Topic and Research Design Presentation and Rationale
Prior to beginning work on this interactive assignment, it is recommended that you
review the recommended resources for this week as they will assist you in the creation
of an effective presentation of your Research Design.
This interactive assignment will provide you with an opportunity to create a dynamic
presentation of some of the materials you are creating for your Research Proposal. This
type of presentation would be used in the professional world to request Institutional
Review Board (IRB) approval, and potentially elicit funding, for your research.
In your presentation, summarize the main points and ideas for your Research Design.
Over the course of the week, you will have the opportunity to share feedback and
suggestions with your classmates and instructor, which may assist you in improving your
research proposal before submitting the Research Proposal.
For this interactive assignment, create a presentation file using PowerPoint and then
create a three- to five-minute screencast video of your presentation with pertinent
audio that includes important points about the content of each slide. In order to make
sure your video remains within the 3-5 minute time requirement, create a script for your
screencast video. You must attach your script to your initial post. It is recommended you

and that all pertinent information is presented in a manner that is easy to understand.
You may use any screencasting software of your choice (e.g., Screencast-O-Matic, Jing,
etc.). A quick-start guide is available for Screencast-O-Matic (Links to an external
