Bloody Start for the 2nd Semester


It was just the second meeting of our classes for the second semester of the Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning and it was already seem to feel very bloody. That is because of a number of assignments that needs to be accomplished within the next two weeks for our subject P299.

For this weekend, each of us is required to come up with a three-page concept paper discussing our planned research topic. The issue that Gaia and I propose to tackle on is water scarcity in the barangays in Iloilo city. I have yet to look for reference documents and previous data for basis as well as journal articles published on education websites online.

We should also come up with a specific Research title for the concept paper, maybe mentioning a district or a particular number of barangays in the city such as in the coastal areas. As mentioned in the guide, the title of the Concept Paper should be a stand-alone statement that can fully describe the project by summarizing the main idea of the manuscript.

For a quick recap, the rest of the elements of a concept paper should be as follows: Statement of the Problem, Preliminary Literature Review, Goal Statement, Research Questions, An Abridged Methodology, Timeline and References. We shall see how it goes for the rest of the day once we can finish step 1.
