Today we began the final 60 credit module of the M.Des. We did the usual rules, regulations and assessment criteria followed by speed networking in the studio – one minute to explain your project to a stranger. As it was basically an elevator pitch we finessed them in the elevators.
We developed ‘project profiles’ from the pitches – as a prototype for an NHS Scotland event which I am facilitating in Clydebank, Glasgow on June the 14th – and am looking for a graphic designer, a facilitator and a photographer.
The afternoon was spent thinking about the reference that could be written in August 2012 – using real references for five graduates as examples.
We brainstormed roles that are needed between now and August and asked for volunteers (you can put these in your references and also put the role and your name in the comment box below)
