Down to the last steps in the methods course road trip, plus one extra that’ll land you extra credit towards your Participation / Online Journal (20%) course grade…
1. Symposium Feedback (required, due Sunday, 4/26, 11:59 pm )
– Attend one of the symposiums sessions. You can find the schedule here.
– Afterwards, by 11:59 pm on Sunday, 4/25, send Dr. Fernsebner (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email with an evaluation of the session you attended. Please include this evaluation in the text of your email (not as an attachment.) Here’s what you should include in your evaluation: the titles of the talks you heard; your own impressions of the effectiveness of the talks — think of this as an opportunity to explore approaches to giving a public presentation:
– what did you see each speaker do in their approach that worked well (or less well) re: organization of content, vocal style, body language, engagement with audience, eye contact, style and use of visuals, etc.
– Other aspects of content & analysis itself, and its presenting, that you found interesting or effective?
– What are the take-aways for you as you look head to your own 485 presentation?
