Assessment 2B: Analysis of collaborative work What factors do you think contributed to the level of success your group achieved? Provide specific examples from your experience to illustrate these factors The factors that contributed to the level of success of our group assessment, our presentation are having some team members who went above and beyond to find extra information to assist us as much as possible. They were able to find time to piece the presentation together using all the information the team constructed. By communicating what needed to be added and what was missing, the team members put their hands up to volunteer; By achieving this, the team benefited in a way that made the presentation work and allowed for ‘room for improvement’ through constantly asking for feedback and being open to suggestions. Through having team members who had a little more experience in University assessments gave us a bit more edge as some of us are doing this group assessment for the first time.
We made A3 Plans of mind maps and all contributed different ideas of how to make the day memorable and effective for those who participated. The team objectives/goals: * Everyone to contribute a slide for the slideshow presentation * Everyone create at least one team work activity for every group * Set an affordable budget we could all agree on * Listen to everyone * Work out solutions as a team * Stay on track and organised By creating these objectives we were able to enforce and encourage each other on doing the best we can and helping each member make a difference also feel that they are contributing a substantial amount of ideas that were being considered or used in the outcome of the event. I feel that we could have on the day been more organised and relaxed and not have panicked when we felt that something wasn’t working. For instance, we had a problem with the sound on our video when we connected it to the overhead projector, some members of the team panicked and lost all
COM10003 Learning and communication online Assessment 2B: Analysis of collaborative work The following is a review of Assessment 2A: Producing an online informational resource. I will be discussing, demonstrating and addressing the key criteria as it applies to my group’s now submitted assessment and how the factors of online collaboration affected the effective productivity of my group with reference to learning materials we have studied throughout. The shining example that comes to my mind is the strong leadership from one of our members, Will Martin.

Reflecting over the past weeks and assessing the impact of this course, I am now more aware that Counselling can help in a number of different ways. I have realised that at all time’s counsellors must show a commitment, and the client must feel reassured that their situation is probably not as despairing as they first thought. I have gained a great deal of knowledge on how to assist, understand and clarify with people on their views, also how to use the skills of counselling, for example paraphrasing, reflecting and summaries. Attending the counselling course has made a positive impact on my personal and professional life, in the way that I think, act and see situation, also the course has changed my perception of myself by making me more aware that it`s alright to say no when asked to do something I don`t what to do, I wouldn`t have classed myself as a people pleaser but working through this course I have become aware that from time to time I can be. The course has taught me to self-reflect, this has enable me to identify and develop personal awareness, Also the course has allowed me to be more aware on how to remain emotionally detached from the relationship that I will be developing with a client.

The sole purpose of utilizing sustained collaboration is to move an agenda ahead more effectively. Sustained collaboration has many positive points and the most prominent would be that it promotes a shared vision, goals and relationships.
The most critical component to the outstanding success of team one centres on the effective communication held throughout the project’s lifespan. Although from viewing our team’s wiki thread there was a visible minority of vocal contributors, active members ensured to keep communication flowing without allowing any pitfalls to occur. We achieved this by encouraging all team members to engage in conversation and decision making; frequently checking in to our teams wiki and contributing to raising issues of concern and discussing solutions; being clear about our intentions from the beginning and reiterating these throughout the project; keeping all communication simple, easy to read and navigate as well as light and friendly with humour to ensure members felt welcomed. Team one has shown that by taking decisive action in project planning decisions, team members are able to succeed on their individual contribution to team work and pull all parts together. We accomplished this by keeping the conversation moving forward and not waiting on a question to have contribution from frequently inactive members; mitigating any issues that came up, such as involvement of inactive members, quickly in order to keep to a set
I took over role as leader for the project. It had been discussed since I was the “most organized” I would be the one to look over everyone. Since we were all friends and very close I decided to take a friendly approach to looking over everything. I used the individualized consideration leadership theory while working on this project. The reason this project is my number for all leadership situations is because everything that was planned was executed correctly.
Which shows that Tuckman’s theory even in forced conversations still occur which shows that we must have learnt from the previous meeting how a conversation is to be held. Forming has already taken place previous to this conversation as all the staff and attendees know each other. Storming was involved because after reminding and discussing the rules of ‘The Warren’ people were able to build confidence and express their own ideas. Norming and performing were again present at the end of the conversation because we were all more at ease compared to the start of the meeting, were some
