COMM 19999: SEMINAR PRESENTATION ASSIGNMENT

Presentation Guidelines

Format: Individual Presentation

This presentation provides you with an opportunity to share your research


findings with your colleagues in an academic setting. As such, you should
adhere to the formal conventions of a presentation, such as:

--Tables, charts and graphs may be included if useful and discreet, but
must be cited properly according to APA standards.
--Spell correctly and avoid grammatical errors.
--Professional tone and appearance

In order to have the presentation evaluated, students must present


before an audience.

Students will each submit his or her PowerPoint through SLATE


before your presentation date. If students make revisions and
present a substantially different version from their SLATE submission, a
20% penalty will apply to the presentation grade. Students who fail to
submit an electronic version online before the presentations begin will
also be subject to a 20% penalty.

Presentation order will be determined by random draw. Please note


that if you are not present for your presentation at the time that your
name is called (and do not have appropriate medical documentation),
you will receive a grade of 0.

Attendance for all presentation days is mandatory for all students,


unless appropriate documentation is provided. Students are expected
to be on-time for presentations, or else a penalty will be
applied to your presentation mark.

We will not take a formal break during presentations. Students may


excuse themselves between presentations for bio-breaks. If a
particular presentation topic is a potential trigger for you, you may also
step out between presentations. This helps protect student privacy as
no one else will know why you are leaving.
