RESEARCH PAPER 1 Worth 25%
Listed below are points to bear in mind in regard to this Research Paper.

Topics and Presentation Schedule:
On following pages are listed a number of topics. Topics are allocated on a ‘first come – first served basis’ and can only be reserved in writing (e.g. by e-mail to your lecturer). Name: eMail: Sydney Sandhy Patrick spatrick@holmes.edu.au Melbourne Assoc Prof Peter Schmidt pschmidt@holmes.edu.au

Please nominate your preferred presentation time (see Lecture Schedule in the Subject Outline) at the time you bid for the topic. In the event of two different groups choosing the same topic, the group who nominates the earlier presentation time-slot will secure the topic. The other group will have to choose another topic. Research on the broad topic is a group activity and each student must contribute to that work. Each student in the group will then research, in depth, an individual component drawn from the broad research topic. • • Topics are to be undertaken as group work in a group of three or four persons Each topic has a general framework as well as individual components

When researching the topic:
• • The work on the general framework is the responsibility of each team member The work on the individual components is the responsibility of the individual choosing that component. However, that individual can be helped by other group members who in turn also can help other team members

The Live Presentation:
The live presentation (worth 10%) must be organised as a business presentation. Strict adherence to the fifteen minute limit is expected so the time should be carefully allocated to allow for a very short introduction on the broad topic followed by a few minutes allocated to each student to present their individual component. Following the delivery of the presentation, the topic will be written up as a seminar report (worth 15%) and submitted to your lecturer within a week of the live presentation. You may incorporate ideas generated in the live presentation. If a live presentation is below standard a time extension may be granted to allow for improving the quality of the written report.

The Written Report:
The written report should begin with the broad research topic which is followed by each individual component identified by the individual student who prepared it. Organisation of the research report A key ingredient to writing a successful report involves the planning or organising stage. Organising can help you to sort out your ideas and to present your report in the order that communicates best to
