You are spending considerable time pulling together an oral presentation. Presentations are meant to be seen and not just by the instructor, so post a draft of your presentation and provide feedback on at least two of your classmates’ presentations. This is an excellent way to get ideas for future presentations you will be doing. Your feedback to each other is very important, and you are encouraged to provide feedback to more than two classmates.
Since we do not meet “live,” it is not possible for you to actually deliver your presentation to the class; however, you can prepare an outline for about a 3-5-minute informative presentation for your Formal Report, and then develop an audio-narrated PowerPoint presentation that corresponds with your outline. As a rule of thumb, a PowerPoint presentation is usually no more than one slide per minute; otherwise, your audience is “watching” and not “listening.” For longer presentations, the rule slides up to approximately three minutes per slide.
The topic of your presentation is the one you chose for the Formal Report:
Imagine you work for a national employment/placement agency. Your clients range from the first-time job seeker to the executive level. You specialize in working with adults who have some work experience and who have just completed a BA or BS degree from your alma mater, Saint Leo University.
