M232/MEA2203 Section 01 Pathophysiology (5.5 Weeks) – Online Plus – 2020 Spring Quarter Term 2
This week is your Final Exam and time to review all you have learned.
No one person will have all the information on all diseases, this is
why there are specialty areas in medicine. However, having a good
overview of the more common diseases that affect the body is important
to any health care professional.
For this week discussion post:
- Share one thing new you learned.
- Share one thing about your health you changed as a result of what you read or learned.
G171/COM1388 Section 04 Communicating in Your Profession (5.5 Weeks) – Online Plus – 2020 Spring Quarter Term 2
Now that you’ve finished your written proposal, you are ready to
create a PowerPoint presentation based on it. This should not be a
reproduction of your proposal; rather it is to share information about
your proposal with your instructor.
PowerPoint Presentation Guidelines
To create your Final Course Project PowerPoint Presentation, you
should not copy and paste large sections of text from your written
proposal. A PowerPoint presentation is different from a written report.
Your slides should include only the main points from your proposal, and
these main points should be condensed into short phrases and
explanations. Your PowerPoint presentation should include the following
The presentation should include 9-10 slides, including the Title
Slide. It is important to ensure your instructor can follow your
presentation and understand what you are communicating. You will not be
recording your voice; you will be giving your instructor your script
directly on the slides themselves and in the dialog box.
The presentation should include:
- Title Slide
- Purpose Statement Slides
- Audience Slides
- Problem Slides
- Original and Creative Solution Slides
- Visuals that enhance your presentation
Your title slide should include the following:
- An appropriate title for your proposal presentation
- The name of this course (in place of the name of the company preparing the proposal)
- The author’s name
- The date of the presentation
Purpose Statement (1-2 slides)
Include the purpose statement from your project. Add a reflective
statement if you think you have fulfilled the purpose of the project.
Audience (1 slide)
Your slides should explain who the audience of your proposal includes and what their needs are.
- Tell how you will overcome skepticism.
- What objections do you anticipate?
Problem Section (2-3 slides)
Just as you did in the written proposal, you must prove that a
serious problem exists. You may want to answer these questions about
- How long has the problem existed?
- Is it worse now? Why?
- What are some relevant statistics?
- What are other people doing to solve similar problems?
Original and Creative Solution Section (2-3 slides)
Your slides should briefly outline the change you propose and want
approved. Your solution should be directly related to the problem you
just documented and be appropriate to the audience you’ve described.
Again, please remember that PowerPoint slides should use short
phrases and explanations, not complete paragraphs from your written
proposal. You should consider using visuals in this section if you cite
numerical data to support your plan.
In the overall format of your PowerPoint slides, please use the following guideline:
- Use an appropriate design template. Assume that your presentation will be given in a “bright” room (with the lights on).
The following resources may help you as you create your PowerPoint and cite your sources:
A Word on Visuals…
Make sure your visuals explain, support, or enhance your presentation. Do not use visuals simply as decoration.
Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.
Save your assignment as a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. (Mac
users, please remember to append the “.pptx” extension to the filename.)
The name of the file should be your first initial and last name,
followed by an underscore and the name of the assignment, and an
underscore and the date. An example is shown below:
Expert Solution Preview
As a medical professor, it is important for me to design and conduct lectures, evaluate student performance, and provide feedback through examinations and assignments. In this task, I will provide answers to the content provided.
Answer to Module 06 Discussion – What Did You Learn?:
One thing new I learned is the correlation between obesity and type 2 diabetes. I learned that obesity is a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes, as it causes insulin resistance that can ultimately lead to diabetes.
I haven’t changed anything about my health as a result of what I read or learned.
Answer to Module 06 Course Project – Final PowerPoint Presentation:
To create a Final Course Project PowerPoint Presentation, students are expected to condense the main points from their written proposal into short phrases and explanations. The presentation should include the Title Slide, Purpose Statement Slides, Audience Slides, Problem Slides, Original and Creative Solution Slides, and Visuals that enhance the presentation.
The Title Slide should include an appropriate title for the proposal presentation, the name of the course, the author’s name, and the date of the presentation. The Purpose Statement Slides should include the purpose statement from the project and a reflective statement if the purpose of the project has been fulfilled.
The Audience Slides should explain who the audience of the proposal includes and what their needs are. The presenter should tell how they will overcome skepticism and anticipate objections. The Problem Section should prove that a serious problem exists by answering specific questions about the problem, such as how long it has existed, why it is worse now, relevant statistics, and what others are doing to solve similar problems.
The Original and Creative Solution Section should outline the change proposed and be directly related to the problem documented. The solution should also be appropriate to the audience described. Finally, the visual aids should explain, support, or enhance the presentation, rather than just being decorative.
Students should follow the provided guidelines, use an appropriate design template, and submit their completed assignment in Microsoft PowerPoint format.
