Second Follow–up on Leading a Group Project

Follow-up to First entry on Leading a Group Project from Jay's Blog

Action points

1. I aim to get involved in a group project, either academic or otherwise, before the end of the year. This will enable me to gain experience in working within a team and provide me with opportunities to make leadership decisions. I will achieve this first step by checking noticeboards and forums for opportunities.

Since completing this workshop, I have been involved in Warwick SU Inspire programme, where I am working as part of a team of 5 in a school within Birmingham, to raise the aspirations of secondary school pupils.

2. I aim to take a proactive role in any group tasks or teamwork events that I encounter, by providing input at each stage of the task/project, and will reflect on my success before the end of the task/project.

With the Inspire project, I believe that I have took an active role; being the only member of my team with teaching experience (A few months lecturing at Henley College Coventry, and a few years part time tutoring) I have assumed leadership of the group. With this, I have helped to organise and chair meetings and have written the session plans to ensure that the school visits run smoothly.

Group tasks that I have been involved in this term also include the maintenance of Warwick university's wind turbine, with Engineers Without Borders society.

3. I aim to take the first steps towards an executive role within a society at Warwick, by being regularly involved in at least one society, and making myself known as an active contributor. I will again reflect on my success before the start of next term.

I have been in discussion with an existing member of the exec for Warwick Inspire, and am on my way to becoming a future exec member. My successful participation in the scheme and my continuation into next academic year should ensure that I have a good chance of becoming a member of the exec. I have realised that even without executive status, I can still equally make suggestions, and participate in a meaningful way, hopefully making young students change their mind for the better about whether or not to go to university.

    Hello Jay
    I’m pleased to see that you’re still persevering with the blogs for this workshop, but you now need to speed up your progress towards completing this within a suitable time frame, eg by the end of term, by indentifying some more specific and measurable action points that you can reflect on in terms of skills development. I suggest you might focus on the Inspire project to do this. does this make sense? Please get back to me if you need any further help.

    Best wishes

    Mary
