Practice and Record Your Presentation

  • After preparing your slides and speaker notes, practice delivering your presentation. Do not simply read your PowerPoint slides. Instead, present your slides as if you had an actual group of new hires in the room with you. How would you present the information to them in a memorable way? Remember the more interactive you can make your presentation, the more engaged your audience will be. You can pause or edit Kaltura audios; however, editing capability is limited. Practice will help you sound professional.
  • Record your presentation using Kaltura media or your own device. Consult the Using Kaltura guidelines for additional information.
    • Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services to request accommodations.
  • Listen to your audio prior to posting to ensure it is loud enough.
  • Upload your slides, speaker’s notes and recording to the assignment area.

Submission Requirements

  • Written communication: Your slides need to include bullet points highlighting the key concepts. As a best practice, each slide should contain no more than 5–7 bullet points and no more than 5–7 words per bullet point. Use speaker notes to include additional information. Appropriately balance text and visuals. Make sure your content is clear, persuasive, well-organized and free of errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
  • Title slide: Develop a descriptive title for your presentation of approximately 5–15 words. It should stir interest, yet maintain professional decorum.
  • Length: Approximately 15–20 slides; 30-minute recording. Use Kaltura to upload your recording to the courseroom, or provide a working link your instructor can access.
  • Font and font size: Appropriate size and weight for presentations, generally 24–28 points for headings and no smaller than 18 points for bullet-point text.
  • Reference slide: Include a minimum of three citations to current scholarly and or authoritative sources in a final reference slide. These sources need to be from your independent research, over and above the resources provided to you in the unit studies. Current means they can be no more than five years old.
  • APA format: Ensure in-text citations and references adhere to APA format. For an APA refresher, consult the APA Style and Format page on Campus.
  • Scoring guide: Review this assignment’s scoring guide so that you understand how your instructor is going to evaluate your work.
