Creating a PowerPoint Presentation for Future Colleagues

For this week’s Assignment, you will create a PowerPoint® presentation that illustrates the connection between current psychology research and your role as a leader in a selected career field. You will present a psychology research article that studies a specific challenge that could be encountered in your career field.

  1. Go to the Kaplan Library and select a topic that connects psychology with your career field. Be sure to select the peer-reviewed box, so that you know your research studies are primary academic sources.

    For example:
    • A future addictions counselor may select the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy.
    • A future business professional may select ways of improving work morale.
    • An early childhood development professional may select behavior modification techniques to improve classroom behavior.
  2. After reviewing several studies, select one research study that most interests you.
    • Be sure to email the Kaplan Librarian if you need help with this. (The Librarian will likely need one business day to respond.)
    • Click on the Cite link to bring up an APA reference for your article.
  3. After reviewing the entire article, focus on the abstract for the main highlights of the research.
  4. Create a presentation that is at least 10 slides long to present this information to future colleagues. Consider this presentation training for future colleagues on how your study of psychology relates to particular problem in your career field. Your slides should address the following questions:
    • Identify your career field and article you selected.
    • Describe the highlights of the research study.
    • Relate the research to your career field.
    • Identify ways in which this information can be implemented into your career field.

Consider reviewing the Kaplan University Writing Center article, “Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations” prior to starting your presentation.
