This is a
group-assignment. Each group needs to
have 2 to 3 members in it. Please organise yourselves into groups.
make sure that names and ID numbers of all group members are stated on the
cover sheet of your submission.
As this is a group assignment, each member of a
group is awarded the same mark. Working
in groups has its pros and cons. I am sure that you will hold constructive and
energetic group discussions on the issues at hand. In case of any disagreements, you will be
able to resolve them in a democratic and rational way. There will be times when
you may have to agree to disagree with each other. Invariably different group members bring
different skills to a project; it is up to you to make the best of it. I
believe one can learn a lot by discussing the issues with one’s colleagues.
If you happen to find your group members are “not
pulling their weight” or there are problems with any member’s commitment, then
please try to resolve those issues amongst yourselves. Open and honest communication always
helps. If you are unable to resolve
these issues, you are most welcome to see me and we will try to sort out the
problems together. Do this as soon as possible and certainly before the due date.
Please adapt this to
suit your group, particularly the last two paragraphs.
