Welcome to week one! In this first weekly module we are going over in detail the culminating masters degree requirement for the M.S. in Global Technology & Development (and other degrees!). Since a main objective of this course is to prepare you to successfully complete a high quality Applied Project to culminate your graduate degree, we will spend time looking at completed projects, the requirements and process leading to successful completion, and exploring with each of you a potential focus for your own Applied Project.
- Introduce course and course participants.
- Identify requirements and expected outcomes of the GTD Applied Project.
- Explore the purpose of problem statements and literature reviews.
- Identify an area of interest to begin a problem statement.
Module 1: Learning Materials
Familiarize yourself with the GTD Resource Page, which you find in the box below ( click a few times to open in a new tab) attached
Read the ‘Guidelines for the Applied Project’.
Select and read one GTD Applied Project from the GTD Internal Resource page (they are at the bottom of the Applied Project page, and there are a few to choose from.
Discussion 1: What might you do (potentially!) for your Applied Project? (Original Post: March 12; Comments for Peers- at least two: March 14)
After you read through the material on the Applied Project on our GTD Resource Page, including one selected exemplary Applied Project, post a short response to the Applied Project that you read – what did you like about it? what possible gaps or issues did you notice (since none are perfect!)? What questions might you have about it? 250-300 words
Then, tell us an area or issue within global development that you are interested in, that you could potentially focus an applied project on. This can change, so don’t worry about not being sure at this point. This will form the basis of your problem statement, do if you can be as focused as possible, and try using research questions – why, what, how??
Write a two page prospectus outlining the proposed applied project. In general, it should contain:
- A problem
- Problem background
- Significance of the problem
- A purpose statement (The purpose of this research or research proposal is to…..)
- Literature review (preliminary, can be annotated bibliography) not required to have fully at the moment
- Methods (How will you collect your data? What is the overall design?) (Applied Project: what will you create?
How will you create it? What problem does it solve?
