When you work with others on the Group Analytical Report you will experience a number of communication processes in action and have the opportunity to reflect on your role and contribution to the group, and how this group work experience compares with others you have been involved with. You will also receive feedback from your peers on your contribution to group tasks and maintenance of group dyanmics.
For Assessment Item 3 you are required to write an individual and in-depth reflection about your groupwork experience in this unit. The practice of reflecting on your experience and learning will also assist you in identifying your most valuable communication skills and assets in preparation for Assessment Item 4.

Section 1: What have you learned about groups and teams and how will this shape your group work in the future?

Section 3: What is one communication skill you have developed during this group experience, and what is one communication skill you still need to work on? How did you develop this new skill, and how do you plan to improve in the area you have identified?

PS : I’m asian guy in this group. Other members are natives and are women. This is the first time studying in English. I think I’m not good at discussing with different language which is not mother tongue. The thing is just different language. In spite of that points, I made it well. They say my problem was that I lacked confidence in my work. Because when I was chatting or talking in person, I would hesitate to speak out cuz not sure some phrases are right and exact words. I think I might have lack of verbal skills in person or in word. The positive thing is now i could be learning and absorbing lots of knowledges, informations like how to deal with group work and communication skills in this class and in group work.
