Learning Goal: I’m working on a research & summaries report and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Research in the workplace solves a problem. Tasked with a problem in the workplace, you may be asked to gather the information necessary to fully understand the issue at hand. You also may need information in addition to or instead of scholarly resources. Local journalism may add context and perspective. Professional experts, government agencies, state and local authorities all may be relevant sources, as are individuals in target populations.It’s also important when thinking about a problem you are researching to keep in mind that you probably aren’t the first person or organization to deal with an issue of this nature. Look at other organizations, groups, or communities negotiating the same or similar issues. Research how those groups describe and deal with the problem. The perspective of experience is invaluable to your work.AssignmentThis project asks you to do workplace research into a local problem impacting USF or the surrounding community. Your goal for this project is to describe the problem in detail using as much information as you can gather from as many different sources as are useful. That means you are looking at research gathered by others (e.g., government agencies, non-profit organizations, professional and academic experts), but also you will create a plan to gather your own data by contacting experts and asking the impacted population for their perspective (you will not execute this until you are in a group for Project 4). You will produce a memo that reports your findings, giving readers a robust understanding of the problem you have researched and creating a solid foundation for Project 4.OutcomesUpon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:Engage with a problem-based scenario similar to those found in the workplace
Develop research skills appropriate for addressing a specific problem
Integrate research into a project deliverable
Develop professional and technical writing and editing skills
Practice writing for a specific purpose and audience
Produce a specific genre of professional discourse (informational report)
To complete this project, you will choose a local problem occurring at USF or in the community. You can select a problem from the list or come up with your own idea: Assessment and use of USF student fees
Availability of employment and/or financial services (e.g., job application, college application, financial aid, home budget programs) at local libraries
Sustainable plastic waste management (e.g., water bottles)
Electric car charging stations at USF campuses
Mental health messaging and management at USF
Once you have selected a problem, you will research the problem, to include the following topics:Background information: Put the problem in context. What does the audience need to know to understand why the problem is a problem?
Explanation of the problem: Describe the problem in detail. What is happening?
Causes of the problem: Describe the factors contributing to the problem’s occurrence. Why is the problem happening?
Impacted Population: Describe the people most directly impacted by the problem. Who is the problem happening to?
Research Plan: How will you collect data in order to understand the problem?
DeliverableA report in memo format that describes your problem in detail using all the research you have conducted. The memo should have the following section headings:
Explanation of the Problem
Causes of the Problem
Works Cited or References
Requirements: as long as it include everything
