1-2 Discussion: Planning to Communicate the Goals and Results of Your Project
First, introduce yourself to the class. Include your major and anything you would like to share about yourself. Then address the prompt below.
This discussion will build on your timeline and help you flesh out the communication plan and the artifact(s) that you will create to summarize your findings from your practicum activities. In your post, briefly describe your practicum project topic for your peers. Specifically, address whether your project and corresponding activities have changed in any way since the last module. Then, respond to the following questions, considering your plan for presenting the results of your project:
How do you think you will communicate the goals of your project (for example, how will you present your artifact)?
How do you think you will communicate the project’s results?
What type of artifact(s) (for example, an Excel spreadsheet, video, poster, brochure, educational handout, set of graphs, or summary tables) will you use to present your findings? Why did you select this type of artifact?
Note: A PowerPoint presentation is not an artifact option. Choose an artifact that will mobilize your stakeholders and get them interested and excited. A PowerPoint presentation is just a vehicle that can be used to capture several artifacts.
In your responses to your peers, choose peers who have selected a different artifact than you are proposing. What are the strengths in how your peer will communicate the goals of their project? What suggestion would you offer to help your peer to communicate both the goals and the results of their project more effectively? Do you think the artifact that your peer selected is the right approach to present their findings? Why or why not? What do you think will be effective and what are your suggestions for improvement?
