Sketch Model Review
The presentation contributes to a portion of your shared section-wide grade, and all course instructors will participate in the review process. Each lab section (two sections per team) gives a separate presentation. The goal of the presentation is to inform classmates and instructors about concepts that your section is thinking of, and to obtain helpful design feedback early in the process.
You will use feedback from this review to decide which two concepts will be pursued in more detail for the mockup review. The exercise will also help you learn how to present concepts in a formal design review. The word 'concept' is used to imply that we are no longer just proposing big-picture ideas, but we are beginning to flesh out and explore how the ideas might be implemented.
Before working on your sketch models, you may want to review the sketch modeling tutorials.
A video of your presentations will be made available on the course website.
Key presentation elements:
Relevant technical, market, customer needs, and benchmarking data must also be provided. Some examples of sketches and sketch models are provided on the right. You can also view sketch models from other years in the gallery (select a project and then select the sketch models tab). A list of presentation tips and examples (.pdf) has also been prepared by the communication instructors.
Be sure to also check the detailed setup logistics for the presentation.
Instructors will attend the review and meet immediately following the review to discuss each section's work and rank order the presentations. Your section instructor will determine your grade.
After you have received written feedback via email from instructors, complete your milestone reflection in your design notebook.

All presentations will be pre-loaded onto a single presentation computer. A representative of each section must load your section's presentation onto the 2.009 presentation computer between 2:30 and 5:30 PM, and check that media are working correctly. Each section should have the materials for all three concepts in a single file. Please schedule a time slot and a TA will be in the 2.009 computer area to meet you. You will not be able to make changes to your slides after this time. You may use either powerpoint, keynote, or pdf files for your presentations. Please do not use Google slides.
Work in the Pappalardo will stop at the usual 4:45 PM, but you will be able to have access to pickup materials until 6:30 PM. Starting at 5:30 PM, there will be Pizza in the lab.
All presenters should test their slides in the room between 6:30 and 7:00. It is important that the actual presenters check the materials in the room.
Sketch models/presentation props should be in the hall outside of 34-101 prior to 7:00 PM.
Preliminary comments will be provided in class on Friday, and then you will receive written comments by email over the weekend. This allows instructors to provide more feedback than is possible during the short question period during the presentations. Three instructors will be assigned to provide additional feedback for your section. After you have received written feedback via email from instructors, complete your milestone reflection in your design notebook.
Presentation videos and slides will be posted on the results page.
