Finalize the CLC Agreement.
CLC Assignment: Evidence-Based Project (EBP)
Group work has benefits and liabilities. Everyone assigned to a CLC is expected to equally participate in the work in terms of time and quality of effort. The assignment should be apportioned to make the best use of the strengths of individual team members. Some of you are natural leaders. Your strengths can be your greatest liabilities. No one wants to be bossed around no matter how skilled the boss. Honest communication is critical to effective group work. The best way to avoid conflict is to set very clear expectations. Then, if someone does not do what is expected, he or she can be referred to the original agreement rather than have the confrontation become personal.
At the end of the project, students will have an opportunity to evaluate each other. These evaluations will be taken into consideration when grading individuals within the group. The grade will be given for the project as compared to the rubric for evaluation. Depending on your evaluations, individual grades will be equal to or less than the overall grade. Course faculty are able to observe the process in the CLC forum. If your work takes place outside the forum, this information will be absent. Be certain, even if you communicate via e-mail, phone, or face-to-face, to record the communication in the CLC forum.
NOTE: The final course of your program will require you to develop and implement an EBP guideline. This is your opportunity to learn the process and perhaps even identify an area of interest. Your choice of a topic for the capstone course should be related to your area of specialty. Each course you take will provide you with the opportunity to investigate theory and empirical literature to identify the relevant evidence you will need to complete this project. The more effort you expend now to learn this process, the easier it will be for you to complete the program efficiently.
