@HeatherSutton I recently participated in the WDO ISSNL Design in Space Challenge whose main goal is to build an Orbital University. The project focused on the following three objectives;
How can space-based research address UN Sustainable Development Goals?
How can we build an orbital university?
How can ISS become a business incubator?
The project had 70 participants, where we were divided into 5 groups, with each group holding their own in-depth discussions as to what the project should entail. My group tacked the second objective.
We had two weeks to do our group discussions, after which we shared our ideas to a group of panelists in charge of the project.
For online collaboration we used Miro and thereafter presented our findings using slides. There was no restrictions on formatting or the length of our submissions. In fact, creativity came as an added advantage. The only limitation was the duration of doing our presentations, which I think was roughly 15 minutes.
But being a content writer that I am, I think there is a standard format which should be used i.e. (Times New Roman "12, doubled spaced). As for presentations, we only take the main points.
If we are to present in book form, then I think that this report should be as detailed as possible, and probably provide 3 timelines (Alpha, Beta and Gamma) to implement the project and what each entails. Our submissions should reflect the final product and it is how well we present our research that will determine if the project will qualify for phase 2.
