These travelogues have been made in collaboration with many organizations, fellow architects, mentors, professors and students we met during the Indo-French, Indo-Korea and Indo-Bangla-French Workshops. These collaborations are a wonderful means of not only knowledge exchange but also learning from different cultures and people around the world.

About

If you are almost done with your design semester, with final jury fear setting in then this is just the right course for you! 

The major problem noticed among Architecture Students is the sheet composition for final presentation. With cluttered storyboarding and no continuity, the design process does not reflect in the presentation boards, leaving you with no confidence before the final jury!

This online course will teach you how one can easily get clarity of thought and work with easy methods to come up with the final presentation ideas, both visual and verbal. 

The crash course is divided into just three sessions. The first session will talk about the importance of understanding the design process and having clarity of thought. With using a different approach towards this process, we will help you break down your design process into important keywords which will help you with the presentation. 

The second session will teach you about storyboarding to come up with different presentation board templates. It will also talk about the type of drawings and the quality of drawings for a good presentation.  

The third session will teach you about verbal presentation and how one can take hints from the design process to weave a good story or a narration. 

Learnings

 

  • Understanding the importance of ‘clarity of thought’ to come up with good presentation skills and how it lies within the design process itself.
  • Learn methods like storyboarding to come up with good presentation boards.
  • Decode different kinds of presentation boards/templates to narrate a design process.
  • Learn last-minute hacks which can be used for good presentation sheets.

These courses are live courses, conducted through an application called Zoom, which allows the tutor and participants to interact, engage via polls, Q and A sessions, IPad sessions, screen sharing and much more.

What is the difference between 11 AM IST/05:30 AM GMT and 07 PM IST/01:30 PM GMT sessions?

The two slots are kept keeping in mind the different time zones. The dates and timings mentioned are subjective to Indian Standard Time. The dates may change due to the differing time zones. Please check the dates and timings relative to your time zone.

(For eg; 11 AM in India- 12:30 AM in New York, 07 PM in India – 09:30 AM in New York)

Do I need a good internet connection to attend the course?

You do need a decent connection to stay online. However, most of the session is conducted using powerpoint presentations and I Pad sessions which requires only a fairly decent connection.

Can I switch from one session to the other?

Yes, you can switch before the sessions go live. However, once a subjective timing is attended by a participant, the slot cannot be changed after that.

Can I cancel my purchase after buying the course?

You cannot cancel the purchase, however, you can transfer the course to a friend/colleague.

Can I transfer the course to a friend if I don’t want to continue with the course?

What if I buy courses for two from one account?

When does the session go live and when do I log in?

We strongly recommend joining the session 15 mins before the given timings to avail perks like interaction with the tutor, listening to some awkward jokes and watching our comic-making process.

I cannot find my zoom link for logging in to the course.

Upon registration, you receive a confirmation mail from Zoom itself which contains the joining link which is unique to each participant. These emails usually go to your updates tab of the inbox section.

I did not receive any emails regarding further registration?

Sometimes patience is the key and sometimes systems go berserk. If it’s the first case, be patient and search your updates tab/spam folder for emails under ‘ZOOM’. If it’s the second, drop us a query at leewardistswebinars@gmail.com
