Group projects: suggested topics

There will be two seminars, one at the end of the autumn term, and one in week 5 of the spring term, where you will join a group of about four speakers for a joint presentation. This will be as much an exercise in organising yourselves to meet up weekly. It is suggested that you do the following in roughly the following order:

1. Divide up research topics; you may choose to elect an MC to introduce and link papers, providing an introduction and conclusion; exchange e-mails

2. Circulate draft presentations to each other

3. Decide what media you would like to use (DVD, OHP, PowerPoint)

4. Dress rehearsal


You will receive a collective mark for the presentation which will come two-thirds from the seminar tutor and one-third from the workshop audience.

Criteria include:

1. Time-keeping - no more than 10 minutes per speaker.

2. Communication skills (audibility, use of audio-visual, eye contact with audience, enthusiasm).

3. Content of individual presentations

4. Coherence of overall presentation
