The essay will use the same topic that was chosen for Assessment 1, the annotated bibliography. The topic for your annotated bibliography was phrased as a question. It is this same question that now forms the title of your essay and which the essay must address. NOTE: If you wish to change topics for the essay then please consult with your lecturer as soon as possible. This is important because if you change topics, then you will need to begin an essay literature search from the beginning again. The essay requires: • Research and review of the contemporary literature in the topic area. • A range of citations and references that should demonstrate breadth and depth of research. • Industry and/or organisational examples to be incorporated into the essay as illustrative evidence. • A original argument to be built through the use of critical thinking. • Critical evaluation in the essay's conclusions. • Appropriate and accurate use of the Harvard referencing system You must use a minimum of 10 references. These must comprise: • At least 6 academic articles (up to five of which may be the same ones as in your annotated bibliography). • Up to 2 text books (including the prescribed text) • Up to 2 other authoritative sources of your choice. E.g. quality newspaper or professional journal, government or NGO website. Please avoid the use of corporate websites as these tend to be promotional and not authoritative. • Wikipedia and other ‘popular’ or non-academic sources are not to be used.
