A critical response goes beyond simple summary and description. It requires critical thought
and engagement with current literature on the topic in order to develop a clear and logical
‘academic argument.’ You will need to choose a workshop question from weeks 1-5, review
current theory and research on the topic and develop a critical response. It is recommended
that you use the Griffith library catalogue to access scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles.

Additional Instructions
Academic Integrity
Plagiarism in assignments is detected using software that highlights text, which is similar or
identical to another source. Developing your skills in paraphrasing and integrating
information from multiple sources is key to avoiding unintentional plagiarism. Changing a
few words or rearranging sentences does not ‘hide’ plagiarism from the software, which still
highlights the similar parts of the sentence. Students who breach the Griffith University’s
policy on academic integrity will be reported to the Academic Integrity Management System.
Examples of a breach of academic integrity are:
 Paraphrasing a paper from a source text, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic
form, without appropriate acknowledgement; and
 Word for word copying, cutting or pasting statements from a single source or multiple
sources or piecing together work of others and representing them as original work 1003GIR GLOBALISATION THE ASIA PACIFIC AND AUSTRALIA
