II. The process of working in a team (250 words for each student in the group).
This will be assessed via a written journal (250 words) produced independently by each team member. Since group work is a component of this unit, it is important to focus on the processes and best practices of teamwork. The point of this assessment task is to ask you to consider the dynamics of the group, its effectiveness, and the extent of each students’ contribution.
Your journal should
• demonstrate your ability to reflect thoughtfully on your experience working in a team
• demonstrate an understanding of the value of group work
• explain your contribution to the group.
