  • Final Project Prospectus assignment:
    • Abstract

    • "Environmental scan"
    • Work plan
      • Consider staged or modular work plans, starting with what you or a small group of you could individually do that could contribute to your dissertation(s).
    • Budget
      • Cf., RoSE Proposal Budget
        • Funding request + "cost share"
        • Direct costs + indirect costs
        • GSR's vs. RA's
        • Benefits
        • Hours of work  & kinds of work
    • Method of project evaluation


  • Proposal presentations in our final class:
    • Aim for 6 minute "lightning" presentations, followed by 4 minutes of discussion with class (total of about 10 minutes for each proposal)
    • To facilitate presenting, prepare a page in the Project Prospectuses folder on the Student Work site for the course that includes an abstract and link to your presentation (or you can you the page to hold your presentation in toto).  Also consider posting about your prospectus on your blog.
      • Upload or link in advance to any necessary presentation files (e.g., Powerpoints), so that Alan can preload them before class to speed things up.
      • You can also use your own computer to present, so long as you have an adapter for the VGA cable.
      • Let Alan know if you have special hardware or software needs for the presentation (e.g., sound).
