Require 10 academic source and 10 non-academic source. Each student will choose one of the ‘lines of investigation’ (questions/perspectives/issues) on the group-produced mind map and write a 1000 – 1500 word report that illuminates that line of investigation. It should give readers a clear understanding of the research topic, relevant context and drivers, and a rationale as to why it merits an in-depth investigation. A reasonable part of the report is to be a ‘what if?’ speculation. You could make suggestions about what could/should/might change in the described situation (and the possible/desirable effects of such a change). This would make a suitable and engaging conclusion to your individual reports. We encourage you to conduct some primary research (e.g. in the form of relevant interviews with experts); however, note that there is no time for methodologically sound surveys – so you will need to rely on existing data. Most if not all of this analysis should be based on secondary sources. Keep in mind that reports are always easier to read when they are formatted with images, graphs, etc. and are ‘readable’ so give some attention and effort to design. (Whilst you are not design students you are media practitioners who have developed a good eye and awareness of how to communicate with audiences in an aesthetically engaging/effective manner). All work needs to be cited correctly using the Harvard system and linked to a separate bibliography/reference section.
