TASK

You are required to prepare for this Assessment Item by:

1. READING the Subject outline,

2. COMPLETING Topic 4 Research Writing for Task 1 Final Report

3. COMPLETING Topic 5 Communicating a report (oral presentation) for Task 2 Presentation

Project Closure is an important final step in project management. As part of closing down

your project, you are required to communicate about the results, findings, conclusion and

lessons learnt from your Project.

Report and Seminar Script Length: While the word length for the Report and Seminar is

stated at 1500 to 2000 words approx., this may vary due to the nature of the project, advice

from your lecturer and presentation modes. You are the best judge at this stage on length,

together with advice from your lecturer. So your Report and Seminar Presentation can be done

with some variation as long as you complete the TWO steps as described below. Use the

marking criteria as a checklist for completed tasks.

WHAT TO DO:

You will be asked to communicate about your project in both written and oral formats:

1. Task 1: Final Report (as PDF and as a Final Post in Project Blog)

2. Task 2: Seminar Presentation

The seminar is an oral, live to class or pre-recorded presentation as advised by your

lecturer, as to the best format and presentation logistics for each class.

Submit to Turnitin both a cover page with Blog address (or Cloud site access link for

big files), the Report and the Seminar presentation file (or cloud site access or

Website etc.).

The intended audience could be your peers as well as invited guests and academics.

1. TASK 1 Final Report in the Blog

1. For the written report, this should be a final blog entry to close the project.

(NOTE: your local lecturer may suggest an alternative report format)

2. The written report entry can discuss the results, findings, conclusion and

lessons learnt from your Project Research Aims and Outcomes.

3. NOTE: the content of the Report should also be a the source for developing

the script or outline for the presentation seminar in Step 2.

4. Ensure that the Project Blog Report is your own work and has not been

submitted elsewhere and complies with the University’s requirements for

academic integrity.

2. TASK 2 Presentation Seminar

1. The time has been deliberately limited to 10 minutes to force you into

selecting the most appropriate subset of information to present for this

situation and you will be heavily penalised if you take more than 15 minutes.

2. NOTE: If doing a video presentation (MP4 file, YouTube, Vimeo, Voice-overPowerPoint etc.) then try to halve the time for the online audience e.g. 6 – 10

minutes

3. This seminar will vary according to your study mode and so can be done

either/or:

1. live to class of peers – if studying on campus, then question time is

not part of the presentation time.

2. pre-recorded video presentation – if studying online mode then

technical production of the audio and video is considered in lieu of

question time.

3. If you are planning to do a research Masters, Professional Doctorate or

a PhD after this course, then one variation for the seminar may be to

do a Poster Presentation Seminar#. See details below the line.

4. The seminar should be accompanied by appropriate audio/visual tools such

as a set of presentation slides or examples of hardware/software/systems that

are necessary for the audience to understand and follow your presentation.

5. On campus students can ask your local supervisor for the date, time you will

be presenting.

6. Presenting a seminar also demonstrates that you have understood the project

work that has been carried out.
