Note: You must complete Assessments 1 and 2 before beginning this assessment. As you create your presentation, consider the feedback you received from your instructor on your Assessments 1 and 2. You may use information from your Assessments 1 and 2 for your presentation. However, be sure to edit the information to fit the requirements of this assessment, and to create a logical flow of ideas for your presentation.
Create and record a slide presentation with accompanying spoken narration, which comprises a comprehensive synthesis of your research and recommendations concerning ethical and cultural issues described in a case study, including a research-based plan to resolve the case.
While examining your previous assessments and making decisions about the essential information that will be presented, it is recommended that you begin by creating an outline and comparing it to the Comprehensive Case Presentation Scoring Guide to ensure you have specifically taken into account and addressed all of the grading criteria in detail.
Use the PowerPoint Template [PPTX] to complete this assessment.
You may use PowerPoint to create this slideshow, or if you wish, you may use Prezi or some other option. However, PowerPoint is best supported by the resources provided. You are responsible for making your presentation work.
For each assessment you have written in the course thus far, create 810 slides that provide a high-level explanation or summary. In other words, you should create a minimum of 16 slides, plus a title slide, introduction slide, conclusion slide, and references slide. Use a clear and concise structure.
Title slide: On the first slide, enter:
A brief title of the presentation.
Course number and title.
FlexPath instructor’s name.
Introduction slides: Provide an introduction to your presentation that includes a brief overview of the case. Describe what you will be discussing in your presentation.
Content slides: Provide a high-level overview of the salient points from Assessments 1 and 2. While you may use some of your previous work, such as the research studies, theories, and plans, be sure to revise your work so you are addressing the criteria for this assessment. You will likely need to revise your previous work so it flows for your presentation and meets the specific criteria for the presentation.
Also include a slide that discusses how this project has influenced your thinking about your own professional behaviors.
Conclusion slides: Briefly summarize your presentation. Provide a concise summary about the topics addressed.
Reference slides: List all references cited in your presentation.
All slides should include detailed presenter notes that include what you will say for each slide. Some slides may need to include more extensive notes than others, depending on what you are presenting for that slide. Be sure to consider the distinguished level of each criterion to guide you in the amount of detail you will need in the notes section of the slides to meet the requirements for each component of the presentation. Include fully developed paragraphs in the notes area of your slides (the Notes area is just underneath each slide). Most slides will require multiple paragraphs for sufficient detail to meet proficient and distinguished level scoring of criteria.
Be sure to include the kind of detail you would present to an audience if you were presenting live to a group. You may use information directly from your previous assessments when writing presenter notes. However, entries should be edited so they are written as if you are speaking to a group of professionals, paraprofessionals, or a potential employer, for example. You can utilize the presenter notes when recording the audio portion of the presentation.
Your presentation should include a comprehensive audio voice-over that presents essential information for each slide. Elements of good spoken delivery include:
Appropriate volume and clear pronunciation.
Avoidance of audible fidgeting and distracting interjections.
A variety of intonation and pacing and appropriate use of pauses.
Important: Before you record your presentation, it is recommended you allow ample time to practice your presentation until you are comfortable with these elements.
Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in these activities, please contact [email protected] to request accommodations.
