In this discussion post, you will analyze the same scenario, but in the forum, you will apply the Orientation-Discussion-Decision-Implementation (ODDI) model (Table 12.2, p. 375 of your text) to make a decision about how your fictional group in the scenario should approach the assignment youâ€™ve been given.
Here is the fictional scenario:
You have been assigned to research Sigmund Freudâ€™s life and work in your Introduction to Psychology course, submitting a 10-page paper on your findings. You have been placed into a group with five members including yourself, with whom you will work on the assignment. The paper is due in three weeks.
When you meet with your group for the first time, it seems that no one wants to take the lead in determining the best approach to your paper. One of your peers spends the entire group meeting checking his phone for texts from his girlfriend, while another group member is completely silent throughout the meeting. Two other group members seem willing to do the work, but do not appear to know where to start.
Now tell us how you would communicate with your fellow group members in completing the required assignment by applying the ODDI model shown below:
The following information, at a minimum, should be present in your discussion post:
- How would you provide an orientation to the assignment for your group?
- What elements would you need to include in your discussion of the assignment?
- What decisions need to be made when completing this group assignment?
- How would you implement your plan to complete the group assignment?
