  • You will be required to send your lecturer a reference list, using Harvard referencing format, at least 24 hours prior to your allocated debate date and time.
  • No Power Point or written form of the debate will be required.

PRESENTATION TASK

In groups of two, you will debate a contemporary issue relating to the healthcare industry against an opposing group. In preparation for the debate, you will research the debate question from both perspectives: the affirmative and opposing teams—each student will research one argument from the affirmative and opposing perspective. Arguments must be underpinned by sound evidence. On the day, your debate perspective will be chosen by the tutor.

During the debate, you will be required to use the Policy debate structure that has been introduced during the module. Each student will present their arguments within a time frame and be prepared for cross-examination from the opposing team. Each student must contribute 5 minutes overall, and the tutor will chair the debate.

Debate Topics

Groups will choose one of the following questions to debate:

  1. Artificial intelligence in health and social care – friend or foe?
  2. Women should be granted sick leave when experiencing menstrual ill health.
  3. The NHS should invest more resources into becoming environmentally sustainable.

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

You will be assessed on your capacity to develop a well-supported argument for or against the selected debate topic. In addition to presenting at least one well- resourced argument during the main argument, you will also be expected to participate in the cross-examination or rebuttal.

Your debate will be assessed against the learning outcomes. You can find more information about the marks in table 1.

A Code of Conduct (CoC) violation can result in you losing marks for the assessed debate.

The CoC states that students must:

  • Behave in a respectful and courteous manner towards the chair and other participants
  • Avoid interrupting other participants; speak only when allocated to by number / the chair
  • Not  engage  in  verbally  /  physically  offensive  behaviour  (e.g.  swearing, shouting, prejudiced / personal comments)
  • Avoid reading from a pre-prepared statement; the lecturer may ask you to stop, reduce your marks, or terminate your attempt altogether
  • Abide by any other rules present within ARU, London disciplinary regulations not listed above
  • Elucidate contemporary issues relating to the Healthcare Industry

While you may bring notes along to assist you, you must not read a prepared argument in place of presenting your own live. This assessment is designed to test your ability to participate in structured debates and present a sound researched argument, not whether you can read out loud.

READING REQUIREMENT

Students are required to evidence their argument using at least three academic sources from the ARU digital library. These can include:

  • Journal articles relevant to the debate topic.
  • Relevant reports/data/information from credible websites and organisations (please refer to the resources section on the VLE for more guidance)
  • Academic books/textbooks
  • Kortext
  • Academic databases and/or Google Scholar

Artificial intelligence in health and social care – friend or foe? Women should be granted sick leave when experiencing menstrual ill health. The NHS should invest more resources into becoming environmentally sustainable.

ANGLIA RUSKIN UNIVERSITY GENERIC ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND MARKING STANDARDS LEVEL 6 (was level 3)

Level 6 is characterised by an expectation of students’ increasing autonomy in relation to their study and developing skill sets. Students are expected to demonstrate problem solving skills, both theoretical and practical. This is supported by an understanding of appropriate theory; creativity of expression and thought based in individual judgement; and the ability to seek out, invoke, analyse and evaluate competing theories or methods of working in a critically constructive and open manner. Output is articulate, coherent and skilled in the appropriate medium, with some students producing original or innovative work in their specialism.
