Discussion Leaders – Group 2

Presentation Discussion

  • Discussion Groups 1&2 : gather and discuss challenges of following PresentationZen style and process
  • Discussion Groups 3,4,5 : gather and discuss reaction to two weeks of presentations – what do you like, not like, why
  • In pairs – head over to Slideshare and check out at least three presentations: a recommended one plus two you search for. What do you like, not like and why


NOTES on annotated bibliographies

  • All scholarly sources need to be linked to their abstract pages inside the UW Lib firewall
  • If there is a DOI, it’s the last thing on the citation; turn it into the hyperlink
  • If there is no DOI, you must also publish the URL of the scholarly article
  • Any URL that is pasted into your online citation should be clickable, turned into a link
  • Generally, do not link to a PDF. Exceptions – non-database resources, no HTML page specific to the article

Exemplary Posts

Suggestion 1: practice write descriptive headlines (not something like week 6 reading). Article title is fine if you aren’t feeling creative.

Suggestion 2: get friendly with the “more” button

Use the "MORE" button to make your home page more appealing!
