Follow the link below to the OneDrive folder titled "Week 7." Note the “Available Outlines” and “Completed Outlines” folders, as well as the sample outline document provided.

This week’s Professional Experience will involve three steps.

First, you will create an outline (see below for guidelines) for your Week 8 presentation based on Week 6’s PowerPoint presentation (a video preview is available under the Week 7 tab in Blackboard).

Second, you will choose another student’s outline from the “Available Outlines” folder to review. Download the student's outline to your desktop. Do not remove the student's name from the file name! Just add your initials to the end of the file name. For example, if I chose Jane Doe's presentation to review, I would save it to my desktop as Jane_Doe_Presentation_Outline_RC. In that document provide comments, suggestions for improvement, and point out strong elements of the presentation outline in the Comments column.

Finally, submit that same file with your comments to Blackboard (Not OneDrive!) to the Week 7 Professional Experience #4 link. That will prompt me to grade your assignment.

I will periodically move submissions with student comments to the “Completed Outlines” folder, where you can look to find your fellow students’ critiques of your outlines when they are finished.
