Course Description (Higher Education)
Informative and engaging group presentation actively promoting class participation.
In order to share experiences and insights on the decision-making scenario, the group is asked to prepare a 20 minute presentation based on research and analysis of the chosen topic, and where relevant, integrating group members' work-related experiences. The presentation may be in any format the group considers appropriate. Examples may be one or a combination of formal meetings (using agendas, allocating roles and designated seating arrangements), power point presentations, small group work (facilitated by group members), role plays, reality formats and so on. Use of visual material, creativity, and interactive activities are encouraged to stimulate audience interest and engagement
The presentation should reflect theory and practice and perhaps include a handout.
All group members are expected to participate in the presentation. Marks for Part 1 will be allocated equally within the group unless advised otherwise by the lecturer.
Part 2 - Individual contributions following presentations - 5%
This required participation in other group's presentations including completion of a feedback sheet.
Students individually are required to participate in a minimum of five presentations (other than that associated with their group). At the end of the presentation, students must submit to the lecturer a feedback on the form provided. This will then be distributed to the group. This feedback should reflect developed thinking, supportive and constructive comments, and show a reasonable effort.
Part 3 - Group reflective review - 5%
Task - 500 word group reflective review (maximum words excluding references [if any] - no minimum word count)
Following individual discussion contributions, the group will review their presentation and audience (other students) feedback in the light of other learnings in the course. The review should make a critical appraisal of key issues, approaches to analysis and indicate the key learning resulting from this assessment (this may include comments on both the content and process).
The group might also comment on: What worked well? What did not work well? How might the presentation have been improved? Was the feedback received as expected?
