    Discussion Material


    1. Logistical check in
    2. Portfolio Showcase/Literature Review Presentation
      Each presenter will have a total of 8 minutes to showcase their portfolio/present their literature review. There will be 2 minutes of questions and answer time after each presenter. If your showcase/presentation is shorter than 8 minutes there is no penalty. However, please make sure to address the following:
      • In the Portfolio Showcase share information about yourself based on the portfolio. This will be a good practice on talking about yourself and presenting yourself to others in a professional manner. It is always difficult to find the right balance of marketing yourself to others while being modest and accurate at the same time. It is always good to practice this and hear for yourself what you sound like when you talk about yourself. This experience may give you ideas on how to effectively communicate with others about yourself in the future both in the written and oral communication formats. Additionally, share any technical insights you encountered while preparing your portfolio. Do not worry whether it may be an insight to others or not, as long as it was an insight to you do not hesitate to share.
      • In the Literature Review Presentation summarize all sections of your paper in a balanced manner. As you start presenting in professional conferences you will often encounter situations where you do not have enough time what so ever to present everything that you wrote. Therefore, it is crucial that you acquire an appropriate level of highlighting the essence of your work. As you engage in future presentations of your work, you will find out that presenting your work and talking about it to others is part of writing as well. You may find out new ways to express your ides both in the written and oral communication format as a result of presenting your work.
    3.  Whole Class Discussions of any Issues



        1.    Individual check in with instructor as needed and individual work time for class.
