PowerPoint Presentations: PowerPoint projects are designed to allow you to showcase your grasp of factual knowledge, to demonstrate your ability to distill the essential concepts of a topic, and to go further by drawing conclusions and inferences about these topics. When you are finished with the course you will have a small arsenal of lectures at your disposal. Projects should be brief, to the point but complete.
Tips for a good PowerPoint presentation: There is an example/tutorial in how to create an effective PowerPoint presentation that can be found under the Course Documents tab in BB. This will be particularly useful to students who have not had experience with these presentations in the past, but may also help others refine their skills. You will be graded not only on the content but also the visual appeal and general effectiveness of your presentation in conveying the content.
Slides should have no more than 4-6 lines of text per slide, and 1-3 ideas per slide max. Text should be in bullet format, not paragraph/prose format. Information should be conveyed in a concise but comprehensible manner. Do not write too much, as this creates a crowded slide which is visually overwhelming. Your meaning will get lost in the slide and your audience will lose interest. Do not write too little as this makes it difficult to understand your intended meaning. You may receive a lower grade because it will not be clear that you understood the concepts. Use photos and diagrams thoughtfully to supplement and advance your presentations, not just as meaningless filler.
Each presentation should have a title slide, an objectives slide and one or more reference slides. The title slide should contain the title of your presentation, your full name, and the date. The objectives slide should outline the main bullet points that your presentation will cover. These should be analogous to lessons you expect your intended target audience to learn from your presentations. Your target audience has a basic disaster management background equivalent to your own. Students will complete PowerPoint Presentations of 15-20 slides:
