his week, you are participating in a professional virtual Communications Conference. The purpose of the conference is to share strategies for effective communication strategies. The purpose of your presentation is to guide the conference attendees (your classmates) in successfully applying the content of your presentation to their current or future careers.
Deliver a professional presentation concerning ONE topic from one of the following threads. (For instance, if choosing the first topic from Thread 1, you would do a presentation on just “conflict management” but not a presentation on “conflict management, intercultural communication, team work, and collaborative writing.”)
Thread 1 Interpersonal Communication
You may narrow the scope of your presentation if you desire, such as focusing on networking within the military rather than general networking strategies or focusing on salary negotiations in STEM fields rather than in general for all fields. Choose a topic for your presentation that is practical and relevant to your career interests!
Carefully review the presentation rubric. Your presentation must include the following:
- The equivalent of 8-16 PowerPoint slides although you may use any appropriate technology to present (PowerPoint, Prezi, Slideshare, etc.). Carefully follow the guidelines for Presentations discussed in Week 7!
- Two professional research sources correctly cited in APA style. In addition to using in-text citations for specific sentences or bulleted items on each slide, include a references slide or section at the end of the presentation. Review Documenting Sources.
- One visual aid created by you IN ADDITION TO any other decorative visuals used. The original visual aid created by you might be a pie chart, bar chart, line chart, infographic, flowchart, etc. Review Visual Media and Design, Visual Aids, and Visual Ethics for how to design effective visuals. For how to cite visuals, review Documenting Visuals.
