The brief for this assessment is as follows:

For SC1, students will be allocated into groups of a maximum of 6 members who must work together to prepare for a 20-minute group presentation by answering all four questions of a case study. Students should read the case study carefully and provide an in-depth analysis to answer the questions successfully. They are expected to demonstrate thorough research skills, and capabilities of using relevant theoretical concepts, academic resources, and secondary data to provide strong arguments and in-depth analysis in answering the questions and useful recommendations/solutions for the case study. The seminar tutors will allocate the case studies to each group in week 2. The case studies and questions can be found on the Moodle site where the assessment brief for SC1 is posted too. All the members of each team will normally be awarded the same mark for their group oral presentation, provided they equally contribute to preparing the presentation and that they attend their presentation.

The group presentation PPT slides (accompanied by any relevant notes and the reference list) must be uploaded to Moodle by each student individually by the 13th of November 2023 at 4pm. No submissions will be accepted after the cut-off deadline. Extensions do not apply to group presentations.

The 20-minute group presentations will take place in weeks 7, 8 and 9 during the seminar times and the schedule/order will be provided by the seminar tutors by the end of week 6. All the students must attend the presentation weeks, must support their colleagues, and must participate in the in- class feedback.
