Select any topic (Process, Knowledge Area, Inputs, Tools/Techniques, Outputs, etc.) from the chapters that have been covered this term in Kloppenborg or Pinto. The student is required to choose a journal article regarding the topic selected. The Kloppenborg text has additional readings available at the end of each chapter to aid in article search.
Any of these journal articles, relating to our weekly subjects, can be used for this assignment. The critique will discuss a summary of the article along with relevant points made by the author. In addition, the student should offer a critique of the article and should give an application of the concept being discussed.
This assignment should be approximately 3-4 pages in length. Research Tips for locating articles: This course requires that the student is able to conduct weekly online library research by utilising UC’s Library (online) in order to locate scholarly journals such that the student can successfully complete weekly papers regarding cases and/or articles in project management, and such that the student can engage in the weekly assignments.
The following is one example of how to navigate i Learn and the online Library in order to conduct research: Log onto your course on I Learn Go to the home page for this course Click on the “Library Resources” icon in the left-hand column of this web page, this will open the library web page.
Under the search boxes for the UC Mega Search click the box to the left of the phrase Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Articles. Then click the Search box. This will give you a Basic Search page. Under the Search boxes click Advanced Search. The Advanced Search will appear with three (3) search boxes.
In the first box type “project management” Change the “Select a Field (optional)” selection to “SO Journal Source/Title”. In the second box type any of your search terms (“scope”, monitoring”, etc.) Change the “Select a Field (optional)” to “TX All Text”. You can either add an additional search term in the third box or hit the blue Search button.
This will bring up a large selection of potential articles based upon your search parameters. You can narrow down your search by using additional search terms.
Every paper typed in this course should be in APA formatting (title page, reference page, NO abstract page, in-text citations, running head, page numbers, Times New Roman 12 font, 1-inch margins, double-spacing, etc.…). Points will be deducted for papers that are not typed in APA formatting. Also, every paper in this course needs to be based on research from a scholarly source that is retrieved from UC’s Library.
