Task Description Part 1 Group academic report Weighting: 20% Word count: 1,000 words maximum Task Description You will need to form groups as early in the term as possible for both parts of Assessment 0. The purpose of this assessment is to provide students with the opportunity to work collaboratively with colleagues to prepare a group presentation and written report that reflects a real business communication issue. You are to choose a real business communication issue that interests you and will assist you with Part 2 of Assessment 0: Group presentation. Please ensure that you read both parts of the assessments before starting part 1. Your chosen business issue must have a theoretical model as its basis, for example Berlo’s Model. Your task is to write about the relationship between the business issue you have chosen and your chosen model. You will need to introduce concepts, relevant theories and models of communication which you must define and reference and then apply to your chosen communication issue so that the issue can be solved. As this will be an academic report you will need to correctly reference your work, both in-text and in the reference list using APA referencing. On-campus students should take advantage of any workshops provided by the Academic Learning Centre with regards to writing and speaking English, delivering oral presentations and academic writing to name just a few topics. Only one copy of the report can be uploaded and it must clearly identify all members of the group, with full name (as appears on University enrolment) and student numbers. Multiple submissions of the same report can trigger academic misconduct or plagiarism investigations but all group members must have contributed equally to the report. You can use headings and sub-headings within the report to make it easier for markers to read and mark and to reflect report format. You must include a reference list with at least 10 academic references, therefore you will need to do a lot of research to find journal articles published after 2010.
