CP Presentation

Your Presentation is basicaly a 8-10 minute preliminary report
on your Semester Research Project.

It is a preliminary report of your Term Paper,
to a different audience (your classmates), and with a different style (informal)

Think of your presentation as a TED talk for your classmates,
if you are familiar with TED talks,
without having to pay the $3,500-$15,000 fee to give your talk at a TED conference.

(If you are not familiar with TED talks, you should check on them. Have a look at some TED Talks, TED Psychology Talk Index. TED Talks Topics.)

Face-toFace (f2f) Presentations will be in-class, and may include any or none of the following listed below . . .

Joel Salatin, at the 3rd Annual Community Wellness Day April 28th 2012 at UMD

(Remember Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm from the videos and the text?)

On-line Presentations should include one (or more) of the following . . .

  • Video Presentation

    • Video projects should be 10-12 minutes long
      (see detailed information in oral presentations)

  • Web Based Presentation

    • Web projects should have between 10-20 interactive pages

    (YouTube -- Wikipedia)

    other presentation resources

  • PowerPoint presentation

    • As with any presentation, it is good to have a beginning, middle, and an end. Usually the beginning contains what in writing they call a "thesis statement."

    • PowerPoint projects for this course should be well-crafted and professional, and about 25-30 slides in length, with narration or narrative text as part of the program itself (and not simply presented, for e.g., as presenter's notes in a powerpoint presentation).

      • the numbers 25-30 slides are just guidelines. You may have more slides if you like.


  • Tools

    • The use of Prezi is Discouraged
