  • Both A2-Part A (oral presentation) and A2-Part B (written report) must be on the same case study

PART 2A – Oral Presentation (15%) – conducted in class in weeks 6 - 9.

Working in small groups of four (4) members each, you will prepare an oral presentation on a case study. You are required to identify, analyze and discuss the ethical issue/s in the case study drawing on concepts, theories and one ethical decision-making model examined in the unit. The group is to divide the work across members and prepare the oral presentation and PowerPoint slides to be uploaded to Moodle in Week 6 by each member of the group and presented in class by each member of the group. Each student will present for 5 minutes, for a total of 20 minutes per group. * Students are to ensure that their presentation is saved on a USB stick to be used during their presentation.

The above are brief notes only. You must read carefully the Assignment 2 – Instructions and Case Studies document in Moodle under the Assignments tab which includes the marking criteria.

*Group size can vary depending on student numbers in class. The 5-minute presentation remains the same for each student in the group.

PART 2B – Written Report (30%)

Due Date: Sunday of Week 10

Word Count800 words per student contribution; As an indication/example, the total word count for a 4-person group* would be 3200 words (plus or minus 10%), excluding the list of references. Please do not go under 10% of the word limit, and do not exceed 10% over the word limit.

The following is a short briefing of instructions for preparing the Report. You must carefully read the document, Assignment 2 – Instructions and Case Studies document in Moodle, under the Assignments     tab, which includes the marking criteria.

Structure of the Report

While an oral presentation with PowerPoint slides is deemed satisfactory to capture the critical aspects of the case, you must expand on these aspects in the written report. You cannot use bullet points in the Report as is usually done in oral presentation slides. The Report must be written using well-structured full sentences, following the report writing conventions for academic work.

The final Report to be submitted must have all sections prepared by each member of the group collated into a single, coherent whole. There must be only ONE Introduction, ONE Conclusion and ONE list of references. For more detailed information on how to prepare the Report, you must read the document titled,  Assignment 2 – Instructions and Case Studies in Moodle, under the Assignments tab, which also includes the marking criteria.

*Group size can vary depending on student numbers at the time of allocation. The 800-word contribution by each student in the group remains the same regardless of group size.

Group Minutes for Parts A and B

Group work can be very rewarding, but it can also present challenges in terms of coordination, division of labor, and timeliness. When issues arise, the work can be affected by group tensions, mis- communication and ultimately errors and delays.

To assist with the marking process, groups need to meet regularly, starting as early as possible, i.e., as soon as you all know who is in your group. We shall endeavor to create the groups in Week 1 of the term. To keep track of your work as a group, during these meetings,  you should keep a group work journal and write up notes of what was discussed, how the work was divided up among members, plans of action  and timelines you have set, next meeting dates/times, and the names of members who attended the meeting, along with their e-mail addresses and phone numbers (for ease of reference, connection, and interactions with one another). The notes need to be brief (e.g., use bullet points), but they need to be accurate. Please read the following:

  • The Minutes are essential to affect fairness and equitability of work allocation among group members. The Minutes also assist in affecting fair assessment of everyone's
  • Everyone in the group will be assigned the same mark for A2.
  • The Minutes will also help your lecturer and tutor to mark you fairly, especially if there is a dispute among members due to an obvious inequity in the workload, division of labor or attendances at group meetings, etc. Without the Minutes, resolving disputes in a group by your tutor will be difficult.
  • Furthermore, the Minutes are essential for both Part A and Part B of Assignment 2; each part of the assignment must include the relevant group Minutes (copy into the last slide in Part A and copy as an appendix to the Report (after the list of references for Part B).
  • An example of how you can set out the Minutes can be found in the A2 Assessment tab in

  •  If you have any trouble receiving feedback or responses from members of the group, please email your tutor/lecturer as soon as possible with details so they can intervene sooner rather than later.

  • Write Part B early on and circulate to all your group members. Each segment by each individual student must be read by all other members of the group, so circulate your share of the work EARLY on.
  • Students whose oral presentation is in the latter weeks (e.g., week 8 or 9) MUST begin preparing the Presentation Slides and Written Report well before then as the presentation slides are due for submission in Moodle in Week 6 and the written report is due for submission in Moodle in Week 10.
  • Once you have all agreed on the different sections of the written report, you must incorporate the various parts into a single document.
  • One student will be assigned ‘Lead’ by their group members. They are to collate the final versions of sections from their group members and re-circulate to the rest of the group.

  • Although there is a Lead student in the group, all members of the group are responsible for editing, proofing, and for checking against any academic misconduct, regardless of ‘whose’ section of the report it isPlease note that reporting, investigation and repercussions/penalties for academic misconduct on any part of the assignment will impact all members of the group. It is essential that you all take responsibility for academic integrity.
  • Please attend all classes, without any fail, for more information and Q&A on how to prepare the Report. All student assignment submissions must be made through Turnitin/Moodle.

Corresponding with your tutor on group work.

Whenever a group has an email query for the lecturer/tutor, the student authoring the email MUST include all other students of their group in the email. This goes in the interest of transparency, where all group members must be informed and in agreement with queries placed (practice informed consent, fidelity and trust within the group!), and take responsibility for incorporating or taking note of any information from the lecturer/tutor (as a means of practicing professionalism and integrity). Failure to do so will result in the lecturer/tutor not responding to your query.

At all times, emails to the lecturer/tutor should include full name of sender, other group members’ email addresses in the ‘recipients’ box, the unit’s name and assignment number, the tutorial batch number, and the question/topic number selected in the message box, followed by the query.
