BBA102 Assessment Guide – Session 1 – 2019
10
Students must attend a minimum of 3 (three) out of 5 (five) tutorials in weeks 3, 4 ,5, 7 and 9 (as indicated in the Course Teaching Schedule), to meet Proof of Engagement as a condition to pass the Reflection on Teamwork (see the Reflection Criterion in the Essay Marking Rubric).
For your essay, research the event online. You should access media and Internet coverage as well as dedicated TV programs such as ABC’s Four Corners episode (Four Corners 16 July 2018). Using teamwork theories* (see explanation below) address the following three points:
a) justify the importance of teamwork in this type of a scenario; b) explain what made international teamwork effective; and c) discuss what role team learning played in the success of the rescue mission.
* Teamwork theories In this unit, learning about management is based on studying, understanding and using theories of management to interpret various events, situations, trends, and experiences. Students must explicitly refer to the variety of theoretical material regarding teamwork used to explain the different components of the rescue operation. Theoretical material (or, theory, in short, as used in the marking rubric) includes any theories, models, concepts, or research findings that are discussed in lectures, course readings and in other academic literature required and recommended for the use in this Essay (see pages 13-14), and sourced by students independently via research databases.
Reflection on Teamwork (Part II) Task Description
In Part II (Reflection on Teamwork) students must write a 500-word reflection on their experience of working in teams during the BBA102 tutorials and answer the following two questions:
1. What did you learn from your teamwork experience in this course? 2. How would these lessons assist you in your current or future career?
Inherent Task Requirements – Proof of Engagement for the Successful Completion of the Reflection on Teamwork
Attending and participating in tutorials in which teamwork and reflection activities are scheduled (see the Course Teaching Schedule document on iLearn) will provide the basis for the 500-word Reflection on Teamwork. This means that the content of students’ Reflections on Teamwork is contingent on their attendance at and engagement in tutorials, in which teamwork and reflections are conducted.
