Our first presentation draws on your work in the Innovation Paper. You will not have time to include all the content from the paper in the presentation, so the first challenge will be determining which aspect of the innovation you want to address. The content of the presentation could come directly from the paper itself; similarly, you could take some aspect of the paper and develop it further in the presentation; finally, you could take up some aspect of the innovation you did not address in the paper.
Regardless of what aspect of the innovation you address, your presentation should incorporate some element of analysis and/or argument – it will not be enough to simply inform us about your innovation. The presentation should be 5-6 minutes, and it should include a visual aid, likely using PowerPoint, Prezi, or Canva (or something else along these lines) and including at least four slides, the first of which should be a title slide (including your name and the title of your presentation).
If you include images on your visual aid, keep in mind that many images you find online are copyrighted; that is, they belong to the copywriter holder (normally the person who took the picture or created the image) and are not free for anyone to use. For our class purposes, you can still use these images for our class presentations, but it would not be appropriate to use copyrighted images, for example, in a professional presentation at a conference without permission. There are a number of places you can find images in the public domain or images that are otherwise free for you to use. Check out sites like Smithsonian Open Access, the Library of Congress, or Wikipedia. You can also search for Creative Commons content on sites like Flickr.
