Learning objective

Students can blend the elements of their findings to create a plausible strategy to use communities to help address their NGO’s design challenge and can explain these findings to their clients in the final live-multi-media presentation and in their final reflective blog post.

This week you are bringing your teamwork together and delivering a multimedia presentation that can be shared online. The final combined, multi-team presentation should be no longer than 9,5 minutes.

As you finalize your work, we suggest that you “test” your drafts BEFORE WEDNESDAY evening with other teams. Use your face to face time to observe how others receive your draft product before you finalize it. You will present your final work to your fellow students and your clients, get feedback, and reflect upon that feedback to consolidate your Project Community learnings.
