I really enjoyed creating this Project A, Part 2 Presentation. This is the first time I have ever created an audio visual presentation with the hopes of demonstrating my knowledge to date on the Limited Literature Review on Design Collaboration and Multidisciplinary Design Studios.
Introduction: I think my introduction was succinct and to the point. I have studied Design Collaboration and it has led me to further studies of Multidisciplinary Design Studios and the ways in which they use collaboration as a tool to innovate and create design opportunities.
Tone: I tried through out the presentation to pace myself and create a dialogue that would keep the viewer engaged. I asked questions and tried to create a Q&A feel so that they could tell where my though processes had taken me. I tried to remain unbiased but I am certain that I come across as one who is intrigued and likely to try collaboration within my own profession.
Visuals: With each slide I tried to create a connection with the material that I was presenting leaving it a little light and airy and not so visually boring with just text flashing across a screen. I wanted the image to create a connection with the voice and overall concept of the presentation.
Flow: I recorded this presentation using Keynote. It’s the first time I have used the software and I am certain that I will keep practicing so that I may use Keynote to my own advantage. I wrote out a script that helped me keep a constant dialogue with out too many Ums, Uh and pauses. There were a few parts where I did lose my spot which caused a pause a little bit longer than I would have liked.
Timing: I went over my time by 2 minutes. I didn’t realize the presentation was nearly as long as it was as I didn’t feel like I really talked nearly that long. I think if I were to redo it I would remove a few examples of the Multidisciplinary studios and not lose my place half way through the quote I was reading.
This was surely a learning experience. I hope to improve upon this presentation as I find it quite fun to do. If I teach in the future, I hope to be able to create engaging presentation for future courses and classes to support class texts and assignments.
