PLEASE BRING A CD or a flashdrive WITH A COPY OF YOUR PRESENTATION ON IT. THE MOVABLE STORAGE UNIT WILL HAVE YOUR PRESENTATION IN MS WORD, WORD PERFECT, OR POWER POINT. PLEASE BRING ME FLOPPY, FLASHDRIVE OR CD AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS ON THE DAY OF YOUR PRESENTATION. THANK YOU.
 

This assignment is 35% of your grade. It requires:

preparing a two to three page synopsis for class distribution, summarizing conceptual and empirical literature on your paper topic. The synopsis outlines the topic, discusses major concepts and findings, and highlights directions for future research.

leading a brief discussion on the major points about your paper topic.

most students also prepare a Power Point presentation. Access to prior Power Point presentations for the Group Processes course is available under the "Presentations" folder in our Blackboard class site.

PLEASE ALSO PLACE YOUR SYNOPSIS ON flash drive, OR CD (PowerPoint, MS Word, or WordPerfect format). I WILL POST THESE SYNOPSES AND PRESENTATIONS TO OUR CLASS WEB SITE.

Make a copy of your handout for you, the entire class, and for me.

Try leaving 5 minutes for questions and discussion (I know, that's only 10-15 minutes for a presentation, but remember, people can scan the handout!)

Include examples in your presentation and handout. Concrete examples are a very helpful way to illustrate concepts.
 


Generally, I emphasize a conceptual summary:


LOGISTICS 2009

I am assuming that everyone plans to present using Power Point (this isn't a requirement but it does seem to work out this way...)
 


 
IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT!
(1) Please remember to give me a storage device (e.g., CD) (formatted for IBM/PC, not MAC) with your summary on it. I will post summaries to our Web site. I can read either Word or Word Perfect document files (and Power Point too).
(2) You may use varied media in your presentation/ discussion BUT please let me know ONE WEEK beforehand whether you need any equipment OTHER THAN an overhead projector, computer for Power Point, a VCR or some other audio-visual aid. I will make sure that the appropriate software is available on our classroom computer. THANK YOU!
