The task requires you to work both individually and as part of a group in applying the Giving Voice to Values framework to a given scenario.
You need to complete both the individual and the group requirements to pass this assessment.
Groups and Scenario allocation
Your lecturer will let you know which group of students you will work with for this assessment task. Your lecturer will assign each group a scenario.
Group Presentation dates
Group presentations will take place during Week’s 8-10. Your lecturer will inform you of the exact date and time for your group’s presentation.
INDIVIDUAL ACTION PLAN
Your task is to prepare a written action plan.
You must submit this to the lecturer the week BEFORE your group presentation.
- Read either “Ways of thinking about our Values”, “Giving Voice to Values: A brief introduction” – or both – which are available on the Moodle page.
- Read the scenario your group has been assigned.
Place yourself in the position of the person in your assigned scenario: what should you say, to whom, when and how?
In order to answer these questions consider the following:
- What are the main arguments you are trying to counter? That is, what are the
reasons and rationalizations you need to address?
- What is at stake for the key parties (including those who disagree with you)?
- What levers/arguments could you use to influence those with whom you disagree?
- What is your most powerful and persuasive response to the reasons and
rationalizations you need to address? To whom should the arguments be made? When and in what context?
- Contact other members of your group and arrange some times to meet for group work. Your lecturer may suggest that group work takes place during scheduled tutorial times.
- During group meetings discuss the scenario your group has been assigned.
- During group meetings each student will briefly discuss their individually prepared action plan with other members of the group and the other members of the group will verbally give feedback.
- As a group you will then work together to write a group script, and allocate roles for your group presentation of the script including how you would work through the dilemmas arising from the scenario.
