Research in Information Technology
Part 1: Group project (40 Marks)
Aims of the group project:
1 As a team, to demonstrate an ability to critically evaluate the application of information technology in organisations within a socio-technical context.
2 As a team, to demonstrate an ability to successfully apply the study skills and research techniques discussed in the Research in Information Technology unit.
3 As a team, to prepare and deliver an effective oral presentation appropriately supported by visual aids.
4 As an individual, to demonstrate an ability to work as part of a team and contribute positively to the overall team aims.
Task 1 – 25
Marks Joint Research Paper (JRP) Jointly with your team you are to produce an academic paper which presents your research into the socio-technical impact of the Internet on organisations. You may choose either a commercial, industrial or public/not-for-profit organisation as the basis of your study. You must construct a plan of how you intend to tackle the work and construct the deliverables. In the body of the work you must develop academic debate concerning the given topic and write an academic paper giving a balanced view of the arguments and counter-arguments found in relevant literature. The conclusions should be relevant and describe what has been achieved, what has been discovered, its contribution to knowledge and recommendations for further study. The final paper should have a word count of 3000 words, contain citations (using the Harvard style) to at least 15 referenced sources of relevant literature and conclude with a reference section (also using the Harvard style).
Task 2 – 15 Marks Group presentation Prepare and effectively deliver a well-structured and informative presentation which shares with your audience an overview of your team project. The presentation should make use of all team members and relevant support material, including relevant theories and, if appropriate, empirical data, together with realistic conclusions and recommendations for further study. The whole presentation should be carefully linked together to provide a coherent account of the subject under consideration.
Part 2: Individual report (60 Marks) Aims of the individual report:
1 To keep a record (Learning Logbook) of your learning progress throughout the Research in Information Technology unit in order for you to manage your learning; 2 To produce a report comprising a critical reflection of that learning progress. You must demonstrate your ability to think, problem-solve and learn. You must also demonstrate the amount and depth of your learning during this unit.
Task 3 – 10 Marks Learning Logbook You are to keep a Learning Logbook in which you make notes about the issues raised whilst carrying out the group research project. It is important to document ‘real’ activities such as company visits, group meetings, desk research, primary research, etc. You should also include notes that you make on articles from academic journal papers and books (and their references), draw sketches of ideas, diagrams of processes, record and discuss any other factors that contribute to your thinking and learning processes.
Task 4 – 50 Marks Critically Reflective Report (CRR) You are to develop and write a critically reflective report (CRR) with a word count of 2000 words describing, explaining and analysing how and where your learning has taken place. Indicate any events of significance that influenced your learning in general and in research methods and information technology in particular. You should also reflect upon the activities which you engaged in as part of the group research project, as recorded in your logbook.
