12) The Group’s PowerPoint presentation is to be uploaded to the Assessment 3 Dropbox on the day of the presentation. A nominated member of the group is to upload the Group presentation along with their own individual Topic presentation.
The final presentation will take the form of a single PowerPoint document which individual students will speak to. The Group PowerPoint will include an Introduction to the overall Theme and a Conclusion, between these will be the individual topics ordered logically and creatively.
The Group will need to decide who will give, or how, the Theme Introduction and Conclusion (each 2 minutes).
The Group will need to decide in which order the individual topics are presented (each 3 minutes, MAX 4 MINUTES). The order in which the topics are presented may help the communication of the overall Theme, and therefore improve the Group presentation as a whole.
Your final grade will be assessed once your individual Topic presentation has been uploaded to the Assessment 3 Dropbox.
