·         The evaluation system must include measurable results for the appropriate outcome (cognitive, skill-based, affective, or return on investment) necessary to meet your identified needs. Needs vary from organization to organization, so teams must approach this portion with critical thinking skills on what they feel the company needs to do. The evaluation criteria must be specific, measurable, time-bound, and include a plan regarding what method — survey, test, or performance evaluation — will gather data.

·         A definition of a delivery method and how it would be applied for the project.

·         Pros and cons of at least two different delivery methods.

·         A recommendation of the delivery method you chose.

 

Coordinate with your team prior to working individually, so different delivery methods are discussed. (Review this week’s readings for instructional and delivery methods ideas). One team member, for example, might present a classroom delivery method, whereas another team member may present a Webinar, and a third member may present a Podcast, etc. After the final due date for the individual assignment passes, share your presentation with your Learning Team, so the team may hear your pitch or reasons why not to use a particular delivery method. Please do not share your individual instructor feedback with your team as that is between student and instructor.  You may summarize instructor’s comments if you wish. Since this is an Online class the presentation must include speaker’s notes for each presentation slide showing what you would say if you were delivering a 10-15 minute presentation. Do not double space speaker’s notes.

 

Format your presentation in a style consistent with APA guidelines. Post to the Assignment Tab.

 

Do not confuse this coordination discussion with your team as a part of the Weekly Reflection paper, which is on the week’s objectives. They are separate discussions.
