Final Exam Univ 211

Univ 211 Final Exam — Oral Presentations Dec 2 and Dec 4

Most service learning experiences culminate in a sharing event of some type. As our final exam, you will share, in an individual 5 minute oral presentation, the work you are most proud of in the course. This can be a series of ongoing work specific to a particular role you played in your service, or it can be one specific project that you created for the client or course Makes assignment.  You must present your work visually – either using Prezzi, a collection of images in Storify, or an actual video or visual product(s) that you created for a client or for the course.

You can be proud of tangible work or intangible work, but you must be able to “show” the work in your presentation as you discuss it.   Figuring out what you are proud of, and how to reflect on it and share it, is an important piece of this assignment.

In your presentation, you should discuss why the work is useful or potentially useful to your service client’s goals, why the work was useful in terms of your own learning, and how you envisioned using the work or actually used the work to meet client needs.

Finally, in a remix, redo world: What would you do differently, how would you re-design or re-imagine, given what you’ve learned this semester?

FINAL EXAM DUE: Final Presentations will be take place during the week of Dec 2 and 4. If you are absent and do not present orally to the class, you can receive no higher than 50/F on your presentation exam (which you still must present to me in my office).  Sharing your work with the entire class is an important component of the final exam.
