SUGGESTED BREAKDOWN

Introduction

 (approx. word  count 100)

•             Outline what is to follow in your essay

•             Be as brief as possible

•             Try not to repeat words

•             Demonstrate a breadth of vocabulary

•             Try and ‘whet the appetite’ of the reader

Part One: A review of the perceived value of the applied research method; according to literature

(approx word count 400)

You should cover:

•             At least one definition of the research method

•             Identified strengths and opportunities - including how and why this particular tool is often viewed positively and the circumstances where it is believed to work well

•             Recognised weaknesses and threats – including the perceived drawbacks and pitfalls.

 

You should avoid use of the first person in this section and make numerous references to literature

 

Part Two:  A review of the skills, attributes and resources required and developed

 

(approx word count 600)

 

You should cover:

•             What are some of the recognised competences, personality traits and resources that help facilitate the application of the research method?

•             What you learnt from your participation and how you felt?

•             To what extent you feel you have developed the skills and confidence to utilise this research tool in the future?

•             What you (now) consider to be vital ingredients to ensure similar research is conducted professionally?

•             What resources are likely to be needed for you to do so, and how might you prepare or access them?

•             How the skills acquired and developed, in relation to self-management, teamwork and professionalism, might prove beneficial in any future roles and responsibilities in the field of education and beyond?

•             What skills require further development and how might you go about this?

 

       TIP: Most reflective essays benefit from an honest appraisal and awareness of   areas for development. Exaggerated claims of strengths or an impression given of being beyond improvement are often seen as disingenuous or naïve.

 

Part Three:   A reflection on the suitability of applying a similar process for collecting data from children and young people and how credible any resulting findings might be?

(approx word count 700)

You should cover:

•             Examples of how a similar process has been, or could be, applied to collect data from children and young people on other educational topics?

•             How credible are any findings likely to be and why?

•             How are findings typically processed?

•             An appreciation of issues (and definitions) of reliability, validity and bias

•             To what extent are the views expressed likely to be representative of the wider population and to what degree this might matter?

•             Different perspectives on the value of  ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ data

•             How the method may or may not be particularly suitable for gathering information from children and young people?

•             What you could do to make the process more accessible to children and or young people?

•             An awareness of some of the risks involved

•             In particular possible behavioural and child protection issues, including the importance of obtaining informed consent and maintaining confidentiality, agreeing ground rules and the right to withdraw, and being aware of children and young people’s vulnerabilities and adults’ safeguarding responsibilities.

You should avoid use of the first person in this section and continue to make numerous references to literature

Conclusion

 (approx word count 200):

 

•             Provide a clear summary of themes addressed in all three parts

•             Indications of when, whether and why you might apply the method in the future

•             Do not include any surprises or references within the conclusion

CIPD assignment is not my cup of tea. That’s the reason I sought out this place suggested by my friend. I would say that the writers of this site are really admiring. I was assigned the best CIPD writer that solved all my issues. He explained to me the difficult topics so well that now I am able to talk on those topics eloquently. I owe my writer a huge thanks and praise! And yes, I would recommend other students as well to come to instaresearch.co.uk for the top CIPD assignment help.
