Persona/POV due Sunday; Proposal Check-in

Jeff Kupperman's picture

Two items for UM students:

1. Your Persona and POV Statement are due by the end of the day this coming Sunday. The aim in creating both of these is to consider the question, “Whose problem is this?”

In creating a persona, you will imagine a person whose needs are at the center of the issue you have identified in your media artifact, and you will give this person a name, age, background, and goals. Then as you move forward, you’ll be crafting your proposal to first and foremost meet this person’s needs. The POV statement is a concise formulation of those needs, framing the problem in terms of your persona's goals.

See this doc for detailed instructions.

2. If you haven’t already done so, sign up for your proposal check-in ASAP. The FINAL DAY available for sign up is  Friday, OCT. 26.  

UPDATE: We have a TENTATIVE hearing date of Wednesday, Dec. 12 in the morning. We will let you know as soon as it is confirmed.
