LSBU EREID 2017 Task 11

LSBU EREID 2017 Task 11

Dear Students

Your W11 > W12 Homework assignment

Life skill

  • Read this more than once before you start, often during and at least once after you think you are finished.
  • Read with highlighter in hand and highlight the important issues that you need to address
  • Check off the highlighted items against your work until you have done it all
  • Add deadlines to your electronic diaries with advance warnings and alarm calls on days of submission and attendance and no not press snooze or you will snooze through life.

x pages with:

  • Learning from your previous brief and your building’s uses.
  • Learning from your previous site and surrounds investigation, building and adjacent building survey/analysis.
  • Learning from your previous elemental performance task
  • Update them if you find they are not detailed enough.
  • Choose a word, phrase, topic or issue relevant to your project that needs to be explained and explain it.
  • Explore the internet for definitions and present a summary in a PowerPoint slide, A4 or A3 page.
  • See also GBE Jargon Buster (I have added to GBE website Shop see link above its free for a week)
  • This includes 9000 Jargon Busters some of which may apply to your projects
  • Include illustrations of the Jargon addressed
  • Consider one illustration per issue/paragraph one issue/paragraph per illustration
  • You can substitute: icons, schedule, picture, cartoon, diagram, chart, etc. for illustrations.
  • Make your slide or page interesting to look at and consider them as part of the work hung on the wall with your scheme
  • Use bullet points (summery of the issue) not long sentences with bullets at the beginning
  • Front load your bullets with the information that’s important
  • Number your bullets
  • This becomes a checklist for presenting your scheme on crits and allows others to understand your scheme in your absence

What not to do:

  • Do read the Academic Comments File (in the dropbox folder) and see what others did badly and do not do the same.

For example:

  • Make sure you are answering the requirements of the homework
  • Find an appropriate word, phrase

Remember you are not ‘designing’ yet,

  • Remember you are only just developing the requirements of the building elements
  • Not ‘designing’ yet, you may be prematurely thinking about methods of construction and materials (try to resist)
  • The information you create now will help you choose the right methods of construction and the right materials in subsequent home works.

Handing it in

  • hand in at the next lecture, on 1 or many sheets of A4 portrait or A3 landscape paper depending on how much you want to say;
  • If you use multiple A4 or A3 bind, staple or footnote each so they can be found and read together
  • File in dropbox opening folder, at latest midnight the day before lecture W5.
  • If you have updated previous homeworks add them to the same dropbox but add a number (starting with 2) for me to consider and improve your score if applicable.

The deadline:

  • Will be midnight the day before the next lecture.
  • Life skill: add it to your electronic diaries with advance warnings and early morning wake up calls, turn off snooze function and get up.
  • But the files that arrive sooner will make me happier as a client.
  • I will collect the last files at 04:00 am on the day of the lecture.
  • If you miss the 12:59/00:00 deadline do the work anyway and do it as soon as possible, it will be taken into account in the final score minus points for lateness.

The file naming convention:

  • So that you do not overwrite each other’s work when you drop files into dropbox
  • “Task 11 your name EBB7525 EREID 2017.doc” or .docx” or .pdf”
  • depending upon the version and software you use.
  • Do not add extra hyphens or brackets or gaps to the file name, do not close gaps that I put there.

You can do it with colour but I will be printing in black and white (only if I need to).

Replacing previous homework files with a better one:

  • e.g. “W2 your name EBB7525 ERIED 2017 2.doc” or .docx” or .pdf”

DropBox (how dropbox works let column and scroll down)

  • I have opened and added your email addresses to a dropbox and invited you to visit to collect files and deliver files there too.
  • I added subfolders which you will be able to see and I will collect your file and move it to the subfolder as I mark it.
  • Let me know if you still have not had an invite to dropbox.

Scoring: In the weeks context marking is: (9 points)

  • Was the assignment carried out?
  • Was it on time?
  • Was it delivered by dropbox?
  • Was it delivered on paper at the lecture?
  • Did the file name adopt the convention?
  • Did it follow the homework brief?
  • Did you choose a good jargon phrase, acronym or word and explain it well? Say something not nothing
  • Did you number items to allow cross referencing? To Week 3, 4, 5,…. Etc. To the end

Scoping of resubmitted work

  • Did you upgrade your previous homework(s) in response to this one?
  • If the previous score was low then they may be upgraded
