Last week you began peer reviewing each other's draft review articles. You should then have incorporated your feedback into a revised draft, which should be uploaded as Assignment 4a. (Don't worry if you uploaded the wrong thing-- just send me the revised first draft by email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
TASK 1 (up to 90 mins)
This week, you will do a second round of peer review with a different partner. I said in class that you can work via email, but it would be useful for you to try using Zoom or Skype to work on the text (using the share-screen function). Both can be downloaded for free, and there is information online about sharing screens. (Start by googling "Download [Skype/Zoom]" and then "How to share screen in [Skype/Zoom]"...).
Use the peer review template again-- you can find it below. Contact your peer and swap texts. Agree how you will work (email, physical meeting, Skype/Zoom). Complete the feedback form, and then deliver the feedback to your partner. The whole process should take no more than 90 mins. You then have until next week to upload a new, revised version, taking into account the new feedback. This will be Assignment 4b (due next week on 20.11.2019). I will then give you feedback on that version before you submit the final version of the review article.
TASK 2 (up to 90 mins)
The second thing to do today is to begin working on your presentation. You should already have a topic idea, and I want you to submit a brief outline presentation. Use the template below. Spend no more than 90 mins on this, and submit it as Assignment 5 by Monday 18.11.2019.
First watch the Presentation resources under the tab at the end of the weekly sections on the left. At the end there is a vocabulary list which will help you prepare your presentation, and also an example of what your Assignment 5 might look like when completed. You will find a blank template under Assignment 5, as well as below on this page. Fill this in with your presentation ideas so far.
Practice talks next week
Please note that your practice groups, times, and venues are visible under the section for Week 8. I suggested that you bring a device like a mobile phone or tablet/laptop so that one of your group mates can record you. It is a bit awkward, but most students find it extremely useful to watch themselves do the practice version before the final version. You can send me a link to watch it too if you would like some feedback from me before the final version. We agreed in class that it would be optional whether students present their final presentation in person on 05.12.2019 or by video submission.
