  1. Preparing for the Seminar 4 Conference PowerPoints and Research Questions

  2. Plan for the Day Overview of conference Building from a question PowerPoint power-ups Make it so

  3. 1. Overview of conference

  4. Concurrent Sessions

  5. A problem Your presentations for this class will be 10 minutes per person. Your presentations for the conference, I have very recently learned, will be 10 minutes per group. : (

  6. A problem My advice: compose the 10-minute solo presentation, then, present a two-minute teaser: Invite your audience to view the full presentation / essay on our course site!

  7. 2. Building from a question

  8. Solo time (10 minutes) • In the middle of a big research project, it’s easy to lose the forest for the trees. Take a minute to write down the question you really want to answer with your research. • Then, working from memory, make two lists: • things you now know in response to that question, and • things you still want to know.

  9. Reflection (5 minutes) • Look over your lists: is there anything important you’ve forgotten to include? • Suppose we define an essay, in part, as a piece of writing which shows the author thinking. Of the items you've just written down, which form the best starting places for thinking? Mark your top three.

  10. Group time (15 minutes) • Alphabetically by first name, read out the questions you wrote down. • Before each new question, say back the question to the satisfaction of the author. • If this means re-wording the question, write down the new wording. • When all are satisfied with the questions, figure out a logical order for your group to present in. Write this down, too.

  11. Group time (15 minutes) • Alphabetically by first name, read out the questions you wrote down. • Before each new question, say back the question to the satisfaction of the author. • If this means re-wording the question, write down the new wording. • When all are satisfied with the questions, figure out a logical order for your group to present in. Write this down, too.

  15. PowerPoint power-ups

  16. Think about it • You’ve seen a lot of powerpoints. • The medium is neutral: it can be terribleor terrific. • So what’s the difference?
