The Overall Objective “The critic is not the one who debunks, but the one who assembles”. […] [ It is one who constructs] a multifarious inquiry launched with the tools of anthropology, philosophy, metaphysics, history, sociology to detect how many participants are gathered in a thing to make it exist and to maintain its existence. Latour , 2002 , A prologue in form of a dialog between a student and his (somewhat) Socratic professor , Conclusion section, para . 12.

Understanding your teacher’s question An example of an Assignment Question produced by a lecturer: Students’ problem: Where to start? How to make sense out of this question? “Discuss how Indigenous groups can be involved in the Australian tourism industry.  Give examples and discuss the impacts.” Source : http://library.curtin.edu.au/

PowerPoint Presentation:

The trick is: To begin with the general task of the assignment; Gradually adding new information

PowerPoint Presentation:

I show how to turn this: “Discuss how Indigenous groups can be involved in the Australian tourism industry.  Give examples and discuss the impacts.” Source: http://library.curtin.edu.au/ Into that: In this assignment I seek to identify examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and will show how discussing their impacts can potentially assist in a better understanding of the context of possible future projects

STEP 1 (Reflection process) State your topic broadly STEP 2 (Reflection process) Formulate your initial question STEP 4 (Reflection process) Form a justification: “ I would like to explore this, because…” STEP 3 (Reflection process) Ask about the relevance of your question Involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry, examples and their impacts What are the examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and what were their impacts? I would like to ask about the examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and what were their impacts, because their discussion may assist in a better understanding of the context of possible future projects. Why ask about the examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and what were their impacts? STEP 5 (Reflection process) The question of my research What kinds of examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and their impacts would assist in a better understanding of the context of possible future projects? STEP 6 Your question In this assignment I seek to identify examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and will show how discussing their impacts can potentially assist in a better understanding of the context of possible future projects “Discuss how Indigenous groups can be involved in the Australian tourism industry .  Give examples and discuss the impacts .”

In this assignment I seek to identify examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and will show how discussing their impacts can potentially assist in a better understanding of the context of possible future projects Focus of the next step Focus of the ANALYSIS The object of INQUIRY

PowerPoint Presentation:

Steps of ANALYSIS In this assignment I seek to identify examples of involving Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry and will show how discussing their impacts can potentially assist in a better understanding of the context of possible future projects Question A better understanding of the context of possible future projects Object of INQUIRY

PowerPoint Presentation:

Object of INQUIRY A better understanding of the context of possible future projects What are the issues? Identify examples of involvement. Organise these examples in terms of the different issues that they help to raise. Which approaches solve what? Identify aspects of approaches that have managed well, or avoided, some of those issues. Relate these aspects to relevant concepts and frameworks. In your Discussion section, illustrate if successful practices followed expectations of the current business models, or not. Are there any unexpected relationships to report? What are the lessons that we have learnt? Identify qualities of project design and management that can assure best outcomes when seeking to involve Indigenous groups in the Australian tourism industry? Conclude by summarising the steps of your inquiry. Illustrating information that the data reports Interpreting data in terms of relevant frameworks. Show the contribution of your analysis to current knowledge Show the relevance that different approaches brought to the question Looking for differences in the data

PowerPoint Presentation:

Object of INQUIRY A better understanding of the context of possible future projects Financial arrangements Partnership s tructure Community involvement Project’s location Building community capacity … Perspectives explaining why things worked and implications to our models Constructing a framework for future projects What are the issues? Illustrating information that the data reports How can we talk about it? Theorising data. Identifying the significance of the collected data to current knowledge What have we addressed? Show the relevance that different approaches brought to the question of the inquiry.
