ASSESSMENT CONTENT:

An essay or short paper in which you should research the theory of tacit
knowledge, critically discuss this theory, and apply what you learn
a) to your own life
b) to a case in one organisation.

The essay should be PRINTED DOUBLE-SIDED. The contents of the essay should
be a discussion of the following (the phrases may be used as headings):

§1. Theory About Tacit Knowledge.
Here read what others have written about tacit knowledge in books and
journal papers, summarise it in your own words.
Conditions: You may use material from the module as a starting point
if you wish, but you should search for and add other material from
other authors. Wikipedia may be used to help you begin finding
authors if you wish, but you should not use text or content from
Wikipedia, and you should find authors not mentioned on Wikipedia
pages. You must give references to all that you write.
§2. Critical Analysis of Theory

Here you should discuss the theory you have written in §1, making
critique of it. Being Critical means not taking what is said by the
authors for granted, but questioning it. You can question: how well the
topic is understood, whether there are any contradictions in it, how well
it works in practice, whether it is valid only for limited contexts or
people, how well it agrees with other material, whether it does justice to
the topic, what assumptions it makes. You might find some of Dooyeweerd’s
aspects useful to refer to in your critical evaluation, for example to find
different things about which to critique the theory (e.g. whether it is
socially appropriate, whether it is economic, whether it is just, etc.).
§3. Examples of tacit knowledge in everyday life.
Reflect on your own life, at work or elsewhere, to find knowledge that
you personally hold tacitly. Referring to your critique in §2, discuss to
what extent these examples fit the theory that you discussed in §1.
I expect two parts to this section:
» Describe and explain the tacit knowledge you hold.
» Discuss how, and to what extent, that tacit knowledge fits, or does
not fit, some of the theory you discussed in §1. Use your tacit
knowledge to illustrate some of your points of critique

§4. Tacit knowledge in the organisation.
Here choose one specific organisation and discuss what tacit knowledge
the organisation holds. With reference to your critique in §2, discuss to
what extent the theory in §1 holds.
The organisation you choose could be a business, public or voluntary
organisation, some part of the University of Salford, even a family (your
own?). Obtain your information from literature or by talking with people
(e.g. university staff or family members) to find their tacit knowledge.
I expect three parts to this section:
» Describe the organisation
» Describe and explain the tacit knowledge and in what way it is tacit
» Discuss how, and to what extent, organisational tacit knowledge fits,
or does not fit, some of the theory you discussed in §1. Use your
tacit knowledge to illustrate some of your points of critique

§4. Tacit knowledge in the organisation.
