Evaluation and Presentation skills
The evaluation and presentation is a key part of your project. During your evaluation you will assess your final product and consider how the learning in your project might help you in the future. Being able to analyse your work against what you had hoped to achieve is essential if you want to be able to recognise the worth of what you have done and figure out where to go next. One way you will evaluate your project with your mentor is by discussing how well you have met and refined your intended success criteria. Your evidence, reflection and planning cycles will also help to provide examples of the work and learning you have done throughout this process.
The learning around presenting is also really useful for you as these skills are essential in many careers and in life in general. Your ability to structure (order and group) your ideas and identify the most effective tools and techniques with which to present them is useful any time you want to engage people visually and verbally. For your impact project presentation it is your task to find the most interesting and useful learning from your project then structure and deliver this in a way that works. Your audience should be fully engaged and understand the ideas you are presenting.
What happens after the semester has ended?
After the presentation has been completed, you may decide to extend the work you have done by rolling your project over into the next semester, or begin a new project. In both cases you will begin working through the four principles again but this time with new learning and a further developed or new product. If you want to continue with the same project you will need to show how you intend to progress the learning you have already done.
