Team Ground Rules and Guidelines

Goal: Work together as a team to produce the best possible results. Collaborate to expose strengths of each team member. Share the load so that one team member does not shoulder all of the responsibility.

Assignment Completion: Each team member must have their part of the collaborative assignment to the team leader by 9:00pm on Sunday night prior to assignment due date. This allows the team member putting together the assignment enough time to piece together the assignment and have the team approve it prior to submission.
Expectations for Time Management and Involvement

All team members will communicate via email, phone or student website. The Team Leader will coordinate with each team member via email or phone if timelines are not met or if the team leader has questions. If a team member has an emergency and cannot complete their portion of the assignment, that team member must notify the Team Leader immediately. The Team Leader will coordinate and assign additional task to cover the team member if necessary.

Ensuring Fair and Even Contribution and Collaboration
What strategy will you use to ensure that all team members are contributing and collaborating appropriately? Describe the communication strategy you will use if a team member is not contributing and collaborating effectively. How will the team manage conflicts between team members?

Each member of the team will do their part of the assignment. They will commit to completing their part within the allotted time frame. If a team member is not communicating and collaborating, it will be up to the Team Leader to address the issue with the team member and try to get resolution. Team members who do not contribute their assigned portion of the assignment prior submission will not receive credit.

Special Considerations
What do you, as a team, agree will make this team experience different from past team experiences?

The most important thing to insure success of the team is communication. Everyone needs to make sure that other team members know if they are having issues. If a team member has a question that is not being answered completely via e-mail or classroom communication, a phone call should be made to sort out the question. Messages received via text message should also be notated within the team forum. If there are assignments that require extra team involvement, it may become necessary to meet outside of class.
