LEARNING OBJECTIVES COVERED

  1. Format text in a PowerPoint presentation
  2. Apply a design theme to a PowerPoint presentation

ThinkstockPhotos-142088285.jpg

BACKGROUND

In this week’s discussion post, we will be learning about effective presentations and how to create them using Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint presentations are useful not only while you are in school but also once you are in the workplace. They are a great way to convey information and ideas to others. Below you will find great tips on how to make the best of your presentation time and keep your audience engaged in the information you are sharing.

How can you make a good presentation even more effective?

First, watch this humorous video for a presentation of the most common mistakes made by PowerPoint presenters.

Links to an external video (3:59)Life After Death by PowerPoint (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)
Next, read the information below by SkillsYouNeed.com. It provides 10 Tips based on published advice from expert presenters around the world, which will help to take your presentations from merely ‘good’ to ‘great’. By bringing together advice from a wide range of people, the aim is to cover a whole range of areas. Whether you are an experienced presenter, or just starting out, there should be ideas here to help you to improve.

Tip 1: Show your Passion and Connect with your Audience

  • It’s hard to be relaxed and be yourself when you’re nervous.
  • But time and again, the great presenters say that the most important thing is to connect with your audience, and the best way to do that is to let your passion for the subject shine through.
  • Be honest with the audience about what is important to you and why it matters.
  • Be enthusiastic and honest, and the audience will respond.

Tip 2: Focus on your Audience’s Needs

  • Your presentation needs to be built around what your audience is going to get out of the presentation.
  • As you prepare the presentation, you always need to bear in mind what the audience needs and wants to know, not what you can tell them.
  • While you are giving the presentation, you also need to remain focused on your audience’s response, and react to that.
  • You need to make it easy for your audience to understand and respond.

Tip 3: Keep it Simple: Concentrate on your Core Message

  • When planning your presentation, you should always keep in mind the question: What is the key message (or three key points) for my audience to take away?
  • You should be able to communicate that key message very briefly.
  • Some experts recommend a 30-second ‘elevator summary’, others that you can write it on the back of a business card, or say it in no more than 15 words.
  • Whichever rule you choose, the important thing is to keep your core message focused and brief.
  • And if what you are planning to say doesn’t contribute to that core message, don’t say it.

Tip 4: Smile and Make Eye Contact with your Audience

  • This sounds very easy, but a surprisingly large number of presenters fail to do it.
  • If you smile and make eye contact, you are building rapport, which helps the audience to connect with you and your subject. It also helps you to feel less nervous, because you are talking to individuals,not to a great mass of unknown people.
  • To help you with this, make sure that you don’t turn down all the lights so that only the slide screen is visible.Your audience needs to see you as well as your slides.

Tip 5: Start Strongly

  • The beginning of your presentation is crucial. You need to grab your audience’s attention and hold it.
  • They will give you a few minutes’ grace in which to entertain them, before they start to switch off if you’re dull. So don’t waste that on explaining who you are. Start by entertaining them.
  • Try a story (see tip 7 below), or an attention-grabbing (but useful) image on a slide.

Tip 6: Remember the 10-20-30 Rule for Slideshows
This is a tip from Guy Kawasaki of Apple. He suggests that slideshows should:

  • Contain no more than 10 slides;
  • Last no more than 20 minutes; and
  • Use a font size of no less than 30 point.

This last is particularly important as it stops you trying to put too much information on any one slide. This whole approach avoids the dreaded ‘Death by PowerPoint’. As a general rule, slides should be the sideshow to you, the presenter. A good set of slides should be no use without the presenter, and they should definitely contain less, rather than more, information, expressed simply. If you need to provide more information, create a bespoke handout and give it out after your presentation.

Tip 7: Tell Stories

  • Human beings are programmed to respond to stories.
  • Stories help us to pay attention, and also to remember things. If you can use stories in your presentation, your audience is more likely to engage and to remember your points afterwards. It is a good idea to start with a story, but there is a wider point too: you need your presentation to act like a story.
  • Think about what story you are trying to tell your audience, and create your presentation to tell it.

Tip 8: Use your Voice Effectively

  • The spoken word is actually a pretty inefficient means of communication, because it uses only one of your audience’s five senses. That’s why presenters tend to use visual aids, too. But you can help to make the spoken word better by using your voice effectively.
  • Varying the speed at which you talk, and emphasizing changes in pitch and tone all help to make your voice more interesting and hold your audience’s attention.

Tip 9: Use your Body Too

  • It has been estimated that more than three quarters of communication is non-verbal.
  • That means that as well as your tone of voice, your body language is crucial to getting your message across. Make sure that you are giving the right messages: body language to avoid includes crossed arms, hands held behind your back or in your pockets, and pacing the stage.
  • Make your gestures open and confident, and move naturally around the stage, and among the audience too, if possible.

Tip 10: Relax, Breathe and Enjoy

  • If you find presenting difficult, it can be hard to be calm and relaxed about doing it.
  • One option is to start by concentrating on your breathing. Slow it down, and make sure that you’re breathing fully. Make sure that you continue to pause for breath occasionally during your presentation too.

Relax

If you can bring yourself to relax, you will almost certainly present better. If you can actually start to enjoy yourself, your audience will respond to that, and engage better.

Do Schools Kill Creativity by Sir Ken Robinson TED Talk Analysis Paper

TED Talk Analysis

TED talks are organized and highly-vetted public speeches that give normal people—people like you and me—a chance to spread their message to the world. Visit TED.com and watch several TED speakers. Note that you can sort by topic, speaker, and a host of other criteria. You can watch any TED talk you wish. If you’re looking a more concentrated list, you might also wish to visit this link, which highlights the 25 most popular TED talks of all time.

After watching a TED talk (or a few!), write a short 300-500 word (1.5-2 page) analysis of that talk. Please ensure that you cite the talk you watched in appropriate APA formatting. You should answer the following questions in your analysis:

What is the topic and who is the speaker?

How does the speaker get the audience’s attention in the introduction?

What are the main points of the talk? Are they easily identifiable?

What techniques of delivery does the speaker use effectively (e.g., emotion, vivid language, nonverbals, humor, etc.)? Please be sure to provide examples.

How does the speaker conclude the speech? Does it echo the themes in the introduction and “tie the knot” or does it go in a different direction?

Is the speech effective? Did it leave an impact on you? Tell us why or why not.

What did you learn about speech delivery after listening to this speech?

Homeland Security Research Paper

This assignment is a take-home essay assignment of four questions for which you are expected to develop a 2-3 page essay for each question that fully responds to the question being posed.

Essay 1: CO-3: Assess risk management processes for supporting resource relocation.

The basic equation for risk is defined as R = ƒ(C*V*T) where R is the level of risk, C is the consequences (public health, our economy, government action, public confidence in our institutions) of an attack, V is an assessment of the vulnerability of a potential target (how hard or easy it would be for it to be hit by terrorists) and T is the threat or the likelihood that a specific target will suffer an attack or disaster from a specific weapon. The Department of Homeland Security has stated that it will apply risk management principles to homeland security operations and has stated that “Ultimately, homeland security is about effectively managing risks to the Nation’s security” (DHS, 2010, p. 2). Drawing upon your class readings and additional research examine how risk management is used by the homeland security enterprise and how that use benefits such aspects as resource allocation, strategic planning, grant award, or any of the multitudes of other homeland security issues or operations.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security. (2010). Quadrennial homeland security review report: A strategic framework for a secure homeland. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office. Retrieved from http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/qhsr_report.pdf

Essay 2: CO-1: Analyze the organizational roles, responsibilities, and strategies of homeland security and homeland defense.

In your readings you have been provided a variety of definitions for the term homeland security. Additionally, the national strategies and readings have talked to the difference between homeland security and homeland defense. Drawing upon your readings and other class materials, craft two columns; one labeled Homeland Security and the otherHomeland Defense. Under the headers of each column list those missions, tasks, duties, responsibilities, operations, etc. which are identified from the national policies, strategies and readings. Some tasks may be listed under both columns. Where this occurs, be sure to identify if there is any element of that item that is specific to either homeland security or homeland defense. Lastly, drawing upon the list you developed, provide a definition of homeland security.

Essay 3: CO-4: Describe protection of key assets and critical infrastructure.

Critical infrastructure is defined in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan as “Systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital that the incapacity or destruction of such may have a debilitating impact on the security, economy, public health or safety, environment, or any combination of these matters, across any Federal, State, regional, territorial, or local jurisdiction” (DHS, 2009, p. 109). From this definition, one can reasonably presume that protection of these assets is vital to the well-being of the United States and as such is an essential element of homeland security. Drawing upon the readings provide your assessment of the capability of the nation’s infrastructure protection program to ensure the survivability of its critical infrastructure.

Reference:

U.S. Department of Homeland Security. (2009). National Infrastructure Protection Plan. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office. Retrieved from http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/NIPP_Plan.pdf

Essay 4: CO-2: Evaluate intelligence support to homeland security policy makers and practitioners.

Provide an examination of the various elements that comprise the intelligence community from local law enforcement to national agencies and how each of those entities contributes to the development of homeland security intelligence. In crafting your response, it would be good to remember the lessons learned from the 9/11 Commission on intelligence sharing and analyze how those lessons/recommendations are being addressed. Lastly, your examination of the question should include the issue of domestic versus foreign intelligence.

Exit interview

Exit Interview

The purpose of this assignment is for you to participate in an exit interview with the director of the center where you have been serving your internship this term. This assignment provides you with multiple opportunities that will be valuable in your professional career, as you will get to meet one-on-one with the center director to gauge your progress and successes throughout the term. This assignment also provides you with the opportunity to pilot your portfolio on a real center director and participate in a mock interview for a position you would like to obtain in your future career. Finally, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your experience this term and to request a letter of recommendation from the center director that you can include in your professional portfolio. As with all of our assignments in this class, please consider using your work here in your own professional career portfolio.

Questions for your director to use in the Exit Interview

  • Tell me about yourself …goals
  • What are your strengths?
  • Describe NAEYC accreditation and how it impacts quality at a child care center and describe your understanding of NAEYC.
  • Tell me your belief about guidance. Are there any situations that you find challenging when guiding children?
  • How do you involve parents?
  • Tell me a little bit about your teaching philosophy.
  • How does your education set you apart from someone who does not have this degree?
  • How do you deal with gossip at the work place?
  • What does an early childhood classroom look like?
  • How do you meet individual needs in the classroom?
  • Do you belong to a professional organization?
  • What is your greatest career or academic achievement?

Planning the Exit Interview

Consult with the center director about the purpose of this assignment. Tell him/her that you would like to schedule a one-hour meeting that has two main purposes:

  • To conduct a mock interview for the position that you would like to obtain in your professional career
  • To discuss your progress and successes over the course of the term

Ask if you can video record the interview. Also, ask the director if he/she would be willing to write an official letter of recommendation on your behalf for you to include in your own professional portfolio. Schedule the interview.

Prepare your own professional portfolio for the center director to view. Pretend as though you are preparing your portfolio for an interview with a child care center director you have never met before.

You may further prepare for the interview by reviewing Chapter 6 in How to Develop a Professional Portfolio, 6th Ed., as this chapter includes helpful advice for navigating interview situations and using your portfolio to your advantage.

Remember to prepare a note or token of thanks for the director for working with you and opening the center to you throughout the term. The director, staff, children, and parents have undoubtedly done a lot to help you this term; you should thank them all accordingly. No matter what, you need to provide the director with a thank you letter after the exit interview is complete.

Conducting the Exit Interview

Arrive for your interview on time. Dress professionally. Bring your portfolio and your video recording device. Remember that the goal is for you to get a feel for interviewing for the position that you want, no matter how informal or at ease you have come to feel at the center or with the director.

Set up your video recorder before the interview begins. Once the director begins the interview, you may begin recording.

Participate in a full interview with the director. Answer and ask questions appropriately. Turn off the recorder when the interview is complete.

After the recorder is turned off, ask the director for verbal feedback on the interview process. This is also the time to discuss the director’s overall feedback and professional advice for you, based on your work in the center throughout the term. Listen carefully to what the director has to say, as this feedback can help to inform your practice in positive, lasting, and meaningful ways.

At the end of your exit interview, ask the director if he/she would be willing to provide you with a professional letter of recommendation for you to include in your portfolio. Remember to give the center director (and others) a “thank you” note to show your appreciation.

Reporting on the Exit Interview

After you have completed the exit interview, prepare digital files of the interview to submit to your instructor. The most accessible video files are .avi, .mov, .mpg, .mp4 and .wmv. Please ensure that your instructor can open and view the video file type that you have chosen to send. If you were unable to video record the exit interview, you must submit a 250-500 word summary of the experience, in addition to other assignment requirements.

After the exit interview experience is complete, prepare a 500 word report that answers the following questions:

  • How do you feel about the interview process?
  • What feedback did the director provide for you?
  • How might you incorporate this feedback into your practice in your future career?
  • What did you learn from participating in the exit interview?
  • What do you need to do in order to feel best prepared to embark on the next step in your career?

To successfully complete the Exit Interview assignment:

  • Prepare for the exit interview by explaining the purpose of this assignment to the director and scheduling an interview time.
  • Prepare your professional portfolio for the interview.
  • Participate in the interview. Video record the interview, if possible.
  • After the interview, ask the director for feedback on both the interview and your progress over the course of the term.
  • Collect a professional letter of recommendation from the center director to include in your portfolio.
  • Provide “thank you” notes to the director and other staff, parents, and children who have supported your learning and professional growth over the course of the term.
  • Write a 250-500 word report of the exit interview experience.
  • Submit the report with the video file of your interview. Please submit all files for this assignment in one folder.
