) before you start your group project. At the end of semester

Page 6 of 20

you are also required to complete an individual evaluation of your contribution versus that of other group members. This is a confidential online survey accessed using the Assessment tool. Students who do not complete a group contract at the beginning and an individual evaluation have no recourse (cause of complaint) for their final group project mark. Responsibility for the management of groups is the students own. These groups must be within the same tutorial. Each group will submit three assignments. Each assignment covers the application of consumer behaviour theories in different countries in the South East Asian region. (See the 'one stop' tips document on iLearn for further information about these reports.) At least one real world example of each the consumer behaviour theory and concept discussed in the relevant chapters of both texts should be included in your report. The example could be print, scanned images, a link to You-tube video. A minimum of five academic journals should be cited and correctly referenced. These group reports are submitted online to Moodle after the Wiki has been compiled. Students are required to check for plagiarism using the Turnitin tool also available from i-learn. In the end, the assignment that is submitted online for grading is also assessed for plagiarism, using Turnitin and a variety of other online tools. Any group with a similarity rating of 30% and above will automatically receive a grade of zero. The use of previous student papers will receive a grade -1, for each reference to a student paper found via Turnitin. Group Report 1: China, Chapters 1-4 of Schiffman. Compare and contrast as to how two (2) aspects or theories of consumer behaviour as discussed in Schiffman applies to this country and how it differs from that in Australia. Show how this may provide a marketing opportunity for an Australian exporter. This is due at the end of week 5, 30th August at 11.59 p.m. Group Report 2: South Korea, Chapters 5-9 of Schiffman. Compare and contrast as to how two (2) aspects or theories of consumer behaviour as discussed in Schiffman applies to this country and how it differs from that in Australia. Show how this may provide a marketing opportunity for a Australian exporter. This is due at the end of week 9, 11 of October at 11.59 p.m. Group Report 3: Malaysia, Chapters 10-13 of Schiffman. Compare and contrast as to how two (2) aspects or theories of consumer behaviour as discussed in Schiffman applies to this country and how it differs from that in Australia. Show how this may provide a marketing opportunity for an Australian exporter. This is due at the end of week 12, 1st of November at 11.59 p.m. A marking template for the assignments is available from Moodle. Your analysis must be substantiated by the use of relevant illustrative examples that show the application of relevant consumer behaviour theories. Write no more than five pages on each assignment (not including references and examples). As this is a group assessment, procedures as attached to the end of the course outline must be followed by all students. All referencing must be the Harvard style see http://www.lib.monash.edu.au/tutorials/citing/harvard.html. One member of the group submits the assignment on behalf of the group. The assignments will be assessed online by your tutor and marked with an online grade form, which is similar to the marking template in this unit outline. Students can access their grades and feedback from Moodle. All individual grades for group reports will be moderated by peer evaluation and/or the judgement of the tutor/lecturer. We use an overall peer assessment survey at the end of semester. The lecturer has the final say in the adjustment of group-work marks taking into account peer assessment ratings. You may be removed from the group, if in the opinion of others and on the decision of the lecturer you are not contributing. This may be based on peer evaluation. Students in this situation will submit all group work on an individual basis. There is to be no-free riding in this course In disputes over contributions to group work, you have 24 hours to provide physical evidence of your contribution to the unit coordinator. If you cannot do so the decision to moderate your group mark and or remove you from the group stands. All assignments are to be submitted online no later than 11.59 p.m. Friday on the week of semester they are due.

Extension

There will be a deduction of 20% of the total marks for each 24 hour period or part thereof that the submission is late (for example, 25 hours late in submission - 40% penalty). This does not apply for cases in which an application for special consideration is approved.

Teaching and Learning Strategy
Teaching is delivered in weekly lectures and tutorials. Learning activities include individual and group tasks that are to be completed during private study and in tutorials. Participants are expected to read in advance of lectures, participate in tutorials and complete all set tasks.
It is to your benefit to attend all lectures and tutorials. The unit coordinator is happy to discuss issues with you and to clarify points made in class as long as you make the effort to understand the point first by attending lectures and reading the prescribed readings. Please do not ask the coordinator to assist you in understanding a point if you have not attended the lecture or read the materials. This course forms part of your professional education. We feel that it is important that you experience the interactions with ideas, your peers and your tutor that are provided through the workshops. Indeed, it seems to us that it is not possible to engage adequately with this unit, and to fulfil its objectives, without completing the tutorial activities. While most students willingly accept this participation as a part of their professional responsibility some, for various reasons, do not participate fully. Therefore, we have found it necessary to make satisfactory lecture and workshop attendance an expected and measured component of the unit. Attendance at lectures is strongly recommended. If you are unable to attend a lecture or series of lectures for any reason, it is strongly suggested that you discuss this with the lecturer or unit coordinator to ensure that you have not been disadvantaged. For example, it may be suggested that you obtain a medical certificate as evidence that you experienced health problems during semester. Of course, all the material covered in the lectures and tutorials is assessable in the Group Reports and Class test exam. Attendance at all 12 tutorials is mandated. An attendance record for all students will be maintained and your preparation and participation in these classes will be assessed. Note: You are required to attend at least 10 out of the 13 tutorials. Failure to do so without an adequate reason (illness or special consideration) will result in a grade of FA 0.

Policy on Group Projects
Unit Policy on Group Reports
· · Group Reports are an important means of students learning teamwork and help foster collaborative learning. Skills learnt in Group Reports are considered invaluable by employers as most tasks assigned it the workplaces are

done by groups not individuals. Students in groups, however, should learn to manage themselves and resolve conflict that may occur with Group Reports. In particular students should · · · · All sign the group charter and give a copy of it to their tutor. Notify your tutor of any conflict or unresolvable problems with the group. Compete the peer assessment form and include with the group project. In the event that student received a poor student assessment on group project, that student has 24 hours from the

time of being notified by course coordinator to produce evidence of their efforts in the project. If they fail to do no, the student’s grade as amended by their group peers will stand. · If a group is unable to resolve any differences then the course coordinator may split the group or reallocate its

members. GROUP CHARTER (This is to be submitted online using the Assignment tool before the first group presentation). It is a normal business practice to get all agreements that are designed to be binding on the parties involved, put into writing. It is suggested that you decide what problems you wish to see overcome and provide some solutions as to how it could be done. It is further suggested that you now take the time to establish the acceptable group norms and behaviours that you will enforce by exclusion from the group, for any and all individuals who do not conform. Below is a ‘group contract’ that will bind you all to what YOU ALL decide, till the group is dissolved when the final seminar is concluded. You need to hand a copy of this charter to your tutor by the end of week 3 of the course. GROUP CONTRACT It is agreed that the members of this group will: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 It is freely signed to by the parties who have signed below, that all group members listed as signatories, are bound by their signatures to carry out all duties and obligations and in return, they bind all other to give the same assurance.

have read and signed this understanding that the ultimate sanction of dismissal from the group will require me to do all the assignments in the outline on my own to the same standard as a group of 4 would. GROUP CHARTER This is a chapter that you, both as individuals and as groups, have with regard to the behaviour and conduct of the group and the members that comprise it. Many of you may have reservations about working with groups, you may feel it is culturally inappropriate to work with someone of another culture. While all these may be valid reasons to you, they do not necessarily find credence among others. As the world into which you are going to work, will demand closer working relationships, across cultures, genders and all manner of diversity, it is advisable you learn to learn from the opportunities that arise from group work. Be they good, or bad. What are your rights? Well, for each right you have, comes a corresponding obligation. Each group member has a right to expect a certain standard of performance from each group member and each member a certain level of performance from the rest of the group. Consider what is listed below:

RIGHTS THE GROUP Has the right to expect members to be on time. Has the right to expect high quality work. Has the right to have all members in attendance at all group meetings. Has the right to expect full input and participation from each group member. Has the right to dismiss a group member who chooses not to perform. Has the right to debate another’s point of view, but without criticising the individual. Has the right to expect the full and strenuous support of all members, at all times. Has the right to allow other group members to hold different opinions.

OBLIGATIONS THE MEMBER You have the obligation to be on time.

You have the obligation to provide work of high quality. You have the obligation to inform the group, in ADVANCE, if you cannot attend. You have the obligation to speak up FREQUENTLY, to add your own contribution. You have the obligation to support your group’s decision even if it means a friend is involved. You have the obligation to critically analyse the statements of others, but without being critical of the person. You have the obligation to deliver that support, at all times.

You have the obligation to act as a ‘devil’s advocate’ when you feel the situation requires you to do so.

Evaluation of Group Performance (This is done as an online survey accessed via Moodle at the end of the semester)

Just and Unjust Wars

... When a loved one is deployed overseas to defend his/her country, all that can get them through, is knowing that their family is waiting for them and hoping and praying that nothing happens to them. The death of a loved one, which many fortunate people, don’t have to experience, is extremely hard on a family and delivers a crushing blow which can cause anyone to break down. When a family member passes away from being sent overseas, it can take a toll on how someone feels about a war and if they can say they honestly believe that it was worth it. Some families have had past relatives or themselves were in the military, and now their children are and understand the sacrifices made since they were in that position at one time. To John Kekes (2010), the violent actions of war are the actions of “individual human beings directed against other human beings.”...

Personal Philosophy

...Introduction This paper explores three philosophical issues. The concepts examined are personal identity, virtue ethics, and ethical relativism. A personal philosophy in relation to each concept is identified and described. In conclusion, philosophical findings are incorporated into a personal view on the ultimate meaning of life. Philosophical Issues Personal Identity Personal identity of the most basic nature is “what makes one the person one is” (Olson, 2010). This basic nature then leads to the complexities of personal identity. Complexities include questions such as: * Who am I? * What is it to be a person? * What does it take for a person to persist from one time to another – that is, for the same person to exist at different times?  * How do we find out who is who?  * What am I? * How could I have been?  * How different could I have been from the way I actually am? (2010) These questions are crucial to discovering self-purpose of life. Hume’s philosophy is that personal identity is “nothing but a bundle or collection of different perceptions” and “too inconstant” (n.d.). Several philosophers disagree, arguing that “when the soul and the body are united, then nature orders the soul to rule and govern, and the body to obey and serve” (Chaffee, 2011, p. 91). There are many theories of philosophy pertaining to personal identity and social identity. In most cases, the compulsion to rationalize identity by understanding and knowing who...

...Hello class my name is Kanegra Jones but I prefer to be called KeKe. I am the mother of 5 children I have 4 daughters and 1 son. I was inspired to go back to school by my 11 year old daughter because she is very smart and she asked me why don't I give school another try so that was what I did. My children ages are 14, 12, 10, 8, and 5. My son is the baby of the bunch. I live currently in Powder Springs GA. I have only been here for about 5 months and I am still learning this city. I moved here from Memphis TN which I lived there from age 14 up until about 5 months ago. I was born in Mississippi I am currently working part time as a school bus driver which I have been doing for about the last 12 years. I have been doing this so long because i am very convenient for me being that I am a single mother and I have no family here. It was the same in TN I had no family so driving buses was very convenient and helpful because when school was out I was off and when the summer came I didn't have to work so it was very helpful to me I am a very quiet person I like to keep to myself and I do not bother anyone. I don't smoke I do not drink and do not go out. So I basically live a simple life and I try to keep it that way. I am here at the UPOX taking up Psychology because I would like to help and understand why people have some of the problem and learn ways to help them help themselves function better without always giving them medicine to control their symptoms....

A Dream House

...Keke Weathers Dr.Sarthou Composition II November 6, 2015 Emotions, Emotions, Emotions When you w3ake up in the morning, what are some of the things you do before heading out of the door? Most people look at the weather before they leave home .The weather sets the mood for the day. It determines what a person is going to wear and even a person’s attitude for the day. For example, if it is fall time and rainy out, a person might wear rain boots and a sweater. Now think of the colors of fall; orange, brown, yellow and red, and the colors of the leaves. The color brown can make one feel cozy, snug, and safe. Orange is associated with stimulation, warmth, and happiness. Thanksgiving is during the fall season and it is a time to stuff your face, to be surrounded by family, and to be thankful. And these colors help to set the vibe. Everyone is cheerful , full of laughter, and hungry. These feelings are asscosiated with the color yellow. Red symbolizes love and life and is mainly what people are thankful for on thanksgiving. Now back to the wet and slippery situation. When it is dark and stormy outside people tend to feel drowsy, sleepy, or even sad. Spring time gets the most rain typically in the western hemisphere. Spring time is one of the most crucial seasons for suicide. In the U.S. at least 30,000 people commit suicide each year. The suicide rates worldwide outweigh deaths involving accidents and homocides combined. IT is a popular belief that suicided rates peak during the...

Personal Narrative

...we saw that we had finally arrived. Smiling from ear to ear, in awe of the humongous sign with an elephant on it read, “KALAHARI.” We pulled to the front and started to unload the cars. My mother and my aunt got a room together so of course the fun was just start to begin. We all got changed and met back up in the lobby. All of the older girls, which were my 5 cousins and I, were allowed to go off on our own. Jumping for joy, we ran all over talking about what we wanted to do first. Cashe has always been bossy so her being the controlling one said, “we’re getting on the cheetah race.” Tetee was sassy and didn’t agree with anyone, so she rolled her eyes and responded, “I don’t want to get on that, you always want everything to go your way.” Keke, who was the oldest, suggested that we get something to eat and decide what we wanted to do after. Everyone loves food, so of course, we agreed. There was this place in the center of the water park call the Zulu Grill. They had all kinds of food but Cashe and I chose a huge container of fully loaded nachos with everything. Ground beef, bacon, jalapenos, tomatoes, black olives, banana peppers, chili, extra cheese, and sour cream. We were in heaven and devoured them all. After everyone was finished we decided to get on the roller coaster. As we are walking to the ride I felt this quirky feeling in my stomach. I stopped and told them to come to the restroom with me. They all talked me into holding it since we were almost there. We all had partners...

The study became imperative based on the debilitating effects of poverty which often manifests in loss of hope, aspirations, malnutrition and sometimes sudden death. The startling 69% national poverty level and 73.6% rate in Ebonyi state is a clear indication that poverty is still very high in Nigeria. The study therefore evaluated NAPEP’s performance in the area of human capital development, infrastructure facilities, access to safe drinking water, sanitation and access to basic education which are some of the parameters for measuring poverty level. A descriptive survey design was adopted with a sample population of 400 which spread across the six local governments studied. The major instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire, which was distributed to the respondents and a total number of 380 questionnaire were duly filled and returned representing 95% of the sample population. The data collected was analyzed with statistical tables, percentage calculations...

This problem can be fruitfully approached from the perspective of Isaiah Berlin’s notion of “value pluralism.” According to William Galston, value pluralism privileges a form of liberalism that is maximally accommodating of nonliberal groups and their practices. I agree that pluralism...

Freedom of Expression and the Brooklyn Museum’s “Sensation” Exhibit For over a century public galleries in Western democracies have been forums not only for displaying works by “old Masters” but also for presenting art that is new, as well as ideas that are sometimes radical and controversial. In the United States that tradition has been under wide attack in the past generation. Various political and first line of all religious leaders have criticized exhibits of works of art that they claim paragraphs indented offend against notions of public decency, and have crusaded against providing public funding for the creation or display of such works. The largest such controversy of the past generation was sparked by the display of a painting entitled “The Holy Virgin Mary,” by the British text left justified and ragged right artist Chris Ofili at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999. Though the image appears inoffensive at a distance, the artist has affixed to the painting cutouts of body parts from magazines, and has incorporated...

...Budget 2012 – Transformation or Retrogression? 2011 December 15 by Nasir El-Rufai [pic][pic][pic]Let me start by apologizing for the inevitable absence of this column in the past two weeks; just as I would also like to express sincere gratitude to all those that visited, called or sent condolence messages to my family for our bereavement. Moving on to the subject of this discourse, in the light of the passionate debate on the removal of fuel subsidy with which the country has been bedeviled in previous couple of months; the issue of whether the 2012 Appropriation Bill is a budget of fiscal consolidation or retrogression is as timely as it is topical. Transformation is a huge word that the Jonathan administration thoughtlessly uses to describe its aspirations. Is there anything transformational about the 2012 Budget proposals? In the course of presenting the Draft Budget, President Jonathan in paragraph 1 of 81 of his address states “this budget is a stepping stone to the transformation of our economy and country in our walk to economic freedom” and concludes in paragraph 76 thereof that “Mr. Senate President……the Proposal I lay before you this day seeks to sustain sound micro-economic growth that will translate to achieving socio-economic transformation, and gainful employment for our people”. Meanwhile, and perhaps by divine providence, in the afternoon of the same Tuesday, 13th of December; the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Nigeria’s biggest power generating...
