You will each give your oral presentation / present your professional artefact. Each presentation is 30mins (max) in total (20mins oral plus 10mins for artefact) with approx 5mins for questions, comments, invited from the audience afterwards.
The one-to-one discussions that follow after all presentations are with Adesola and Helen and are a chance for us to raise any questions looking across your critical review, oral presentation and professional artefact as your three modes of dissemination of your research and for you to respond.

Video Booth:
As a way of creating a legacy of your MAPP journeys we would like each of you to come prepared to record a short (max 5mins) video in which you share a bite-size chunk of your research; stating the title of your research project, outlining your methodologies, identifying any emerging themes, and noting any change or impact the research has had on your professional practice.  This is basically the outline of your oral presentation which you are all working on anyway.  We simply thought it would be great to have your research documented in this way.  We will record these in the sound studio (directly above the Grove Dance Theatre where you will be presenting) in the time slots after your presentations allocated for questions/discussions with us.  It would also be nice if you would like to offer any tips or advice for future MAPP students!

Please confirm attendance via email to Adesola Akinleye / Helen Kindred

If you are travelling by car, please let me know ASAP as parking on campus is limited, I will do my best to book spaces for those that need them.  Any queries about the space, technical facilities etc please do email


  1. Hi Helen, although i cant be there in person, I would love to be there via skype as before. Thanks. Tara

  2. My parents are driving me, though it looks like it may be a long day for them, is there a good place they can visit or go to in between my presentation and finishing? Do others bring family etc to watch?
