Health Risk Behavior Slide Presentation

There are two parts to this assignment. The Assignment is completed first and then posted to the Discussion Board for peer review. 

The Assignment will not be graded at this time. Once the Assignment is completed and you receive feedback from Turnitin and your peers, you will revise and submit it for grading in Module 2 Assignment 4.

This assignment has audio/visual related components. Students who are registered with Disability Services and need an alternative assignment should work with the Disability Services office and notify the instructor at term start to make alternative arrangements. 

Examples of risky behavior may include smoking, alcohol consumption, unprotected sexual behavior, and drug abuse. Understanding risk behaviors is integral to prevention, education, and policy making activities. It is important for a public health professional to be able to apply critical thinking and evidence based scientific principles to educational activities and outreach for risk behaviors.

Slide presentations are used to efficiently and effectively communicate a message to a target audience in a short period of time. A slide presentation made using your webcam or other means to capture the audio portion of your presentation (narration) is more effective than just a slide presentation without any narration, and will help you better connect with your audience and verbally flesh out the slides. For this Assignment, you create a narrated slide presentation to educate a population about a health risk behavior that your research has indicated impacts that population. Your presentation Assignment is posted to the Discussion board for peer review, where you can learn from each other and give and receive feedback on what worked and what did not work so well.

Review the instructions for using Kaltura and check with your Instructor if you have any questions. Review the Learning Resources for this module and research your topic of choice. You may want to visit the Walden Library to find your primary research articles. Be sure to determine that the population you chose is significantly impacted by the particular risky behavior, because you prepare your slide presentation to educate this specific audience.

Part 1: Create Your Presentation

By Day 1 of Week 3, choose from one of these health risk behaviors: alcohol abuse, tobacco or other drug use, poor dental hygiene, sedentary lifestyle, or unhealthy diet. Select your health risk behavior and a target audience. Post a placeholder in the Discussion board to alert your colleagues to your choice of behavior and audience, as noted in the Discussion instructions. Try to choose a topic and audience combination that is different from what others chose in order to facilitate a broader range of topics.

By Day 5 of Week 3, complete your slide presentation with narration using a webcam or other media of choice and post it to the Discussion board for peer review. Your presentation should be approximately 10–15 slides, not including references. Your narration should be approximately one minute per slide, so a 15 slide presentation should last about 15 minutes. Also submit your written transcript of the narration to the Discussion board along with your presentation.

To effectively educate your target audience about the topic you chose, your presentation must include the following:

  • An appropriate title slide 
  • A slide providing key points for what the audience will learn from the presentation
  • A slide listing the important health related consequences of the behavior
  • 1–3 slides to explain the pathophysiology of one important health related consequence from the prior slide
  • 1–3 slides to explain the pathophysiology of a second important health consequence from your list
  • 1–2 slides with data on morbidity and/or mortality rates for the health consequences identified
  • 1–3 slides on prevention strategies that would be useful to your target audience
  • A slide with a final take home message
  • A final slide set with references—properly alphabetized and in APA format (Note: Use as many slides as are needed for readability.)
  • In-text citations, when needed, to show what information came from which reference (Note: References may be placed in small font at the bottom of each slide where they were used, but you still need to have the final slides with all of the listed references.)
  • A written transcript of your narration in a separate Word document also to be posted to the Discussion board.

Presentation Tips: See the resources on creating effective presentations and copyright basics. Remember to aim the level of your presentation to your audience. If you use any images, be sure they are public domain or your own and be aware of copyright laws. Be cognizant of slide quality and clarity. Too many pictures can clutter up the slide and detract from the presentation. The transcript is important to include in case your viewers have trouble getting the narration to work. It may be simplest to write out your narration transcript first, then record your narration, and then go back and edit the narration transcript to capture what you actually said.

Part 2 Discussion: Peer Review of Slide Presentation

Part of being a public health professional is to be able to effectively communicate public health information. One of the best ways to learn how to be an effective communicator is to practice giving and receiving feedback. In this module, the Discussion revolves around a peer review process of giving and receiving feedback on your slide presentation Assignment. Remember to be constructive. Explain what you noticed in a helpful way and be honest, but polite, in your feedback. Be open to feedback on your own presentation. 

By Day 1 of Week 3, choose a topic for your slide presentation and post a placeholder for your slide presentation topic on the Discussion board. In your post, include the title of your presentation and the audience you will educate. In order to have a wide array of presentations, try to avoid choosing something that is very similar to what a colleague has posted. For example, several people may do a topic on tobacco use, but each may choose a different focus and audience (i.e., youth versus adults, a different geographic location or other population, etc.).

By Day 5 of Week 3, complete the Assignment and post your completed slide presentation to the Discussion board, under your placeholder thread. Start reviewing other presentations.

By Day 7 of Week 3, begin Discussion of the slide presentations. Provide useful and polite critique to help your colleagues improve their presentations. Things you may consider as you discuss the presentations:

  • Highlight one or more aspects of the presentation that were particularly effective.
  • Suggest at least one additional idea, concept, or perspective that would add to the effectiveness of your colleagues' presentation, and provide a rationale for the suggestion.
  • Describe the overall effect of the presentation. Did it flow well? Was it clear? Was it aimed appropriately at the population that it was intended for? Were the slides too cluttered, too vague, or did they use distracting colors and styles? What did you learn about effective presenting from viewing another person's presentation?

Please review all of the postings and be sure that everyone has received some feedback. If you see someone has not received feedback by Day 3 of Week 4, please add something useful. You may continue the Discussion of slide presentations until the module ends on Day 7 of Week 4. However, keep in mind that you need to utilize the feedback you received and post a revised presentation by Day 7 of Week 4. The final revised presentation must be posted to the Assignment 4 – Module 2 link. You may post revisions to the Discussion board for peer feedback, but only the final version posted in the Assignment 4 – Module 2 folder will be graded. Your Instructor uses the Module 2 Peer Review Discussion Rubric to grade this Assignment.
