Please remember to return your presentation in the designated Assignment folder + supporting material folder AND also on Thursday via mail to Marja Pyykkö Marja email@example.com.
Rane will also make sure she gets them on Friday morning.
Remember that you don't need to present (or explain) everything on Friday, but we need to have all your plans in writing (in one document). So basically you present us the outcome, and bullet points how you got there.
are the presenation times. Since this course was mostly independent
studying in groups, we emphasize that it's relevant to be present all
day Friday, not only during your slot. Seeing and discussing how other
groups have approached the breakdowns is essential to this course. And
now also to see how documentarists approach a script. Since there isn't
one way of doing things.
30 min presentations + 30 min discussion. Please give time for each member of your team to have their say.
