·         This is a group-assignment.  Each group needs to have 2 to 3 members in it. Please organise yourselves into groups. 

·         Please 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 your group is awarded the same mark.  Working in groups has its pros and cons. I am sure that you will hold constructive and energetic 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.

Thanks –  Best wishes – Geeta

(Please modify this to suit your group).
