hello, I need a seminar paper about coaching in HRD.

Here are the details;


Thesis/Seminar Paper Requirements for HURD 806(Chapters 1 – 2):

Chapter 1: Introduction that includes an overview of the paper and the following: • Background and what has been reviewed – Try to capture the reader’s attention so they will want to read the Thesis/Seminar paper. • Purpose of the review. • Issue or problem/need for the study. • Theoretical/conceptual framework (if appropriate). • Research questions or hypothesis – what you believe to be true or what will be examined – although you are not doing research, completing this will help to guide your review – what do you want to know at the end? • Limitations of the review/focus? • Key terms and definitions. • Summary – briefly set up the remaining chapters. • References.

Chapter 2: Literature review that includes a survey of the supporting and current literature and research that addresses the phenomena under review. • Briefly restate the focus of the review – from Chapter 1. • Identify the major subheadings? • What does the literature say about your topic (in general)? • Note specific research articles, what they sought to explore and what was found? • Provide details on the population examined, type of study, etc., as appropriate. • Major research findings? This section should be structured around the key segments of your outline as described in Chapter 1; if you discover a new area of focus, include that information. • Summarize this chapter, comparing and contrasting the literature, approaches, and general findings.

The literature review should be from the textbook below chapter 2.

Structuring Your Paper:

Each type of scholarly paper has basic structure requirements. However, there is wiggle room to adjust your paper to meet the standards of your topic and audience. Below are general sections that will need to be included in your paper depending on the type of paper you are writing. Don’t forget to reference the APA Manual (current edition).

Structure of a Seminar Paper

Title And Cover Page:

The title of your research paper should state your topic exactly in the smallest possible number of words. Put your name, the name of your department, and the name of your university under the title. The cover page restates the above and includes Department Coordinator and Instructor names and signatures.


The acknowledgement is the writer’s opportunity to honor those who have contributed to his or her completion and or success of writing the research paper. Those who offered assistance and support in any shape or form.

Table of Contents:

The Table of Contents begins with page iii or iv, depending on the length of the abstract. The TOC must have entries for the abstract, list of tables, list of figures, chapters with their numbers and titles, main headings and subheadings, appendices, and reference list. The TOC should match the headings and subheadings of the seminar/thesis/dissertation chapters exactly. The page number should be printed at the bottom center of the TOC pages.

List of Tables/List of Figures :

These are included when necessary and the formatting should be similar to that of the Table of Contents.

Chapter I:


The first section should be an introduction to your topic. This section you should demonstrate your ability to write a scholarly paper. You should review the background of your topic and give an outline of the contents of your paper. In this section you are expected to present a broad review of the literature of the topic of study synthesizing the major theories in the respective knowledge domains. While seminal data may be important, the vast majority of the literature cited should be current (within four years of the date of the paper).

Statement of the Problem:

The problem statement is the very core of the document. It must be clearly written to show the reader the direction of the research. The statement of the problem is usually seen written in one of two ways. One way that is often seen is in the form of a question. This method is very effective for a few reasons: 1. The reader can clearly understand that the purpose of this work is to answer this particular question clearly and entirely. 2. The researcher has really narrowed down the topic to show where the focus of the document is going to be for his/her own clarity. If the reader is not clear on the expectations of the document, then it will be much more challenging for the reader to achieve follow and/or understand the document.

Purpose of the Study :

The purpose of the study must be made clear to the reader. The researcher has a large task to help all readers understand why this particular research is important and worth their time to read. The researcher is urged to look at this section as a mock debate. The researcher must debate the issue that this topic is important, while the readers do not feel that it is. This will produce a very persuasive argument thus making this section a successful part of the document.

Research Questions:

If you use research questions they would be placed here in the document. Such questions help point out to the reader, some of the key issues that will be covered. Research questions must be answered in the document in the same order that they appear in the document.

Need for the Study:

This section should point out clearly why and how the study will add valuable information to the topic or add to the society’s general knowledge on the subject. It is important to understand the difference between the Purpose of the Study and the Need for the Study. There are two different sections of the document and should be presented as such. Both of these sections should flow together with the purpose of the study setting the foundation for the need for the study.

Theoretical Framework:

A theoretical framework consists of concepts, together with their definitions, and existing theory/theories that are used for your particular study. The theoretical framework must demonstrate an understanding of theories and concepts that are relevant to the topic of your research paper and that will relate it to the broader fields of knowledge in this class. This section should address 2-3 HRD related theories.


“Limitations” are influences the researcher cannot control – instruments utilized, sample, time constraints. For instance: This seminar paper is a literature review of peer reviewed articles and journals spanning the last 15 years of publication. As a researcher, I was given 8 weeks to successfully complete this assignment.


“Delimitations,” are choices made by the researcher and include boundaries purposely set – will frequently deal with such items as population/sample, treatment(s), setting, and instrumentation. For instance: Data analyzed includes test-score data of Arizona public school 4th graders between the years of 1990-1994.

Definition of Terms :

In this section the researcher will help the reader understand any terms that may be unclear or have multiple definitions. Definitions are not to come from a dictionary but from appropriate professional journals and publications. Target audience should be considered and the researcher should be careful not to belittle the intelligence of reading audience.

Chapter II:

Literature Review:

Every chapter should start with an introduction section. Literature can be broken down into two types: General and Specific. The general section is where the researcher has the opportunity to lay out the foundation for all of the following subject matter. A good review is thorough and comprehensive. It should show pro and opposing views noting disagreements/contradictions etc. It is not uncommon for a researcher to use subheadings to break up topics to make the document more reader friendly. The specific literature review is much more detailed and focused than the general review. This section deals explicitly with the literature that addresses the problem statements listed in the statement of the problem section of the document. The focus should be very detailed and comprehensive, yet the delivery of the information should be as concise as possible. This section should address the research questions in the order in which they are listed. The section should also end with a summary. This section should:  Briefly restate your focus – from Chapter 1  What are the major subheadings? What does the literature say about your topic in general?  Note specific research articles, what they sought to explore and what was found  Include details on the population examined, type of study, etc, as appropriate.  What are the major research findings? This section should be structured around the key segments of your outline as described or established in Chapter 1; if you discover a new area of focus, include that.  Summarize this chapter, comparing and contrasting the literature, the approaches and general findings
