FIT1049 Assignment 2: Contemporary Issues in IT Professional Practice

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this assignment is to bring together the skills and knowledge learnt so far in the unit. You will work in a
team to conduct a research project on an issue relating to IT professional practice, and you will produce the following
deliverables:

1) PART A: a 15-minute virtual group presentation on the topic your group selected (i.e., 13% of the final
assessment of the unit; to be held in the Week 11 tutorial), and
2) PART B: An individual report on your reflections on the teamwork (i.e. 13% of the final assessment of the unit;
due at the end of Week 12).

Carefully read this document, as marks will be deducted in each case where any of the specified requirements have not
been addressed.


PART A: 15 minute virtual group presentation

Assessment value: 13% of assessment for the unit

Submission method: The presentation will be held in the Week 11 tutorial. All the team members will need to
contribute not only to the development of the presentation (including research), but also to the delivery of the
presentation.

Tasks: The presentation will be on a topic related to issues covered in the unit, and will need to be specifically related to
IT professional practice issues and/or contemporary issues related to IT professions and their practice. Your team will
discuss this as part of the tutorial in Weeks 7 and 8, and your team will need to agree on the topic.

Once you have agreed with your tutor on your team’s topic, you are then to conduct research in order to develop a
presentation that is suitable for an audience of undergraduate students. The aim of the presentation is to inform the
audience of the topic by providing an overview of the topic, and any recent and current developments. Your group will
need to use more than ten purposefully selected credible sources, including at least five academic sources, in order to
develop this presentation.

Your presentation will be delivered virtually in the Week 11 tutorial. Teams are expected to use appropriate visual aids,
such as MS PowerPoint. Each team member must participate in the presentation.

Criteria for assessment: All students in a team will get the same mark for the following assessment criteria:

● Selection and organisation of content
● Coordination of multiple speakers
● Quality of visual aids

Each student will receive an individual mark for the following assessment criteria:

● Voice and language
● Non-verbal communication
● Presentation of content

Also refer to the marking sheets provided separately for the details of these criteria.



PART B: Individual report: your reflections on the teamwork

Assessment value: 13% of assessment for the unit

Due date: The report is due at 23:55 on Sunday the 8th November 2020.

Submission method: To be submitted online through Moodle. Penalties apply for late submission - 10% per day.

Task: In a report format, write a reflection of around 1,000 words on the process your team followed in order to
complete Assignment 2, your analysis and reflections on your own contributions to this process, and how you could
improve the ways you contribute to such teamwork next time in a similar situation. Make sure your reflections are
grounded upon the concepts and theories covered in this unit. This is not a research task, and no additional research is
expected (beyond your Assignment 2 teamwork observations, and knowledge of the concepts and theories covered in
FIT1049). If you refer to a theory or source of information in your reflection, however, you are expected to apply APA
referencing as usual. You will be provided with detailed instructions for this task in the Week 12 tutorial.

Criteria for assessment: Each student will write an individual reflection, which will be assessed separately for each
student. Criteria for assessment are:

● Content of reflection
● Organisation of reflection
● Quality of writing
● Quality of presentation
● Appropriate citation of sources

Also refer to the marking sheet provided separately for the details of these criteria.


GROUP ALLOCATION, TOPIC SELECTION AND MEETINGS

During the Week 7 tutorial your tutor will assign you to a team of 4 - 5 students. During this tutorial, your team will have
to:

● nominate your team leader and have this arrangement approved by your tutor;
● suggest some potential topics for the assignment, so that your tutor can provide initial feedback for the team’s
further consideration. Your team will need to agree on a finalised topic, approved by your tutor, by Week 8.

While undertaking Assignment 2, your team is expected to hold weekly meetings outside the tutorials. Meetings should
be held in person at a suitable location decided upon by the team. All members of your team should agree on time
and location for these weekly meetings in order for all to be present.

It is also advisable that your team produces minutes/notes for each meeting, which are to be circulated to all team
members after each meeting. Team members may rotate the role of chairing the meeting or leave this role to the team
leader.

Concerns regarding the teamwork (e.g. dispute between members, continuing lack of contributions from a specific
member) should be brought to the attention of your Group Tutor as early as possible. Your team also has the right to
assume the discontinuation of a team member to participate as part of the team, if they do not come to team meetings
for a period of more than three weeks, after reasonable attempts to contact the team member have been made. The
team needs to explain the situation to their tutor in writing, including the dates of the meetings, any meeting
minutes/notes to date, and how they attempted to contact the team member.
