Assessment Workshop: Introductions

  • The first section of your proposal presentation will be the introduction
  • The introduction is a critical part of any assessment so if you find yourself rewriting it multiple times, that is not a bad thing ​
  • You will present your research topic and explain why it is important and interesting. ​
  • The introduction should also state the relevance of your research question to the larger world, and to multiple audiences in that larger world. ​

Structure of an Introduction

Statement of research question and its importance to wider scholarship /policy/world

Summary of background information

Justification - Why is your proposed research worthwhile/valuable

Question and objectives – Reader should have no doubt as to what research hopes to achieve

And now!
