* 1. Hi

This survey and the one at the end of the unit have been created to help me and my colleagues at Curtin University and your teachers to gather information about your use of information technology and having you work in teams. It is collected as non-identifiable data which means you cannot be identified and the data is processed by Survey Monkey. The research has been approved by the University ethics committee

Participation in the survey is voluntary and you can stop doing the the survey at any time. If you answer this question you are agreeing to complete the survey and participate in the research. Thank you very much for your help
