Audience Best Practices


Try to keep the following in mind as you listen to the presenters’ pitches:
  • 1. What sort of development project does the speaker present?
  • 2. According to the presenter, what makes the project sustainable?


Keep the following in mind as you look at the presenters’s posters:
  • 1.How the poster respond to the rhetorical situation, i.e. illustrate an issues related to sustainability trough a local/national development project?
  • 2. How does the poster catch and sustain your attention via design choices: alignment, proximity, contrast, chunking, etc.?


Synthesize your looking and listening into a question that helps the presenter make connections and/or advances their project or your understanding:
  • 1.Key terms: I like that you drew our attention to ________ project. I wonder if you could say more about how Caradonna, Morton, or Clark’s terms describe the project you illustrate.
  • 2. Imagery/Design: You do a really nice job illustrating ___________ in___________ portion of your poster. What guided your design decisions?
  • 3. Scaling up: I love that you chose to illustrate _______ as an example of ________. What does the development project you chose say about the context in which it was created? Does the issue you chose challenge assumptions about the definition of sustainability?   

For Next Week….Remember M, W, R next week will be held remotely and T you go to the library for the video editing workshop. I’ll make a quick video explaining my expectations for next week and email you the attachment tonight.
