Week 15: Date TBD: Final Presentations

The New School didn’t map out the academic calendar very carefully and consequently forgot to schedule a 15th session of all Wednesday classes. Doh! We’ll have to determine when to hold our final class: Immediately after our December 12 session, as an Act II? Sometime during the weekend of the 14th? Or during the university’s official make-up day, on Tuesday, December 18?

During class, each student will share his/her work and lead a short discussion. Because we’ll need to fit in X presentations, leaving time for transitions, tech set-up (and the inevitable snafus), and a mid-way break, we should allot no more than X minutes to each student. You should plan to talk for no more than X minutes, leaving X 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.
