PSY 540 Short Presentation Guidelines and Rubric
Twice during this course you will assume the role of a psychology professional in an applied setting and apply theories to suggest solutions to contemporary problems through a short presentation. The purpose of these presentations is to help you identify gaps in and propose improvements for professional disciplines based on the strengths and limitations of human cognitive systems while assessing foundational theories of cognitive psychology for the irrelevance to real-world issues.
Short presentations should be approximately five minutes in length and should be directed towards someone with limited or no background knowledge of psychological concepts or terminology. Because of this, you will want to explain relevant terms and concepts as you work through your presentation.
Be sure to identify the group your presentation is intended for as well as the group that will most benefit from your proposed strategies. Additionally, be sure to appropriately use professional terms and theories.
Your presentation can use a platform of your choosing. Potential example platforms include:
