An essay or other contribution on consumer experience in contemporary context, which may include reflection, analysis, critical evaluation and discussion (not more than 2000 words), contributing 50% of the final mark will be submitted.
This research forms an important part of your skill portfolio, and represents an independent effort on a timely marketing or research topic. Inspiration for the piece of research might spring from everyday consumption phenomena or a concept considered in the class. You may also work on an idea or field of research surfaced during your formative assignments of group work “ including a theme such as sustainability – to ignite your research. The learning that will be assessed will be as much your ability to use a research method as to making an original contribution to knowledge in the field. Your written contribution therefore could be as much a reflection on method as a summary of findings. The word count is really tight; an d you are encouraged to go for depth of inquiry to build a rich picture rather than to try to cover a wide field.
