Preparing the assignment:
Follow these guidelines when completing this assignment. Speak with your faculty member if you have questions.
· Students can do this project either individually or in groups. Consult with your course instructor about the size of the groups or the number of individual projects that can be accommodated.
· As part of this project, you will select a teaching topic of your choice related to the course topics (i.e., women’s
health, newborn, maternity). Consult with faculty for approval of your selected topic.
· Complete an outline and submit to dropbox.
· Construct your project using a software tool or application you are familiar with (i.e., Google Docs, Microsoft Word 2010 or later, PowerPoint, Prezi, or a video platform).
These guidelines apply to each individual student and should be adjusted per size of the group. (For example, an individual would do five slides, and if there are three members in the group, the group should create a 15-slide presentation. Similarly, a three-member group would do a 4.5–6-minute video rather than a 2-minute video.)
· PowerPoint or Prezi:
· Five slides maximum, excluding title and reference slides
· Follow 7-point rule for PowerPoint
· Front and back, trifold
· 12-point font
· Video (i.e., commercial, public service announcement)
