In academic writing technical terms are often used with the assumption that the reader understands the language. As a result the concepts are not defined even though given the complexity of most academic writing definitions should actually be provided. As students you can look terms up, make educated guesses about what the term means based on how it is used in the text, or you can synthesise information from a number of sources in order to create your own accurate definition.
The purpose of this assignment is to practice doing the latter, which is to synthesise information from a number of sources in order to create your own accurate definition. The expectation of this assignment is for you to create an academically sound and contemporary definition of skill formation in relation to a country of your choice.
By the end of this assignment you will be able to:
1. synthesise evidence from a range of sources in order to compose an evidence based definition of a core concept for the paper
2. using your definition, identify and describe the key institutions, structures, and organisation of a skill formation system in a country of your choice
3. identify and explain the type of labour market that exists in a country of your choice, and
4. follow assignment requirements in relation to the structure and expression of your ideas as well as using APA referencing accurately
The task of synthesising material is a challenging one and as such I encourage you to work in teams in order to create your definition. However, I would request that you, as far as possible, find ways to express yourself in your own words. One of the ways in which you can do this is to create a shared definition of skill formation but within your groups select different countries to apply it to. I would recommend that you select a country that you are interested in because the country you select will also feature in your next assignment or Part II. You do not need to work in a team if that is not your preference but if I was given this task I would certainly want some help with it. Please let me know in good time if you would like to work with other people but don?t know who you would like to work with. There are no restrictions on group size this is an exercise on your abilities as students to organise yourselves and your work.
And of course if someone in the class does manage to find a comprehensive definition of skill formation I would like to think that they would share the location of this source with others in the class via moodle. I also encourage you to use moodle to facilitate class discussion on the assignment and associated concepts during the break.
Sources to synthesise
Given the short amount of time for this task four books have been placed on course reserve to assist you. You may seek other sources to supplement your research but you do not have to as it is my expectation that the four sources will provide sufficient information that will allow you to not only select a country to focus on but also create your definition of skill formation.
