December 6: First Round of Final Presentations

Your presentations are due before the start of class next week, 12/13. This week, we’ll begin final presentations; students presenting this week can share works in progress and use the discussion to refine their projects over the course of the next week.

On deck today: Andrew, Briana, Diana, Danielle, Jessica, Larisa, Sarath, Tim

Today’s presenters will share their work and lead a short discussion. Because we’ll need to fit in eight presentations, leaving time for transitions, tech set-up (and the inevitable snafus), and a mid-way break, we should allot no more than 15 minutes to each student. You should plan to talk for no more than 10 minutes, leaving five for discussion.

The tone of these presentations will be more celebratory than evaluative; you won’t be graded on the “professionalism” of your presentation. Still, you should prepare what you plan to share, and have the relevant media queued up, since you can’t guide us through every facet of your atlas within the allotted time. You might aim to offer a brief overview of your atlas’s overarching themes, areas, goals, etc., then guide us through a few applications.

This week, for the first half of class, we can explore topics or practice skills of your choosing. We’ll dedicate the remainder of our time either to (1) an open lab, during which you can work on your final projects and solicit feedback from your classmates and instructors; or (2) our first few final presentations.
