This week’s work was focused on the preparation and presentation to the tutors of our oral presentations. I took the time to look at the exemplars that were posted and found them diverse and revelatory. There were things I liked and disliked about each, but all displayed impressive depth and critical analyses of their influences, motivations and inspiration. These are things I have not given enough thought before.
In the tutor review I got some very valuable feedback on the presentation content and the project which allowed me to think about the project in a different and more sustainable way. It pointed out deficiencies in the depth of my research that I need to rectify. I have been so focused on trying to decide what I wanted to do and how I might go about it that I hadn’t focused enough on critical analyses and research.
After the review I had a better frame of reference to re-examine and understand the exemplar presentations which helped a great deal in preparing the next draft of my oral presentation. I have been struggling a bit with technology trying to find a platform to make the presentation come to life as I envision it. I believe the content is now nearly nailed and the project Coul Links in much clearer in my mind and in the presentation. A couple more tweaks on the presentation platform to improve the polish and I will be there.
