Design Portfolios: Documentation of students' work during the 9th GSF in 2013


Browse. Learn. Ideate. 

Here you can re-energize with the brainpower of the 9th GSF:

See what your peers identified as critical problems and potential solutions in the world of Engineering Education.
Build off of their ideas or incorporate some of their ideas into your Action Plan to make a stronger case.
Pursue a new Action Plan inspired by your peers or join another team. 

Quick note about this table:

Remember, some 3-Ideas directly became a Final Presentation. Some 3-Ideas merged with others and evolved into a different Final Presentation. If you'd like some help contacting the persons involved with the original idea, email us and we'll help you get in contact.  

Your ideas are obviously much more complicated than one simple category. Use these to find common ground and build off each other's ideas. Maybe someone's idea fills your gap and launches more of your ideas!

Give credit where credit is due. Once you have identified who you might want to work with or learn more from, contact them!

The following are guidelines to help you understand how Milestones will help you develop your Action Plan into the best Implementation. Milestones are suggested, not required, but are a good way to keep on track and know that you are competitive in the Implementation Competition. 


Keep checking back as more information and details of the Milestones will be added periodically.
More resources will also be added throughout the competition.

October 24th, Milestone 1: Team Group Page and Help Needed

Understand the Implementation Competition. Read through the Implementation Competition Guide and the resources given to you and become familiar with:

  • Milestones up until the Final Competition date, March 24, 2014
  • Locating material from the 9th GSF instructional speakers
  • Action Plans from other teams: What is useful to you? What interests you?
  • How to contact your peers
  • Help Wanted/Help Offered Page
  • The role of mentors


Form your teams. After browsing all the other teams’ work and noting their goods and bads, decide what Action Plan you would like to work on and what team you would like to put together. Contact your peers to form your team using our contact page


Make it official. Once you have a team and action plan, bring yourselves online! Make a team page in the SPEED portal and begin filling out your Help Needed/Help Offered to other teams.

Helpful instructions for this step are in the Implementation Competition Guide.

November 24th, Milestone 2: Background Research, Timeline, Budget, and Key Stakeholders

The idea here is to learn tools that will help you effectively organize, communicate, and track progress within your team. Your Group Page on the SPEED Website will serve to document your progress and submit your Milestones for your mentors and judges to keep track of. In addition, you’ll need your own tools to help your team get organized and communicate effectively.


Background research

Work smart, not hard.

Find out what’s been done before so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

What are some places that have experienced the problem you are trying to solve? What were the repercussions of this problem? How did it affect the people involved? Use this as incentive to show why your Action Plan is imperative.

What are some successful programs that have accomplished what you are trying to do? What were their successes and what were their failures?

A beginning point for this is the SPEED Resources page.



Explore tools that will help you communicate a lot of information within your group in an effective and creative manner. S

Some good ones to get you started are:

  • Identifying your Key risks
    • What are the main things that if not worked out, will lead to Action Plan failure? What are the key risks that should be solved now to avoid catastrophe later?
    • Chart of Interdependent tasks
      • Once you make a list of to-do’s, you will probably divide tasks amongst your group members. Which of these tasks depend on the other tasks to get done? For more information and examples from a Product Design perspective, click here.
    • Gantt charts
      • Organization chart that lets you view the tasks that will be worked on in parallel by different persons.

December 24th, Milestone 3: Meetings with Stakeholders


Begin to take action!

Learn to work with your stakeholders.

Develop your professional skills and meet with a stakeholder that is important to have on board in order for your Action Plan’s success. What new things did you learn from them? What was there initial reaction? What was their final reaction? How could you have presented all this information better? Are there other contacts this person(s) can refer you to? Can they send an introduction email to get you started? Is there an event you can attend (monthly advisory board meeting, for instance) where you can further pitch your idea to more stakeholders at once? What can their experience say about your timeline and budget? Is it feasible? Do they have ideas of someone that can help you that you might not have thought about yet? Make sure one of your teammates at the meeting has the responsibility of taking notes of the meeting.


Incorporate all this feedback and all the lessons learned into an updated Action Plan with a more refined timeline and budget.

January 24th, Milestone 4: Provide User-Testing


In order for an Action Plan to work, the intended audience must be engaged. Identify who your Action Plan is going to benefit and design ways to involve their thoughts into your implementation.

In product design, we begin with identifying your market, consumer, and user. Once you have a clear vision for who these three are, you can draft ideas to do user testing and receive feedback from your intended audience.

Useful tools here are surveys, meetings with professionals, interviews with users, observation exercises, etc.

February 24th, Milestone 5: Reflect, Analyze, Re-strategize.

Based on your first courses of action, take a moment to reflect on what you have accomplished. Identify what was successful, and what still needs to happen. Did your plan to raise funds work properly? Are you sticking to your timeline? How much work is left to accomplish your Action Plan? How will you put a structure in place to allow others to continue your work when you leave?

The point of these documents is for your judges to understand your evolution and constant progress. If you would like to mark up these  

They will be looking for: 

  • Design iteration. Team used design principles to inspire discussion and worked through the process to bring successful, creative Action Plans to Implementation.
  • Edits in your proposals. Team used their resources to work smart, not hard. Team incorporated feedback and worked with others to meet a need, not a dream.
