3201H: Honors Holography 1
You are required
to give a presentation on a topic or artist somehow connected to the study
of Holography. Your presentation should be approximately 25-30 minutes long
with a 5-10 minute discussion of the topic following the presentation.
Aside from the presentation you are responsible for leading the discussion.
The TA will be present only to add to the discussion. On the weeks that
you do not present you should be an active participant in the discussion.
Participation is a significant portion of your grade.
1. Select a Report
topic, holographer or scientist from the topic list.
If you have interest in a topic not on the list you should
discuss the topic with the instructor or TA to get their
approval. You may use references from the videos shown in
class, lectures, slides, other classes, world wide web, and
holography books. If you are doing a presentation on an
artist limit the biographical information to 1-2 minutes;
focus on the ideas and concepts in the work - spend your time
discussing a small number of well-chosen images to illustrate
the ideas and concepts. If you are presenting a technique be sure
to show examples of how the technique is used in art or science.
2. Discuss the
topic with one of the instructors.
Discuss the appropriateness of the topic and sources of
information you have chosen. Although the web is a wonderful
resource the material you find there may not be correct.
3. Research the
You may fine the Fine Arts Library (in Mershon/Wexner Center),
Main Library and Physical Sciences Library useful. For fine
artists in the Fine Arts Library you should use the Art Index
to Periodicals to find articles. The Librarians are there to
assist you if you have any trouble.
4. Copy the material
you wish the class to receive.
A few days in advance give copies of the report material to
the TA who will distribute them to the class. This reading
material will help the class understand your topic and
facilitate class discussion.
5. Give your
Your presentation (report + questions + discussion) should last
about 30 min. Make your report as interesting, informative,
unique, and innovative as you can. You may wish to have something
in your hand or a transparency to remind you of the main subjects
about which you wish to talk. Speak slowly and clearly,
as you would to a group of creative and intelligent people who
know less about the subject than you do. The measure of your
success will not be how much you have said, but how much
your audience has understood, remembers, and finds
interesting. If you choose to present on stereograms,
hand-drawn holograms or optical illusions you must
demonstrate the technique in class.
6. Turn in a
one page Outline or Summary of your report
on the Monday before you present.

will be graded on the following:
-Content (breadth and depth)
-Outline or Summary
-Discussion of the ideas
