  • 2. How does the poster catch and sustain your attention via design choices: alignment, proximity, contrast, chunking, etc.?

Respond

Synthesize your looking and listening into a question that helps the presenter make connections and/or advances their project or your understanding:
  • 1.Key terms: I like that you drew our attention to ________ project. I wonder if you could say more about how Caradonna, Morton, or Clark’s terms describe the project you illustrate.
