TikTok: Creativity, Collaboration, and the Art of Effecting Change

Blogger Eugene Wei astutely states that TikTok relies on a network effect of creativity, meaning “…that every
additional user on TikTok makes every other user more creative.”
TikTok has a strong form of this type of network effect. They explicitly lower the barrier to the literal
remixing ofeveryone else’s content. In their app, they have a wealth of features that make it dead simple
to grab any element from another TikTok and incorporate it into a new TikTok. (Wei, “American Idle.”)
Please write a five-paragraph essay on the topics below. Please make sure your essay is at least 700 words:

  1. Paragraph One: “Innovation compounds as more ideas from more people collide.” (Wei, American
    Idle.”) Describe a series of videos on TikTok that are a collaboration between three or more people.
    Discuss the ‘network effect of creativity’ as explained above. Explain why the collaboration works.
    Some things to think about:
    a. Are the creators using the duet feature to create collaboration?
    b. Are the creators collaborating by reacting to each other or reacting to feedback from the TikTok
    community? If so, how?
    c. Is the collaboration original content or a reproduction/remix/update of already existing content
    or an already existing meme or trend?
    d. Does music play a part in the collaboration?
    e. Include links to the videos you discuss.

Leadership, Collaboration, Communication, Change Management, and Policy Considerations

In a 5-7 page written assessment, define the patient, family, or population health problem that will be the focus of your capstone project. Assess the problem from a leadership, collaboration, communication, change management, and policy perspective. Plan to spend approximately 2 direct practicum hours meeting with a patient, family, or group of your choice to explore the problem and, if desired, consulting with subject matter and industry experts.
Nurses in all professional roles work to effect positive patient outcomes and improve organizational processes. Professional nurses are leaders in problem identification, planning, and strategy implementation—skills that directly affect patient care or organizational effectiveness.
Too often, change agents jump to a conclusion that an intervention will promote the envisioned improvement. Instead, the ideal approach is to determine which interventions are appropriate, based on an assessment and review of credible evidence. Interventions could be patient-facing or involve a change in policy and process. In this assessment, you’ll identify and make the case for your practicum focus area, then explore it in depth from a leadership, collaboration, communication, change management, and policy perspective.
This assessment lays the foundation for the work that will carry you through your capstone experience and guide the practicum hours needed to complete the work in this course. In addition, it will enable you to do the following:
• Develop a problem statement for a patient, family, or population that’s relevant to your practice.
• Begin building a body of evidence that will inform your approach to your practicum.
• Focus on the influence of leadership, collaboration, communication, change management, and policy on the problem.
Demonstration of Proficiency
By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:
• Competency 1: Lead people and processes to improve patient, systems, and population outcomes.
o Define a patient, family, or population health problem that’s relevant to personal and professional practice.
• Competency 2: Make clinical and operational decisions based upon the best available evidence.
o Analyze evidence from peer-reviewed literature and professional sources that describes and guides nursing actions related to a defined patient, family, or population problem.
• Competency 5: Analyze the impact of health policy on quality and cost of care.
o Explain how state board nursing practice standards and/or organizational or governmental policies could affect a defined patient, family, or population problem.
• Competency 7: Implement patient-centered care to improve quality of care and the patient experience.
o Propose leadership strategies to improve outcomes, patient-centered care, and the patient experience related to a defined patient, family, or population problem.
• Competency 8: Integrate professional standards and values into practice.
o Organize content so ideas flow logically with smooth transitions.
o Apply APA style and formatting to scholarly writing.
Preparation
In this assessment, you’ll assess the patient, family, or population health problem that will be the focus of your capstone project. Plan to spend approximately 2 hours working with a patient, family, or group of your choice to explore the problem from a leadership, collaboration, communication, change management, and policy perspective. During this time, you may also choose to consult with subject matter and industry experts about the problem (for example, directors of quality or patient safety, nurse managers/directors, physicians, and epidemiologists).
To prepare for the assessment, complete the following:
• Identify the patient, family, or group you want to work with during your practicum The patient you select can be a friend or a family member. You’ll work with this patient, family, or group throughout your capstone project, focusing on a specific health care problem.
• Begin surveying the scholarly and professional literature to establish your evidence and research base, inform your assessment, and meet scholarly expectations for supporting evidence.
In addition, you may wish to complete the following:
• Review the assessment instructions and scoring guide to ensure that you understand the work you’ll be asked to complete and how it will be assessed.
• Review the Practicum Focus Sheet: Assessment 1 [PDF], which provides guidance for conducting this portion of your practicum.
Note: Remember that you can submit all, or a portion of, your draft assessment to Smarthinking Tutoring for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.
Instructions
Complete this assessment in two parts.
Part 1
Define the patient, family, or population health problem that will be the focus of your capstone project. Assess the problem from a leadership, collaboration, communication, change management, and policy perspective and establish your evidence and research base to plan, implement, and share findings related to your project.
Part 2
Connect with the patient, family, or group you’ll work with during your practicum. During this portion of your practicum, plan to spend at least 2 hours meeting with the patient, family, or group and, if desired, consulting with subject matter and industry experts of your choice. The hours you spend meeting with them should take place outside of regular work hours. Use the Practicum Focus Sheet [PDF] provided for this assessment to guide your work and interpersonal interactions.
CORE ELMS
Complete the NURS-FPX4900 Volunteer Experience Form in CORE ELMS. Include a description of your relationship to the patient, family, or group in the Volunteer Experience comments field.

Sample Solution

Collaboration,

As you continue to learn about collaboration, there are many challenges in learning how to effectively build collaboration with other people. In the presentation this week Cultivating Collaboration: Don’t Be So Defensive!, Jim Tamm discusses that the single greatest inhibitor of collaboration is our own defenses.

Answer the following questions in your thread: Discuss a situation that you personally faced where your own defenses impacted the outcome of a collaborative effort. Do you agree that it was personal fears that were the foundation of your defenses? From viewing this presentation and course readings, what strategies have you learned to be non-defensive and how could you behave differently for a different outcome? Feel free to include a Bible verse or link to another video to support your statement.
