Day 2 Sessions
You should have already read the Preparing for a Createathon guide and the Createathon: Day One guide. We provide a Day 2 Schedule example in the Createathon: Day Two file, so that you can see the format of the second day. We will go on in the next sections to describe the facilitator tasks and team activities so that you know the rationale behind our thinking. This example is based on an online delivery model and you can adapt it to your needs.
Createathon: Day Two - a downloadable pdf file, where you'll find the details from all sections on this page.
Finalising PechaKucha Presentations and Action Card
Activity 1 - Finalise PechaKucha presentations and Action Card recommendations (1 hour and 45 mins)
This is an opportunity for student teams to work independently, without help from entrepreneurs. They will finalise their PechaKucha (see Createathon Day One guide) that will present back:
- what they have learned about the business
- what success would look like for their enterprise and
- outline their proposed solutions for the Createathon challenge
They will also complete an Action Card, where their recommendations and proposed solutions can be outlined in more detail.
Discussion of Future and Action Card recommendations
Action 2 - Discussion of Future and Action Card recommendations
Creative enterprises join the student teams in their breakout rooms and students rehearse their presentations. While doing that, they also:
- Sense check for clarity
- Appropriateness of recommendations being proposed
- That their recommendations are suitable to be shared in the main fora
It is important at this stage for the students to check with the creative entrepreneurs that they have their permission to share the presentation, checking that not been included is confidential/or there is anything in their recommendations that the entrepreneur does not want them to share with the wider event audience.
Any final amendments to the Pecha Kucha can be made collaboratively.
Presentation of the Pecha Kuchas
Action 3 - Presentation of the Pecha Kutchas
Each team delivers their presentation on the template we have provided. That template enforces the 20x20 format, so each presentation should last for 6 minutes and 40 seconds exactly! Again, you need to keep to a tight schedule to keep everyone engaged, so allow a couple of questions from the audience, before giving the chance for the entrepreneur to give their feedback.
Notes on presenting
In a virtual environment, students should have selected who will share the presentation and they are in control of running their own digital presentations.
In a physical environment you will have to assess how the Pecha Kucha presentations can be shared most effectively in line with any IT security issues/hardware availability. We suggest uploading them to some form of shared cloud drive that the facilitators set up so that confidentiality can be respected.
- The businesses should be provided with a copy of their Pecha Kucha and Miro Board.
- The students could also be allowed to save their Pecha Kucha and download their Miro Board as a record of achievement.
These outputs can be used as evidence of the student’s entrepreneurial learning outcomes, demonstrating they have learnt new skills such as working in an interdisciplinary team, are practiced in customer-led design approaches, have gained creative problem-solving skills and have the ability to work under pressure within tight timescales. Please make sure the businesses are fine with the information shared in these pieces of student work.
Wrap up the event and thank (15 mins)
Facilitators summarise key learning points from Day Two and answer any final questions from students and enterprises. The session is closed with expressions of thanks and appreciation for everyone’s hard work and participation.
A Certificate of Attendance and Completion can be emailed to students in exchange for completion of an event evaluation form. Available for download Certificate of Attendance and Completion in a pdf format and Microsoft Word format.
