Seminar and Seminar Participation

Approximately half way through their projects, students orally present the key content of their research and progress of their work.  The seminar should describe the scope and relevance of their thesis, the reviewed literature and its relevance to the thesis, the work carried out so far and the work remaining to be done.  The material should be prepared in a fashion that suits oral presentation and gives justice to the progress made so far.  It is essential that the seminar is not merely an oral presentation of the previously submitted project proposal but is focused on the progress in the project since the submission of the proposal.

Your seminar will be marked by your supervisor using the criteria on the seminar marksheet

You should consult with your supervisor to arrange your Project Progress Seminar at least one week prior to the scheduled assessment.  The supervisor will provide you with a Zoom link for the agreed time.  You will be able to see the complete seminar schedule via the Assessment tab in Blackboard. You must also participate in at least five other seminars and have your participation recorded on the seminar participation form. You do not need to book to attend the seminars that you participate in - only your own presentation timeslot. Completed seminar participation forms are to be emailled to with subject: Completed Seminar Participation Sheet.  Failure to participate in 5 seminars means your overall mark for the course is capped at 49% and your final grade is capped at 3.

Note - your seminar will be recorded for official moderation and review of results as required.
