Week 5 Discussion
In this week’s Discussion, you will have the opportunity to develop and share with a small group of your colleagues a presentation summarizing your Capstone Paper. This task facilitates your learning about how to disseminate information in presentation form. The ability to do this well is important for gaining the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to present your research and ideas to colleagues. In addition, learning how to give and receive feedback is important. Receiving peer feedback helps you learn how to strengthen your writing and presentation skills by taking into account the responses of actual and anticipated readers. Giving peer feedback helps you refine your critical-thinking skills and your communication skills.
Post by Day 3, a 7- to 8-slide PowerPoint-style presentation with audio that summarizes each of the four sections of your Capstone Paper. Use the PowerPoint record feature within the PowerPoint program to narrate your slides.
The audio should be a recording of you presenting the PowerPoint as if you were standing in front of an audience. Refer to your sources using in-text citations. Be sure to include the following in your slideshow presentation:
One slide with title information
One to two slides describing the following:
Your chosen professional role
Why you chose this particular profession
The knowledge, skills, and characteristics one would need be successful in your chosen profession
One slide outlining how van der Heijden’s (2002) three predictor variables might inform your actions in developing expertise in your chosen profession
One slide outlining the main theories used in your chosen profession
One slide outlining the main research areas used in your chosen profession
One slide outlining the main research methods used in your chosen profession
One slide outlining how your chosen professional role can contribute to positive social change
Note: Post the presentation by attaching it to your Discussion post.
Respond by Day 5 to each of your colleagues in your small group by asking clarifying questions and offering additional feedback about his or her presentation.
Note: This Discussion post will not use Post First. Students may view other presentations prior to posting.
