Week 12: Remaining ‘noticing’ presentations

  • Interim reflection grades will be distributed today (hard copy)
  • Course evaluation will take place at 7pm (I need at least 5 students to be present!)
  • Remaining ‘noticing’ presentations will take place (Yan Yan, Pak Hin, Ka Lok and Vesta)
  • Some clarifications on Reflection Assignment: You need to complete 4 in total; Reflection 2 and 3 should be on “Noticing”, and you only need to choose one from 4a and 4b.

Week 13: No class; all 4 reflections due (reflection grades will be distributed via email as soon as they are received)

Week 14: Poster presentations

The format of the poster presentations next week is as follows:

  • The presentations will take on a “road show” format so that we can share, learn and interact comfortably. Each student will prepare material to be posted on a large colourful poster provided by me at 6:30pm in class. Preparation time will be given from 6:30pm to 7pm.
  • The poster will fit 5 pieces of A4 papers (3 portrait and 2 landscape, see picture); be sure to enlarge the font size so that the text can be read at a distance. See some poster examples
  • The presenter should bring their pilot study instruments (survey questions, interview questions, etc) to showcase what they have done for their research.
  • The students in class will be broken into 2 groups. Group 1 will put up their posters in different parts of the room from 7pm to 7:40pm; Group 2 from 7:45pm to 8:25pm. The students who are not presenting during a given time slot will walk around freely to interact with the presenter like a “road show”.
  • Class will be dismissed at 8:30pm.

The poster presentation is a requirement for the course; all students will treat it as an important part of the course. Passing grade will not be given if the student does not complete a presentation. Therefore, students who are absent during Week 13 will have to make up the work using PowerPoints, and I will share their slides with everyone on my website.

Announcements for Term Paper:

  • Final paper is due on Dec 16 at 11:59pm (extensions can be given upon written request). Veriguide report should be attached in the email if you wish to submit the assignment electronically, along with a PDF file of the paper. Otherwise, they will not be graded!
