Audience Best Practices

  • 1. What sort of development project does the speaker present?
  • 2. According to the presenter, what makes the project sustainable?

Look

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.?

Respond

Synthesize your looking and listening into a question that helps the presenter make connections and/or advances their project or your understanding:

  • 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 defintion of sustainability?
