Mid Point Review
This is the final week and it is half way through Unit 1 (and 1 third of the way through your whole MA).
For the Mid Point Review you must prepare a 5 minute video presentation of your work so far. This can be a simple slide show of images and your voice recorded over it but it must only be 5 minutes long. On that day we will go through each presentation for both students in London and online. We will watch the 5 minute presentation then there will be a 5 minute discussion about your work BUT during this discussion you will not be allowed to speak or type your answers, you must remain silent and listen to the comments and discussion.
This is a big challenge but it means you will gain a very useful insight into how people see your work and your progress so far. Your video MUST be on your blog, use youtube or vimeo and embed it on your blog.
Your video must be on your blog by Monday 16 March by 10.00 UK time. You must then watch all the videos before Tuesday so you can prepare some comments and thoughts about each other.
Mid Point Review is part of the formal assessment for Unit 1, you will not get a grade at this stage but taking part is a requirement for Unit 1 (remember at this point you are only half way through Unit 1) — the assessment is not just making a video presentation it is also about your contribution to the overall discussion.
So, here is my video: enjoy, (or even better: engage) but make sure you watch it in full screen mode.
