University of Mississippi Main Campus Labelling Theory Powerpoint
Don’t forget that your video presentation of your theory paper is also due on the 30th. Again, no late submissions will be accepted due to the short time period for grading before final course grades are due.
The videos are a maximum of 3-minutes in length. For most of you, this will be challenging to get all information included in such a short time period. That’s actually the point. The purpose of this assignment is to practice concise communication skills. Here are some tips to help:
- Write out a script.
- Time yourself and practice many times. If you find yourself going over time or having to talk too fast, revise your script.
- Identify key points. You don’t need to present every detail from your paper. Identify the highlights and focus on those.
- There are two main things you want to get across in your presentation: (1) briefly describe the theory and, most importantly, (2) discuss the key theoretical developments or contributions from the recent publications you found. You don’t need to describe each individual study in depth.
