In the week 8 class you will be given a short case study to work on in teams of 3.
You need to form teams before the week 8 class and each team will need at least one member with a laptop to complete and submit the excel assignment.
• As this is an ‘unseen’ case study it will only be available in the week 8 class.
• Learning Outcome 4: Develop and reflect on techniques for working in teams to solve management accounting problems using excel spreadsheets.
Answers to be submitted via the portal in the week 8 class (one excel file per team) – 15%.
Individual reflection submission via turnitin by week 9 – 5%.
Write your reflection on the team experience, incorporating some of the following aspects:
• Group description e.g. members
• My role
• Others’ roles
• Group stages
• Conflict in group and, if applicable, how the conflict was resolved
• Leadership and decision making in the group
• Ways that the group experience worked well and ways it could have been improved
• Your response to experiences, opinions, events or new information
• Your response to thoughts and feelings
• A way of thinking to explore your communication practice
• An opportunity to gain self-knowledge
• A way to achieve clarity and better understanding of the ways you communicate
• A chance to develop and reinforce writing skills
• A way of making meaning out of what you study
Good reflective writing usually involves four key elements:
1. Reporting and responding to a critical issue or experience;
2. Relating this issue or experience to your own knowledge in this field;
3. Reasoning about causes and effects of this issue/experience according to relevant theories or literature and/or similarities or differences with other experiences you've had; and
4. Reconstructing your thinking to plan new ways to approach the issue or engage in similar experiences in the future.
Reflective writing is different from other university styles, such as academic essays. It uses ‘I’ and ‘we’ and has the following language features:
1. People are added to the writing when the writer is expressing personal experiences or opinions e.g. I, me, you, we, us.
2. People (i.e. I, me, you, we, us) are removed when referring to the theory.
3. The actions (verbs) are usually those of feeling and thinking e.g. feeling, felt, considered, experienced, wondered, remembered, discovered, learned.
4. When reflecting the language is usually modified e.g. may, perhaps, might. QUT library (2014) Reflective writing
