PowerPoint Presentation for Logistic Management for Disasters Course
PowerPoint Presentation: Transportation Strategies for Logistic Responses (individual)
This is a 5-8 minute PPT presentation describing your approach to providing transportation resources to support disaster operations. You may focus on one method- air, sea, rail or road.
The key is to identify what resources you will need and how you intend to support/resource it. This does not need to be detailed; by now you should have a good understanding on how to “deliver the goods”. 8-10 slides max.
Slides should have no more than 4-6 lines of text per slide, and 1-3 ideas per slide max. Text should be in bullet format, not paragraph/prose format. Information should be conveyed in a concise but comprehensible manner. Do not write too much, as this creates a crowded slide which is visually overwhelming. Your meaning will get lost in the slide and your audience will lose interest. Do not write too little as this makes it difficult to understand your intended meaning. You may receive a lower grade because it will not be clear that you understood the concepts. Use photos and diagrams thoughtfully to supplement and advance your presentations, not just as meaningless filler.
Each presentation should have a title slide, an objectives slide and one or more reference slides. The title slide should contain the title of your presentation, your full name, the date and DMM-640. The objectives slide should outline the main bullet points that your presentation will cover. These should be analogous to lessons you expect your intended target audience to learn from your presentations. Your target audience has a basic disaster management background equivalent to your own. You do not need to include background material such as the history of ICS in your presentation.
The number of slides will be assigned for each presentation. The student may go above that number by 2-3 slides, but may not go below the assigned number. The assigned number of slides does NOT INCLUDE the title, objectives or reference slides. It also will not include slides with pictures or diagrams unless those slides substantively advance the presentation. This means that if this were a live presentation you would spend at least one minute discussing that picture/diagram. If you use photos or other multimedia in your presentation and it is not your own work (i.e., you took it from the internet) you MUST reference it on the slide (as opposed to the references slide at the end.
