We came together as a group and brainstormed the different types of topic that we could use to present to the class. We all came up with different types of topic but we all agreed to present the topic about origami as we saw that this was the best fit for adult learners like ourselves. It was plain and simple and also fun.

2. The Design Stage – is a stage that planning and design for the presentation are involved. We all decided on what our plan for the presentation would be. What we needed to include in our presentation and all the tools that were necessary for our presentation. We came up with instructions on how to fold a simple origami Easter box.
