Event Report Guidelines
Here, again, are the guidelines for event reports:
a. Describe the event in general terms: what was its purpose, what was its intended audience, what was its format?
b. How did the event address themes from this course? What exactly was it trying to resist, or combat, or eradicate? (Note: I don’t want a one word answer here. I want as precise a description as you can give of the point of the event.)
c. What questions did the event address?
d. What concepts or ideas were central to the event? What do you think they meant?
e. What main points came up in the discussion afterward – either at the event or informally? (Note: there should always be some discussion component to any event you use for this course. If there is not a formal discussion period, make an opportunity to talk about the event with someone whose opinion you value.)
f. What surprised you about this event? In particular, are there ways it seemed to fall short of its purpose, or of what it ideally could have accomplished?
g. What new ideas did you have because of this event?
