TOPIC: Why not 4G to 5G technology upgrade in Developed countries Objectives The purpose of this assessment is to enable students to demonstrate a critical awareness of previous research in an IT context within a chosen topic area through a basic understanding of research theory and techniques. It requires clear communication of ideas in a professional manner so that the reader can easily understand the purpose and results of your research. Overall goals of this assignment are to help you to: â€¢ Become more knowledgeable about finding and using varied research sources in your chosen area in IT. â€¢ Further develop your critical thinking skills and back up your points with evidence. â€¢ Become more adept at synthesizing information and developing informed views. â€¢ Discipline yourself to follow a scholarly research format to document in-text sources and a references page (bibliography). â€¢ Compose a well-organized, clear, concise, research paper to expand your knowledge on a research question in your chosen area. Background The mini research report provides a detailed description of a proposed research idea. It is similar to an essay and needs to be in a formal style with introduction, body and conclusion. In addition it requires a critical analysis and a coherent presentation. Requirements Each group is required submit a mini research report (4000-4500 words excluding the title, abstract, TOC and references/bibliography). The purpose of this task is to assist students to prepare and write a scholarly paper at an appropriate standard for this level of study. You have already done quite a bit of work for this research: you should have a tentative research issue, strategies and evidence to persuade your readers about the significance of the problem youâ€™re researching, as well as the validity of your research issues. You also should consider opposing views or good counter-arguments that you can address in order to help establish your credibility and enhance the relevance of your paper. A. Report Layout The mini research report must contain the following sections, submitted in the order as listed below- â€¢ Title Page â€“ selection of an informative title â€¢ Abstract - summarization of the significant concepts in the study focusing on key aspects (major results and conclusions) â€¢ Introduction â€“ Outline of the thesis, problem, question, etc. (stating the thesis/theory in terms of relationship among variables and examining the problem or investigating the question, or the like) and preview of the structure of the paper. â€¢ Literature Review- demonstration of the ability to find significant sources, familiarity with the existing body of knowledge, analysis of existing research, and learning through a careful reading of existing scholarship. â€¢ Methods (and Methodology)- procedures and processes undertaken in your investigation/study including the research designâ€“ study type, research question, hypotheses, variables, and data collection methods (as applicable). o For research methods that may include a human ethics submission, i.e. surveys, interviews, questionnaires, tests etc. please refer to: http://federation.edu.au/research/research-support/ethics/human-ethics/human-ethics3 A review of the human ethics documents, including a check list and ethics submissions should be investigated. A description of the procedure that would need to be undertaken should be included in this section. (The human Ethics documents can be found in the above link, or in the Moodle â€œResearch Report Assessmentâ€ section within the resources folder.) â€¢ Results (and Findings) â€“ presenting your evidence and developing your argument. If appropriate, you analyze your data, outline your evidence, and apply your research design. â€¢ Discussion (Analysis & Substantiation )- match up with the aims/goals/argument of the research question/s, bring together the major outcomes of your project, interpret and review all significant findings, notes and discuss all shortcomings. â€¢ Conclusion â€“ briefly restate the research highlighting the implications of your findings â€¢ References- include relevant literature sources (in-text citation and a list of full-text references) â€¢ Appendices (if applicable) - tables, graphs, charts or any other- related to the study not included in the main paper but referred to. B. Reflective Journal You are required to produce a Reflective Journal (approximately 1000 words) that has been ongoing and progressive in terms of reporting ideas developed and other findings for the purposes of the research work. For this part of the assignment, write up a Reflective Journal of all work relating to your research topic and research idea as you have progressed through on a weekly basis, based on your weekly work/exercises in Part B of your Tutorial-Workshops from weeks 1-10. â€¢ A Reflective Journal is a tool that allows students to reflect on and write about their progress in their learning. They can identify and reflect on success and challenges. Its purpose is: o To record the development of your ideas and insights through the weekly exercises o To reflect on your own learning process o To analyze and discuss key issues covered by class work and/or readings â€¢ In other words, a Reflective Journal is a personal record of your progress and your developments in thinking about a subject or a topic. Although itâ€™s a more informal style of writing than other academic assignments, you now need to submit it as regular entries developed over a period of time- from week 1 till week 10. Your reflective journal forms the basis of your research report. â€¢ Consider the following when writing a reflective journal: o Describe events and your experience on weekly basis (weeks 1-10 based on the Tutorial-Workshops Part B) â€“ What did I do/hear/see? o Interpret and evaluate the events from your perspective â€“ What do I think about it now? How does it relate to other things that I know? o Explain your experience- reveal your new insights, connections with other learning, your hypotheses, and your conclusions. o Have I changed how I think about the situation? How have I used these to help organize my writing? â€¢ Create individual weekly headings to reflect on and add a brief conclusion on the reflections at the end, all as suggested above.

Background Being able to present your research to an audience is a key skill for researchers to develop. There are a variety of different settings where you may be asked to do this, from the school or faculty research seminar to the international conference. Presentations sometimes take the form of posters as well as talks. It is important that every presentation take account of whom the audience is. A seminar delivered to an interdisciplinary audience which may have no specialist knowledge of your field will be very different to a conference presentation in front of learned specialists â€“ even if you are presenting essentially the same research at both venues. For assistance in giving oral presentations, see: http://federation.edu.au/future-students/study-at-feduni/student-support/student-futures-program/study-skills/oral-presentations Requirements Each group is required to have all respective members present the main aspects of their research project through an oral presentation or seminar. Each studentâ€™s presentation is expected to take approximately 10 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes for questions and comments after each group has presented, i.e. after all group members have presented. The expectation is that all group members will be asked a question from either the audience or the chair (lecturer/tutor). Each group is required to use presentation software (i.e. PowerPoint, LibreOffice impress etc.) for the purpose of this presentation. This assessment gives the group an opportunity to demonstrate the key aspects of their research work to an audience and also to receive feedback on their research and the study conducted towards achieving the outcomes. The group will present a detailed overview of the study. Each member of the group should be prepared to answer questions about the aspect of the study they are presenting. â€ƒ The following is a sample structure of the overall group research presentation. Individuals in the group may choose any parts of the following. Please keep in mind that presentation continuity is important and that each student is expected to present for the same period of time, i.e. 10 minutes. [Note: This is a guide ONLY structure, you are required to make your own structure covering all the key aspects of the groupâ€™s research]- â€¢ Introduction: o Background, context, overview o Purpose of the study â€¢ Summary of Research Questions and Purpose: o Research questions, aims, hypotheses that are clear and specific o Definition of the paradigm and methodology chosen for the study, including the rationale for the choice; introduction to conceptual or theoretical framework â€¢ Summary of Relevant Literature: o Current, balanced, relevant, significant o Extensive â€¢ Summary of Methods, Methodology and Data Collection: o Variables used and relations between variables o Data collection and measurement tools â€¢ Summary of Results and Discussion (Analysis and Substantiation): o Data analysis including approaches, such as, Statistical (as applicable) etc. â€¢ Summary of any other considerations/aspects of the research, e.g., [OHS/Safety and/or Ethics]
