Week 4: Practical Application of Research Skills

Hide Description

Read the article “Adult
Education and the Social Media Revolution,” available in the eReserves
section of the classroom. Pay particular attention to the references
these authors make to the works of others. Every citation within this
article is essentially a head nod to other authors who have written
about the same or similar topics. Were they all in the same room, you
could imagine the authors of this article pointing to or calling out
those other authors while speaking. This is what we mean when we refer
to research and writing as one big conversation, with all of the
participants listening and responding to one another.

In a discussion post, point to an example from this article and explain how the authors do one of the following:

  • refer to another work in order to give legitimacy to their own point;
  • refer to another work in order to build upon the ideas of others; or
  • refer to another work in order to challenge that work.

If you select “refer to another work in order to give
legitimacy to their own point,” first describe what the authors’ point
is, then describe how the cited article supports that point.

If you select “refer to another work in order to build upon the
ideas of others,” first describe what the ideas are, then describe how
the authors build upon those ideas.

If you select “refer to another work in order to challenge that
work”, first describe what is being challenged, then describe how the
authors are challenging the cited work.

Then, give an example from your own life in which you rely upon the
work of others to complete a task or accomplish a goal. (This example
might be from your workplace, community, or academic life.)

Scoring:

0-2 points: Post does not identify an example from the text or an example from the student’s life.

3-4 points: Post identifies examples, but fails to adequately describe/discuss those examples within the stated context.

5 points: Post identifies examples from both the
text and the student’s life and fully explains the significance of these
examples within the stated context.
