This is a sketch of how I have visualised my MDP presentation which will be delivered at 1300hrs on Tuesday 17 May 2011. The venue is the MASTERS of DESIGN STUDIO. I am last to go from all the other full tiome and part-time students – so no pressure then? The presentatioon is a strictly controlled 15 minutes, which based on tutorial advice, will use approx 15 slides at a delivery pace of one slide per minute. 100 words per minute is the average delivery for oral presentations. As I fine-tune my powerpoint for the presentation I realise that I have to be very organised but relaxed. I am used to makeing presentations to students in my job as an FE lecturer, but I am delivering to an academic and advisory panel of 3-4 people, who are assessing my project development work for MINDFUL DESIGN PRACTICE. I have checked my presentation against the assessment criteria and I look forward to delivering it confidently and succinctly tomorrow. Off to rehearse it again!
Tutorial meetings with course advisers is always of great benefit to my design thinking. Presenting a clear definitive proposal for the MDes project is vital for successfully completing the MINDFUL DESIGN PRACTICE MODULE. Today was a refocus of my design activity for the research project and enables me to move on to develop a assessed presentation.
THE PROJECT HAS TO BE PRESENTED TO MEET THE FOLLOWING ASSESSMENT CRITERIA:
RATIONALE AND CONTENT : how the project fits in the world and who will benefit ?
METHODS : which design methods have been selected or created ?
PRODUCTION : what prototypes have been produced + level of detail ?
PROJECT MANAGEMENT : how timeline of activity is mapped to meet endpoint?
A 15 minute POWERPOINT PRESENTATION is being developed to deliver to the assessment deadline for Tuesday 17 May 2011.
