Reflective Piece

During the completion of the group project, I felt that initially it was difficult to allocate tasks

as because of the nature of the essay, the majority of the work was research based and

therefore required good research. To begin with it was discovered by all five group members

that too much information was found, most of which was essentially the same but obviously

worded in different ways. This caused problems as because of the volume of information

found, it took time to identify which information was necessary and which was to be included

within the work. Also it became confusing to keep track of which websites has been used as

the bulk of research was carried out on the internet. Eventually we came to the conclusion that

it would be best that only two people carry out research working together and keep notes of

the web pages. Also they made notes by hand to summarise the key points and therefore put it

into our own words. The other three group members were allocated the task of typing up the

essay in turns once it had been written out by hand with collective input. I had the

responsibility of carrying out the referencing and sorting through what ended up being quite a

number of websites. Another difficulty we came across was synchronising timings to work

together as everyone clearly had different timetables and various commitments. Overall

however I do feel that the project was a success and the team worked well together.

I feel that personally I work best individually as I have more trust in myself than others and

can organise my time to suit me, but did not find it overly stressful working with other people

as my communication skills are quite effective. My time management skills also enabled the

team to be organised as a whole as we were all able to meet up effectively and without any

clashes. We were able to meet quite regularly until the assignment was completed to a

satisfactory standard. Also the notes that were made were clear and easy to follow so the

assignment was easily transferred from a paper version to being typed up on a computer. As

my I.T. skills are also quite good, I was able to type up the essay relatively fast and accurately

and therefore submit it on time. It was easy to follow an essay format as well as every

member of the group has quit extensive experience in writing essays from our academic lives.

Referencing was also done with ease as we have been taught how to effectively reference

within this module. I was responsible for that section and was able to reference accurately and

properly. I believe we worked very well within a group situation and I would work with the

same team members again.
