difference of hearing versus listening, communications homework help

Primary Discussion Response is due by Friday (11:59:59pm Central), Peer Responses are due by Tuesday (11:59:59pm Central).

The next step in creating an effective presentation is working from the foundation that you have laid in the previous week. Using your submission from the previous week, you will begin to refine your presentation by adding more dialog to your notes section, making a more attractive visual presentation, and recording your voice. Many of your additions and edits should come from the grading feedback that your instructor has provided as well as feedback from peers from the Unit 2 Discussion Board.

Primary Task Response:

Step 1:

Based on the information that you have in your notes section of each slide, begin to write out the dialog for your presentation, including your introduction, main points, and conclusion slides.

  • For example, if you previously wrote in your notes section “difference of hearing versus listening” you might now write, “The difference between hearing and listening is that hearing is a basic sense, but listening is the actual absorbing of the information that you are hearing.”
  • Add in-text citations to the notes sections for any new information that you have brought into the dialog or slides.

Step 2:

Evaluate the content on your slides, and make proper edits to them. Do the following:

  • Evaluate if you are making full use of bulleted primary, secondary, or tertiary points.
  • Condense full sentences that are present on your slides into short statements.
  • Modify slide content that does not fit the slide topic.
  • Ensure that the slide content supports the dialogue in the notes section.

Step 3:

Look through your presentation, and find at least 2 of your slides that could be enhanced by a visual aid. Add a picture, graph, or diagram to the slide area. Do the following:

  • Use high quality images.
  • Avoid images that have a copyright or watermark on them.
  • Ensure that the images do not overlap with any text.
  • Do not use a picture just to use it; make sure that the image enhances your presentation without being distracting.

Step 4:

Practice recording your presentation. Review the recording module to familiarize yourself with how to record to a PowerPoint presentation. This is an excellent time to begin getting comfortable with recording yourself. Do not worry too much about vocal errors at this point. This is intended to be a practice run of your presentation. Do the following:

  • Record your introduction, main points, and conclusion slides in your presentation.
  • Use your notes section as your dialog, but keep in mind that you should not read the notes word for word and should sound natural in your delivery.
  • Focus on practicing for now; you can refine your dialog for your final presentation

Once you have completed your rough draft presentation, please upload it to the discussion board area as your main posting.

Peer Responses: Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word reply. You should try to find peers that are different than the ones you replied to last week. In your replies, you should consider the following:

  • What areas do you feel your peer did well on?
  • What is an area of opportunity for your peer?
  • Do you have any suggestions for outside resources that you have found that also support your peer’s presentation?
