Part 1: From your perspective what are the ethical, cybersecurity, and other risks to the collection, management, and use of information and technologies overall and in the public arena specifically?

Research Paper Instructions

You will discuss assigned questions for the Module/Week.

  • Answers to questions must be supported with research and citations. It is not unusual, for instance, to have 3–4 citations per paragraph in doctoral-level research.
  • Remember also that writing a research paper, especially at the doctoral-level, requires you to weave in ideas from numerous sources and then in turn synthesizing those ideas to create fresh insights and knowledge.

Specifics:

  • 8–10 pages of content, double-spaced
  • Must include citations from all readings and presentations for the assigned module and at least 15 scholarly sources in total
  • Each paper consists of 3 parts (below) plus an introduction and reference section. To make it easier for readers to follow your thinking, please discuss the topics in the order presented above and with appropriate heading.
  • Current APA format

Module/Week 2: Ethical, Security, and Legal Issues—and Biblical Principles—in the Collection and Management of Information

Answer and discuss the following:

  • Part 1: From your perspective what are the ethical, cybersecurity, and other risks to the collection, management, and use of information and technologies overall and in the public arena specifically?
  • Part 2: What are some Biblical principles that can help inform and shape your use of information?
  • Part 3: How will you help those around you:

1) Prevent the misuse or abuse of information; and

2) Wisely use information and technology for the benefits of all?  

  • Synthesize the above with a Biblical model of government and statesmanship.

Submit Research Papers by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of the assigned modules/weeks.

Module/Week 3: Understanding the Context of Information Management

Answer and discuss the following:

  • Part 1: Who are the major stakeholders in public sector IM and IT in general and specifically where you work now (or will work in the future)?
  • Part 2: Why are those stakeholders critical to your ‘success’ or effectiveness in your public service (current or future)?
  • Part 3: How will you engage those stakeholders, earn their trust and build your credibility, and collaborate with them to enhance public sector services where you work now (or may work in the future)?
  • Synthesize the above with a Biblical model of government and statesmanship.

Module/Week 5: How Can Data Analytics and Other IT/IM Tools Help You and Your Organization Enhance Management and Delivery of Public Services?

Discuss the following:

  • Part 1: Information Overload. Please summarize current research data how we are bombarded with information as individuals (family and home lives, shopping, social media, news, gaming, etc.) as well as in our work in government organizations every day. What some of the consequences of information and sensory overload?
  • Part 2: What are some of the technologies (data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc.) we can use to distill down the information to what we need and has value for our work in the public sector?
  • Part 3: So, how do we make sense of all this information, in addition to technologies helping us as you discussed in Part 2? How can critical thinking, identifying and taking into account the vested interests and agendas of the data sources, etc. help us make and communicate wise decisions, and then take action?
  • Synthesize the above with a Biblical model of government and statesmanship.
