This is a group assignment with specific individual components.
Groups choose from the list of topics that are based on the lectures. However, in this assignment you must do better than recycle the lecture. You are to research your topic in more depth providing evidence of independent research. The set of topics will be provided from which your group must choose on a ‘first-come, first-served basis’.
Note that each topic has a group component to which each group member must contribute. However there are also specific individual components which have been defined.
- Presentation: You will deliver your research topic findings in a presentation at any time during the trimester. The presentation is primarily assessed on presentation technique. Your tutor will make suggestions on improving the academic quality of your assignment.
Written report: You may improve the quality of the assignment for the written report at any time up until submission date at the end of the trimester. It is at this point that the academic quality of your research is assessed.
