Module Learning Outcomes (from module syllabus)

MODULE AIM

1. To introduce students to strategies for effective team working.

2. To develop students’ awareness of the range of communication skills integral to success within the workplace

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon the successful completion of this module, the student will be able to:

1. Apply the main theories relating to group dynamics, team working and communication to their own workplace examples.

2. Prepare and deliver a short presentation within a team working context

TASK DESCRIPTION

Group Presentation

Imagine you work for a company that offers consultation services to organisations wishing to introduce team working into their operations.

Prepare a group presentation (with PowerPoint slides) to senior managers outlining the steps and considerations that need to be made in order to introduce effective team working.

Consider:

  • Benefits of team working
  • Stages of team development
  • Team roles
  • Managing conflict
  • Successful team development

Further guidelines

The Presentation consists of 2 parts:

1) PowerPoint slides converted into a WORD document, which will be uploaded to Turnitin/Moodle before the presentation.

2) A spoken presentation in which each member of the group will present in class during your class time or on camera, using MS Teams (If you are attending online), in view of the markers for no more than 5 minutes.

Only the group leader is required to submit the group work on Turnitin/Moodle. However, it is expected that ALL group members contribute a fair share of work to the group presentation. This includes research, writing, editing, creating PowerPoint slides and preparing speaker notes. The speaker notes might be referred to while presenting but must not be read as this is a speaking and not a reading exercise.

All presentations will be held (usually in week 10) in class during your class time or, if you are attending online, online using Microsoft Teams, so the students are required to make sure that they have all the necessary equipment and technical setup to deliver their presentation on the scheduled date. The presentation slides should not exceed 5 per person and should not simply be several separate parts stuck together, but should be coherent in content, format and presentation. Your work must include a front cover listing each member of the group. It is advisable to assign student names for the specific sections of the presentation. Students are also advised to put in-text citations and references as per the Harvard referencing style. The submission will be run through Turnitin to check for any Academic Misconduct.

Students will be assessed individually on their specific contribution to the group work presented.

GENERAL SUBMISSION GUIDANCE

1. All of your submissions must include a title page that clearly states your name, your student number, the module code and title, your lecturer’s name, and your assignment title.

2. All of your submissions should be typed in Arial font, size 11.

3. All of your submissions should be typed with 1.5 line spacing.

4. All of your submissions should have an appropriate structure, include page numbers and have a reference list.

GUIDANCE FOR STUDENTS IN THE COMPLETION OF TASKS

NOTE: The guidance offered below is linked to the five generic assessment criteria overleaf.

1. Engagement with Literature Skills

Your work must be informed and supported by scholarly material that is relevant to and focused on the task(s) set. You should provide evidence that you have accessed an appropriate range of sources, which may be academic, governmental and industrial; these sources may include academic journal articles, textbooks, current news articles, organisational documents, and websites.  You should consider the credibility of your sources;  academic  journals  are  normally  highly  credible  sources  while  websites  require  careful consideration/selection and should be used sparingly.   Any sources you use should be current and up-to- date, mostly published within the last five years or so, though seminal/important works in the field may be older.  You must provide evidence of your research/own reading throughout your work, using a suitable referencing system, including in-text citations in the main body of your work and a reference list at the end of your work.

2.  Knowledge and Understanding Skills

At level 4, you should be able to demonstrate knowledge of the underlying concepts and principles associated with your area(s) of study.  Knowledge relates to the facts, information and skills you have acquired through your learning.  You demonstrate your understanding by interpreting the meaning of the facts and information (knowledge). This means that you need to select and include in your work the concepts, techniques, models, theories, etc. appropriate to the task(s) set.  You should be able to explain the theories, concepts, etc. to show your understanding.  Your mark/grade will also depend upon the extent to which you demonstrate your knowledge and understanding.

3. Cognitive and Intellectual Skills

You should be able to present, evaluate and interpret qualitative and quantitative data, in order to develop lines of argument and make sound judgements in accordance with basic theories and concepts of your subject(s) of study. You should be able to evaluate the appropriateness of different approaches to solving problems related to your area(s) of study and/or work. Your work must contain evidence of logical, analytical thinking. For example, to examine and break information down into parts, make inferences, compile, compare and contrast information.  This means not just describing what! But also justifying: Why? How When? Who? Where? At what cost? You should provide justification for your arguments and judgements using evidence that you have reflected upon the ideas of others within the subject area and that you are able to make sound judgements  and  arguments  using  data  and  concepts.    Where  relevant,  alternative  solutions  and recommendations may be proposed.

4. Practical Skills

At level 4, you should be able to apply the basic underlying concepts and principles to evaluate and interpret these within the context of your area of study. You should be able to demonstrate how the subject-related concepts and ideas relate to real world situations and/or a particular context.  How do they work in practice? You will deploy models, methods, techniques, and/or theories, in that context, to assess current situations, perhaps to formulate plans or solutions to solve problems, or to create artefacts.  This is likely to involve, for instance, the use of real world artefacts, examples and cases, the application of a model within an organisation and/or benchmarking one theory or organisation against others based on stated criteria.

5. Transferable Skills for Life and Professional Practice

Your work must provide evidence of the qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment requiring the exercise of some personal responsibility.  This includes demonstrating: that you can communicate the results of your study/work accurately and reliably, and with structured and coherent arguments; that you can initiate and complete tasks and procedures, whether individually and/or collaboratively; fluency of expression; clarity and effectiveness in presentation and organisation. Work should be coherent and well-structured in presentation and organisation.

STUDENT FEEDBACK FORM

This section details the extent to which the assessment criteria are demonstrated by you, which in turn determines your mark. The marks available for each category of skill are shown. Lecturers will use the space provided to comment on the achievement of the task(s), including those areas in which you have performed well and areas that would benefit from development/improvement.

Apply the main theories relating to group dynamics, team working and communication to their own workplace examples. They will have learned how to evaluate different approaches to solving problems, and will be able to communicate the results of their study/work accurately and reliably, and with structured and coherent arguments. They will be able to undertake further training and develop new skills within a structured and managed environment and will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment requiring the exercise of some personal responsibility.
