I found the presentation assessment to be an incredibly interesting and informative way for this module to be assessed and learnt. Not only did i learn a lot more about my own given topic (Surveillance and Dataveillance) I learnt a lot more about the other weeks topic as I can gain another viewpoint from my classmates findings as well as my tutors findings.
My weeks topic, surveillance and dataveillance, was a particularly interesting subject i thought. It gave me a lot of insight into some of the other topics i have covered throughout my other modules. For example I managed to link it to the Standing Rock oil line issue recently as it was an example of how Dataveillance can be used against government bodies and policing systems. Standing rock was something that i covered within LM167 in the previous semester and making links like this, using my own research and ideas showed me what i can do when bringing together my knowledge from the whole year. I also felt that the presentation (in my case as our group was put together last minute) was a good test on how quickly we can put together an informative piece of work under strict time constraints and showed me its possible for myself to do it in future modules.
