First session pdf

File:Session-1-slides.pdf

Be prepared to give an account of where you are at with your self-directed research and talk about what you want to achieve this year.

Think concretely about what you want to make, how you are going to make it and why you are going to make it.


Consider:

What possibilities are open to you? (It is understood that making a final project is a process and things will change as you work on it)

What material from the 'text on method' you wrote last trimester could be useful for the proposal?

What material have you written (descriptions of work , assignments for last year's methods class &c) which you can use?

Review the written feedback from tutors you got from the last assessment and have it available for reference during the first session
