What went well?
We managed to create a presentation that effectively showed people how to take care of a flute. I think we did well by not reading too much straight from the presentation. We were able to confidently present and name the parts of the instrument.
For the poster, I think my poster did okay in terms of graphics though I think I could’ve had more graphics. In terms of information, I cited sources that I didn’t use just for the sake of uniformity with sections that I did require sources for. I think the poster is eye-catching without absolutely straining the viewer’s eyes.
How did you interact with your group? Was there an equal division of work?
I was unaware of who exactly my group members were until a class before my presentation. Before then, I had created an entire presentation on my own, but so had my group members. In the end, most of my presentation was used, but a few of the slides came from my group members.
Same goes for the poster, except that in the end I handed in one poster of my own and one I did with my group. I barely contributed to the group poster but my own one was done by myself.
What aspects of your presentation would you improve if you had to do this again?
I think I would try and be much, much more organized in terms of finding out who my group members were supposed to be. I would try and make it so that the presentation could be collaborated on more easily (ex. putting it on a Google Presentation instead of a Keynote.) I would read the rubric so that I would be able to ensure that I didn’t miss any aspects of the presentation.
Is your handout clear with detailed specific instructions?
I think my poster was clear enough, though I doubt it would make absolute sense to someone who did not play flute or at least another woodwind instrument. I gave instructions on how to assemble a flute as well as how to take care of it. I mentioned the materials that flutes could be made of but did not mention which are the most common.
Is your handout appropriate for the assignment and reflect the required amount of work?
I hope so. I spent about half an hour on the poster, including searching for graphics as well as compressing the information that I found or had. I think my poster would be able to help people who didn’t know exactly how to take care of their instruments.
