Read all instructions and follow everything in the document. You should satisfy every instruction and requirement. The concept map should not be broad. You need to contextualize the concept map to a specific higher education context/institution and give a good visual representation of concept map. Remember the annotated bibliography must be build on the concept map and paper.
Write an annotated bibliography
To learn about your topic: Writing an annotated bibliography is excellent preparation for a research project. Just collecting sources for a bibliography is useful, but when you have to write annotations for each source, you're forced to read each source more carefully. You begin to read more critically instead of just collecting information. At the professional level, annotated bibliographies allow you to see what has been done in the literature and where your own research or scholarship can fit. To help you formulate a thesis: Every good research paper is an argument. The purpose of research is to state and support a thesis. So a very important part of research is developing a thesis that is debatable, interesting, and current. Writing an annotated bibliography can help you gain a good perspective on what is being said about your topic. By reading and responding to a variety of sources on a topic, you'll start to see what the issues are, what people are arguing about, and you'll then be able to develop your own point of view.
To help other researchers: Extensive and scholarly annotated bibliographies are sometimes published. They provide a comprehensive overview of everything important that has been and is being said about that topic. You may not ever get your annotated bibliography published, but as a researcher, you might want to look for one that has been published about your topic.
An annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. In this assignment, your annotations should do of the following:
• Summarize: Some annotations merely summarize the source. What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? The length of your annotations will determine how detailed your summary is.
• Assess: After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it. Is it a useful source? How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? Is the information reliable? Is this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this source? How is this source useful to the paper that I am creating?
• Reflect: Once you've summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your research. Was this source helpful to you? How does it help you shape your argument? How can you use this source in your research project? Has it changed how you think about your topic?
• Relevance: For the annotated Bibliography, you are not being asked to include ALL the articles you will use in your final paper. Rather, you asked to select KEY literature that is central and essential to your position, literature review or theoretical paper.
1. Concept Map and Paper
Understand how concept mapping can be used to help refine your thinking and writing of your paper.
Concept mapping can be a useful tool for helping you conceptualize your paper. This method is often used in research to help scholars conceptualize research studies. Creating a concept map is useful in helping you think through the major ideas, concept and bodies of literature that are guiding your work and help you organize these in a way that is cohesive, clear and compelling.
1- You specifically need to focus on implementing Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) in higher education, manufacturing, and make sure that all your resources relate to your theme.
2- Each of you will identify the main ideas and concepts that are embedded in his/her paper.
3- Once you have generated some concepts to work with, ask yourself how these concepts are related.
4- Create a concept map of the important concepts that underpin your paper and their connection to each other.
* Be creative don't think about getting the right concept map. Think about the paper you are writing, the underlying thesis statement, the argument that you are making and how the concept embedded in your argument is related.
Once you have created a visual representation of the concepts in your paper, you will use it to answer the following questions, those questions should help you to write the concept paper):
- What are the central concepts at the heart of your paper?
- How do you think these concepts related to each other and what is your basis for these?
- What is the relationship between the concepts and ideas that you will discuss in your paper?
- What literature informs your paper and how does this literature connect / relate?
You need to construct one-page concept paper based on the concept map. This paper will illustrate your concept map.
2. Annotated Bibliography
Your paper will be an annotated bibliography, specifically focusing on implementing Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) in higher education, and make sure that all your resources relate to your theme. (Remember this annotated bibliography must be build on your concept map and paper).
You paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at least seven (7) resources, ALL of which must:
1) Be current. Published within the last few years.
2) Be peer-reviewed. That means the paper must have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web site.
