  • Create and deliver a presentation to your workplace team using appropriate tone, language, structure, and technology.

Introduction

Throughout this course, you are learning how strong communication can help you deliver and receive the information you need to be successful. But being successful will also depend on your ability to work well with others to collaborate on various projects and tasks. When it comes to collaborating in the modern world, there are a number of tools you can use to improve the way you send and receive ideas and information, one of these ways is through effective presentations.

Giving clear and concise presentations is part of working well together in a team and also requires you to be familiar with a different set of technology tools. This assessment allows you to demonstrate those skills.

Overview

Using outdated or redundant communication tools can cause miscommunication and overlooked messages. To improve efficiency and effectiveness, organizations routinely assess their needs and practices against available technology advances. Doing this helps ensure that they are using the most appropriate tools for their purposes. But with the rapid rate of innovation these days, it can be difficult to stay abreast of all possible devices, programs, and applications.

Scenario

Wanda thought your criteria for email use and your suggested app for some messages were excellent! Although she discussed the new procedures for using email and the app in a face-to-face meeting, you know that you will not have the time or ability to personally meet with all members of your team, as they are located all around the country. You decide the best way to communicate the new guidelines is with a recorded audiovisual presentation that members of the team can watch at their leisure. In the presentation, you will reiterate your finding from the memo you sent to Wanda.

Instructions

  1. Develop and record a 5–7 minute presentation with slides, along with notes or a transcript to ensure accessibility to everyone.
  2. Your presentation should:
    • Share your guidelines for using email and your reasons for them.
    • Introduce the digital tool for the team to use when not using email.
    • Make a case for why the digital tool you are introducing is the most effective for the team as an alternative to email.
  3. Evaluate your presentation and how an audience would react by completing the Six Ws Worksheet for Assessment 5 [DOCX]. If needed, edit your presentation.
  4. Submit your Six Ws Worksheet for Assessment 5 [DOCX]worksheet along with your presentation and transcript.

Requirements

  • References to course material or library resources should be cited in APA format.
  • Use a font of appropriate size and weight for presentation, generally 24–28 points for headings and no smaller than 18 points for bullet-point text.
  • Audio and video should be included in one file, and that file should play inside Courseroom (in other words, it should not require downloading to hear or play it).

Competencies Measured

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and scoring guide criteria:

  • Competency 1: Interpret a speaker’s message to develop an appropriate response.
    • Evaluate a presentation and anticipate audience reactions by considering the Six Ws of communication.

  • Competency 3: Use appropriate technology solutions to effectively communicate time-related tasks.
    • Communicate email guidelines for a workplace environment and reasons for them through an audiovisual presentation.
