The Stage Gate process begins with the "Discovery" stage which you document in this report. [login to view URL] uses this discovery phase to help ensure that all team members understand the context and that teams are able to identify real problems to be solved. [login to view URL] has identified some areas of opportunity (described in "The Project" module) that can be used as a start for the report.
You are to write a brief report for your team members at [login to view URL] which:
Introduces the unique position of students in society. This should focus on how students as a whole represent a distinct group who have unique concerns due to their current role as students. (1-2 paragraphs)
Discusses current students at Australian Universities in particular. You can discuss (for example) demographics, dispersion, financial position etc. (2-3 paragraphs)
Identifies at least four different problems face by students at Australian universities. For each, give a brief description of the problem and of how students are uniquely impacted by the problem. Include who is affected by the problem (the stakeholders), when and where they face it, and the impact of the problem on their lives. (This does not need to be a significant impact, it can be a small problem you have found. Also it may be something that has a solution for "other people" which is not suited to students.) For this section you should research the problem which may involve reading sources, speaking to stakeholders and reflecting on your personal experience.
Your report shall be written for engineering colleagues. The tone, language and content should be suitable for this audience.
Your report should demonstrate to your [login to view URL] colleagues that you have an understanding of the particular unique problems students face. This is easiest if you identify problems that you or people you know have faced.
You may use dot points or paragraphs in your report long as the information is clear and easily read. Give consideration to the presentation and structure of the report. It is always advisable to include an introduction paragraph and a conclusion summarising the report.
As a guide the report should be 1500 words long (about 3 pages): one to two pages summarising the student population and focusing on Australia, one to two pages identifying problems faced by students.
You may include additional information in appendices.
Your report must include:
your name and student number
tutorial number and tutor's name
You are required to use your judgement in finding information (and use sources in addition to the ones supplied to you). Sources should be Current, Reliable and Relevant, Authoritative and suitable for the Audience, as well as suitable for your Purpose (an acronym you encountered in Engineering Communication).
