Overview of the Project
1. Begin by reviewing your readings to select a particular philosophy/philosopher of leisure that appeals to you. This is a research component wherein you must synthesize the ideas of this philosophy with any one of the following topics
• Health and wellness
• Meditation and contemplation
• Stress and relaxation 2, You must demonstrate a logical argument about how these philosophies relate to your selected topic in our modern lifestyles. For example:
• How does a philosopher like Josef Pieper and his Ideas on leisure and happiness relate to the topic of stress and relaxation in our daily life? 3. The deliverable for this stage will be a basic outline of the project in which you will
• identify your chosen philosophy/philosopher and the topic question (stated as in 2. above) you wish to explore.
• You must submit this first part for approval by your professor.
1. Write a brief (200-300 word) rationale for your choice and the main argument(s) you will make.
2. List at least 3 of the 6 additional sources you will use to support your argument(s).
3. The completed outline with'these additional components will be submitted to your professor.
4. Part 2 work will only be graded In the final submission (Part 3), but submission is mandatory and subject to the usual lateness penalties (appliedtothe final submission). It is important that you work on each stage as described, as it will keep you on track, and prowdevatuable feedback and guidance from the professor.
As this is a project (and not a written essay) In which the ideas and arguments you are developing need to be integrated into a visual presentation, Part 3 will involve you seeking out online visual and/or aural examples to support and illustrate the key points/arguments you have made and ate continuing to develop from Part 2. Examples can include any print media you want to scan or find online and/or your own artwork or photography created for this specific purpose. o Ensure any media materials you incorporate, even if your own creation, are properly credited below or next to the image or clip. o In the case of these media images or clips, you do not have to cite them in your reference list - lust credit them in the presentation itself.
• In this final part both components will be combined Into a single media rich presentation. - The presentation may be created in a variety of media, such as PowerPoint. Sway, or Preis, but the following characteristics must be Included o Information kb-as. and arguments you developed f rom the research and reading you did in Part 2. O information presented in a visual (images, photos, illustration. video) and aural (sound clips, music, narration) manner that sucroons and mkt/dunk-nate ideas (Part 2). o Apart from an opening title slide/page and a closing References slide/page, the body of the presentation has no preset length or structure. It need be as long as it needs to present your arguments completely and effectively.
While you are encouraged to be creative, you should avoid being overly symbolic or obtuse There must be a logic and flow to your presentation, an organization Mal effectively engages and persuades and teaches the reader something they may not have previously known Note that most of thegradeis associated with the strength of your research and arguments, and your ability to communicate them. not your artistic vision o Save your work In such a manner that will allow your professor to review your project without specialized software. PowerPoints should be saved as ppt files; Prezi, Sway. or other web/cloud-based applications may require saving to the cloud. in which case submission will be in the form of a Word document that Includes the presentation title, your name, and a clearly labelled URUllnk to the material. o It Is the Students responsibilrty to ensure they know how to use the software and save the content.
