The first piece of assessed work on the course is a group presentation. These will run in the classes, from weeks 3-8. They will be produced in small groups, and delivered either in person in the relevant seminar. This gives you a chance to explore your ideas with a small group of other students in your seminar group and then share them more widely with others.The presentation must be related to the topic of the week in which you present it.
The presentations will take you about the same amount of time to prepare as a short essay, so you need to start preparing them in good time.
Please read this before you start preparing your presentation:
To find your fellow presenters, with whom you'll need to liaise to prepare the presentation, see the sign up sheet.
Please don't change the week you've signed up for without checking with me first.
