2. Proposal (Group - 20%)

Students need to prepare and present their proposal based on the guideline mentioned below:
What are the problems in learning and teaching?
The process of proposing a project (maybe more than one project) is more likely begin with
finding the problems. However, the problems that you are looking MUST occur in learning and
teaching environment. It can be either the teaching methods or learning styles or elsewhere in
this teaching and learning environment. You and the team members could identify the problems
by making reflections based on own experiences. What you looking are the REAL or
AUTHENTIC problems; that you find critical and need solutions.
Later in the process of identification, discuss in the group for the solutions and write a project
proposal (can be more than one).

What should be in and out, in your proposal?

The good (not perfect) project proposal would comprise (1) a problem background where the
idea of innovation had come. However, very long explanation on problem background may
contribute to a wide and complex problem. Choose to write a sharp and focus problem
background by applying simple sentence. Begins with a short brief problems background; the
proposal may continue with (2) a problem analysis (compulsory), which is very helpful to
define the problem and to clarify the idea for solutions. The proposal, of course, (3) should
clearly explain the solution (the best) to overcome the stated problem. Sometimes, an
illustration(s) is needed to further understand what the solution all about is. It is needed
especially for the solution that aims to produce tangible product. Successful plan always started
with a strong project development plan. Therefore, (4) a clear project development model
(method(s) to develop the project) is needed, in fact crucial. You might select one established
model or modified model based on your research. It is expected there will be an explanation on
(5) the material(s) and (6) the costing of the project if it is a tangible product. The high
quality of material may put away your money to the drain, worst case it is going to be rejected,
perhaps. Therefore, recycle material and free accessible material are the recommended materials.
The proposal should also include explanation on (7) beneficial of the project and (8)
originality aspect. A (9) commercial aspect of the product might impress the panel to accept
your project proposal. The last but not least, (10) a milestone chart should be appear in the
The rejection of project proposal may due to the difficulty level, time consume and theme off.

The preparation for the project proposal presentation day

The proposal stage is one of the vital stages in this subject. The project members (group) must
decide the best proposal among the ideas that has been produced. After the selection among the
group, project leader must decide who will be the group representative for the presentation. The
representative has to be a person who is able to convey the proposal properly. Other than
determination, the presenter also should capable to convince the panel(s) to accept the proposal.
Each group is given 10 minutes presentation either for 1 or 3 project proposals. Therefore, avoid
from waste time with long introduction of group members or what so ever.
