Introduction to Team Working in Computing

This unit will provide you with the opportunity to develop effective skills for team working in the context of computing. You will develop co-operative working skills which will include negotiation of goals, roles and responsibilities in the development of a team based Information and Communication Technology (I.C.T.) project.

Candidates, both individually and as a team, will present the project outcomes within the timescale prescribed by the team. Individual progress will be tracked against a project plan and the team will develop skills in updating the plan to ensure that the project is delivered on time.

Individual team members will contribute to any necessary research and to documentation of the group’s activities.

Each candidate will develop skills in evaluation and will critically evaluate the contributions of themselves and fellow team members.

On completion of the Unit you should be able to:

  1. Effectively participate in planning and organising a co-operative I.C.T. project
  2. Participate in the management of a co-operative I.C.T. project and research and carry out agreed project tasks against the schedule and within the remit of the project role
  3. Review own and group skills demonstrated throughout the co-operative I.C.T. project

In addition to development of the project each individual must keep a journal as evidence of research and evaluation that they have carried out in relation to the project.
