The first deliverables are meant for you to demonstrate that you have thought about your project topic in depth and are prepared to successfully complete the project. Worth 10% of your course grade.
Your 5-minute lightning talk to members of DHAT and Scholars Lab will include similar information to the proposal (see below) but in a different medium. (You don’t need to present the charter.) Each member of the team must speak for at least 1 minute. You can use PowerPoint, Prezi, or any other appropriate tool. You have limited time, though, so make your presentation seamless, concise, and accessible to a broad audience.
You will submit concise proposal of project, including statement of problem, motivation, related work, construction of research questions, hypotheses, and methodology. Also include a 1-page charter. We expect the proposal and charter to be around 3 pages total. Each group will post one blog entry, containing your proposal, as a PDF. Email the proposal in Word format to both Professor Sprenkle and Professor Youngman.
