Students then consolidate their analysis into a short presentation through group-work, in a 'dragons den style' format. Introduction to ACCESS FM Preparatory Task Consolidation Task Presentation Peer assessment (vote) If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in this or other Product Design series/SOW (where the full iterative design process is covered).
