Define Project Concepts


Design Notebooks

Let’s take a few minutes to review your Design Notebooks.

Team Pages

Gather with your team & let’s take a few minutes to set up our team pages.

Once you’ve created your team page, add sections (using Heading 2’s) for the following:

  • Partner
  • Team
  • Project Concept


Identify your partner organization and include links to their website, contacts and any other partner resources.

Here are the partners:


Identify your team name, and list your team members and their roles.

Project Concept

What are the key elements of a solid project concept?

Project Concept Rubric

  • What problem(s) are you solving and what existing alternatives address it/them?
  • Who is your target audience? This could be your partners constituencies, but will also likely include your partner’s employees. Consider both.
  • What’s your solution?
  • Finally, how is your solution unique relative to other existing solutions?

Concept Presentations

What makes a good presentation?



Design Notebook (Individually)

  • Create a new slide in your Design Notebooks and title it with your team’s name
  • Include a link to your team’s page on the class blog
  • Make sure your team’s Project Concept Document is linked to your team page on the blog
  • List all the members of your team and what their role will be on your team
  • Write a brief paragraph describing your specific role in more detail

Project Concept Presentations (Team)

  • Your team’s Producer will create a new Google Slide document and title it with the name your team has chosen for your project
  • Working together as a team, using the project concept rubric above, create a slide for each element of your project concept
  • Once complete, post a link to the project concept Google Slide document to your team page on the class blog – make sure you set the sharing permissions on the document so “anyone with the link can view” it
  • Next week your team will present your project concept in class
  • Each team member will present at least one slide

*Submit the link to your Design Notebook to Canvas before we meet again next week
