Practicum Project Presentation Overview
PowerPoint Presentation Notes Your PowerPoint presentation should exhibit a professional appearance that reflects thoughtful, thorough preparation. Consider the audience’s needs, and use your creativity to design an engaging presentation. Your audience is your classmates and Instructor. This presentation also serves as your Portfolio Assignment for this course.
The use of PowerPoint as a presentation method allows you to create a narrative to convey essential aspects of your Practicum Project. As you develop your presentation, structure the information to provide a logical flow from the beginning (introduction) to the middle to the end (conclusion).
Determine a title for each slide. As you create each slide, include the slide title at the top to help orient the audience, and make sure the slide text is concise and easy to read.
While you may wish to include a few photos or graphics, be mindful that including too many of these items can be distracting and may result in problems with file size and downloading.
The evaluation of your presentation will address not just the appropriateness and inclusion of all required content, but also the extent to which the slides are neat, organized, and visually appealing.
