Assignment 3: The Presentation
Objective: Develop an audio-narrated PowerPoint presentation based on the research you have conducted about your chosen medical condition or disease
Assignment Instructions: Using the course project steps completed to date, you will develop your presentation based on the work you submitted for Assignments 1 and 2 as well as the feedback you were given.
To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following: Read these directions carefully. Review the presentation grading rubric below. The grading rubric is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignment. Message me with any questions!
Presentation requirements: Your presentation will be submitted as an audio-narrated PowerPoint, narrated by you, the student. You cannot use “text-to-speech” programs or technology that do the narration for you unless noted as an approved accommodation in a current DSA letter you have furnished to me. For instructions on how to create audio narration in PowerPoint, see the following link: Record a Slide Show With Narration. Audio narration is a requirement! There must be a visual element (e.g., photos, videos, graphs, figures). Your presentation must contain approximately 10-15 slides (excluding references) and run approximately 5-10 minutes. Please note that less than 10% of your presentation should contain direct quotes. Proper use and pronunciation of scientific terminology are required. For help with pronunciation, see this link: Meriam-Webster Medical Dictionary Be sure to properly cite your work, both internal to the presentation as well as within the reference slide (this includes photos, graphs, figures, videos, etc.). All references listed on the reference slide should be cited internally within the presentation, and vice versa. You will submit this presentation to your classmates to review and discuss as a part of the Week Eight Forum.
The required elements: Your presentation should contain the following elements in the order listed below.
In addition, I expect that any feedback provided to you from Assignment 1: Annotated Bibliography and Assignment 2: The Outline be incorporated into this assignment. Please go back and review those comments. I. Introduction Slide(s) this section must contain the following:A. Student IntroductionB. Topic selection and reason for selectingC.
