Assessment 2: Audio-visual presentation Weight: 50% Length: 3 minutes Due date: Friday 7 October, 2016 PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS CAREFULLY The task Produce an audio-visual presentation that analyses a key development issue of your choice in the country of your choice. The issue must be one that enables an exploration of one or more of the themes explored in weeks 7 (Aid) 8 (development as freedom), 9 (participatory development), and/or 10 (alternatives to development). The AV will focus on non-economic aspects of, or approaches to development. For example, it could be about slum upgrading in Kenya, children’s rights in Thailand, human rights in Libya, the anti-dam movement in India, environmental sustainability in Brazil, indigenous land rights in Indonesia, etc. The presentation will do two key things: • Describe the issue – what is it, why does it matter? • Analyse the issue using Sen’s theory of development as freedom; critiques and/or advocacy of participatory development; or the work of a post-development theorist like Escobar. Research: You must draw on a minimum of 10 relevant, credible and substantial (meaning article or report-length) sources for this assessment. At least half of these will be academic (books, journal articles or book chapters). For this assessment, students are encouraged to have more critical, in-depth academic sources. You may also use substantial sources from other credible sources such as the World Bank or United Nations. You may use websites, if relevant and credible (for example to provide statistics), but these do not count towards the minimum required number of relevant, credible and substantial texts. The purpose of broad and deep reading is to increase your learning. Research should be referenced. Just as you have credits in a movie, you need to provide a list of your references, formatted in the same way as you would for an essay, at the end of your presentation. You can use any program you like (e.g. PowToon, Prezi, MS Powerpoint with voice-over). Learning objectives assessed: 1. Critically evaluate the ways in which colonialism, capitalism and development shape the relationship between the Global South, and Australia and other regions of the global North. (NOTE: The emphasis in this assessment is on development). 2. Identify and explain key development issues relating to Africa, Latin America and/or Asia 3. Critically reflect on the practical and ethical implications of engagement between the global North and the global South through markets and through the development industry, in relation to just and sustainable global development. 4. Communicate ideas clearly and coherently via digital video presentation. Assessment criteria • Quality of critical evaluation of development • Presentation (coherence, structure, spoken and written expression and grammar) • Digital quality • Research • Selection of texts appropriate to the topic • Selection of texts that are credible and academic • Breadth of research • Referencing • The use of other author’s ideas and evidence acknowledged appropriately (verbally or onscreen) • Proper reference list at the end of the presentation which includes every source used, and only sources directly referred to. • Consistent and complete formatting of sources Submission Submit presentations via the CloudDeakin assignment folder. The way you do this will depend on which program you use: • PowToon: Please submit a link, in a MS Word document, to your PowToon video. • Prezi: Please submit a link, in a MS Word document, to your Prezi. • Narrated powerpoint: Please submit the powerpoint file. • Movie: Please process the presentation on DeakinAir and then submit a link, in a MS Word document, to the movie on DeakinAir (as you would, for example, if you were submitting a YouTube link). All students have an account for DeakinAir, the university’s own equivalent of YouTube (even if you didn’t know it – you do have an account). Detailed instructions about how to do this are available at http://www.deakin.edu.au/students/clouddeakin/helpguides/video-and-audio/deakinair. Make sure you allow a few hours for figuring this out to be able to submit by the deadline. Feedback Each student will receive feedback, along with a grade. All assignments will be marked and returned via CloudDeakin with feedback and grade within 3 weeks of submission. Any fails are automatically double marked prior to return.
