Week 14: Crunch Time

This week is the final stretch to the finish your Creative Concept before your presentations next week. You’ll have some class time work with your partner to develop your final presentation and handout. I’ll also check in with each team on their progress. Make sure to review the requirements for Assignment 4C: Final Pitch Presentation.

Don’t forget you also have one final individual assignment to reflect on the personal and professional vision you created at the beginning of the semester. The details are in Assignment 5.

This week will go fast, but don’t stress. Finish strong!
