Final Presentation Your final presentation is a culmination of your action research and self-directed project experience. This presentation is a major requirement for this course. Remember you chose your topic area so be comfortable, confident and enthusiastic about what you are sharing with us. We are your supporters, and we want to learn from you. This presentation is a celebration of what you have been able to achieve as a learner and leader! Here are some considerations as you plan to develop and deliver your presentation: Take the time to determine how you want to deliver your presentation. Although a PowerPoint is the norm, it is not the only way to present. Contact your professor directly if you have interest in using other formats. In your presentation, be sure to give some background about your project as well as why you chose to focus on the issues and/or ideas you selected. At a minimum tell us about your project purpose, goals, actions, results, lessons learned and next steps. Please be sure to identify your “takeaway(s)” from the project for the audience. You are encouraged to be creative with your presentation including incorporating an interactive component if appropriate.
