You will also be able to apply your communication skills and integrate multimedia elements to communicate your message to an audience
In developing this presentation, you will be able to use your analyses from Final Project Part One as a starting point. The reflective nature of this activity prompts you to dig deeper and consider the implications posed by the critical analysis of your issue or event in diversity. How does studying diversity affect how you understand yourself as well as the world around you? You’ll also be challenged to incorporate a dash of creativity to enhance your message.
Multimedia Presentation: For the second part of the project, you will create a multimedia presentation that incorporates audio narration and visuals to articulate how critically analyzing your issue or event in diversity impacts your own framework of perception and ability to constructively engage in society.
PowerPoint: You are required to include a combination of text and visuals in order to support your PowerPoint presentation. Use the Check File Compatibility With Earlier Versions and Are You Having Video or Audio Playback Issues? resources to help you check compatibility between versions of Office. Also, follow the instructions on the Microsoft Support page to compress your presentation into a zipped file. You may upload a zipped file when submitting this assignment. Reducing the size of the PowerPoint presentation file by compressing it makes it easier for your instructor to download and grade.
Microphone: While it is not necessary to purchase a microphone for this project, you will need to have access to a microphone to record the narration of the presentation. You can use the external microphone of your device, a set of earbuds, or a borrowed microphone from a friend. This assignment is graded on the content of the narration and not the quality of the recording.
