For this assessment you must undertake a piece of secondary research as part of a group of 3 to 4 students. The topics will be allocated to groups during the seminar sessions by week 11. The group is then to present its findings formally to the class as a presentation of between 15-20 minutes per group, with illustrative material, during weeks 20 to 22. The use of a professional presentation package such as Powerpoint is expected.


GROUP PRESENTATION ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

i?¶ Present information as part of a small group, professionally and accurately.
The time is limited to15-20 minutes.

i?¶ Prepare illustrative material in the form of handouts/slides to aid group understanding and involvement where appropriate.

i?¶ Manage a small secondary research problem successfully as part of a small group. You must demonstrate the ability to collect, sort and summarise your research material.

i?¶ Work successfully as a group member.

GROUP ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY AND SWOT ANALYSIS

Following the seminar presentations your group is to hand in an evaluation of information sources used for the presentation. This is to take the form of an annotated bibliography of around 1,000 words and should be handed in during week 26.

You will have investigated your topic over a number of weeks, so keep a careful record of all your information sources. For the assessment write them out in the form of a bibliography; this then needs to be annotated by your group to show which aspects were used by yourselves and what their meanings and inferences are.

An annotation requires that you describe the source in detail with some critique. You should discuss such issues as value, up to date, spread of information, reliability, accuracy of data, bias etc. Complete your bibliography with an overall evaluation as to the range, spread, reliability etc of your data. You could also usefully add your comments on information that was hard to find or that you could not find but would have liked to.

You should accompany this with your SWOT analysis. The information for this will have been gained whilst watching the presentations over the last three weeks a you can use information and sources from the others as well. Now summarise what you have learned in the form of a SWOT analysis of not more than 1,000 words i.e. this assignment allows your group 2,000 words in total. Note that this is a SWOT analysis of your example; NOT of your own presentation.

1. In consultation with your tutor, each group of 4/5 students is to choose a different major nationally supported cultural or sporting event that requires some form of bidding process or rotation to attain i.e. Olympics, Winter Olympics, World Cup, Commonwealth Games, World Athletics Championship [even Eurovision] et al.

2. What was the bidding process to attain this event? What did the country that won it do to both help attain it and organise it?

3. How much was the initial bid? What was the final bill? What were the costs and benefits of hosting it? Was it cost-effective and what were the wider reasons for holding it?

4. A personal (group) viewpoint as to the effects or otherwise; was it the right thing to do? If so, why? If not, why not? What do YOU think?

You need to choose one of the larger international events as this will be easier to collect information on a there will be no problem in finding out the relevant information as it is covered exhaustively in the media. Note that each student group, in consultation with the tutor, must choose a different event.
