Question 1
I think overall our group deserves an 8/10. In my opinion our group started rather slowly and grew one by one. After receiving an initial email from Alyssa introducing herself we exchanged a few emails getting to know each other and opening the lines of communication. During the exchange Alyssa and I discussed which topics we were interested in and we were both interested in the topic of Learning Styles and Learning Theories, together we decided on researching Learning Styles. (Wiki group 7, 2016) After this Samantha joined our group, offering opinions when needed, and finally James joined thus completing our group. James offered very little assistance and communication within this assessment, and I feel this is where we would lose

To research Kinaesthetic learning, I utilised the internet, along with textbooks I have at home and informational resources I have access to at work. I felt I took on a partial leader role as I kept trying to initiate communication between all members of the team via wiki page as well as email. I was also the one to email our ELA to query any questions and concerns we had about the assessment. When we experienced problems with our wiki page I rang the Swinburne support staff to get the problem resolved. Alyssa and I discussed the allocation and topics each person would complete, and discussed when we ran into the problem of doubling up information. As James came in towards the end of the assessment, after we had already divided the assessment, we attempted to discuss with him that he would do one learning style as all other tasks were assigned.

Question 4
I believe I participated in this assessment to the best of my abilities. In the future, for team assessments I will join a group as soon as possible to ensure that I can get the most out of my assessment time. I would also ensure to collaborate and communicate with team members on a personal and professional level to ensure we have a good rapport as a team and understand each other. I would also ensure that I have a good understanding of the assessment before commencing work on it and discuss with my fellow team members or ELA any parts I am unsure about. I feel that having an open line of communication is vital to any team assessment, as it makes it working with other people more comfortable and stress-free. Ensuring that I research my parts of assessment and having drafts completed on time is also incredibly important to be so that it give the team the time and opportunity to contribute and ensure the entire team is on the same page. I would also try to take the time to help other team members if they required it. Overall, I would have to say that I will continue to participate in the same manner I did with this assessment by communicating clearly and regularly, researching
