NOTE: Not-for-profits, government and NGO organizations cannot be considered for this assignment.
You will need to acknowledge where the conceptual and audio-visual material you use in the presentation comes from through referencing according to the UniSA version of the Harvard Guide.
The maximum length of your presentation is 3 minutes +/- 10%.
Simple presentations such as speaking to the webcam and a succession of stills with commentary are acceptable, as are more complex submissions. Students who do not have access to facilities which would allow them to prepare such an audio-visual presentation should approach their tutor before the end of week 3 to make alternative arrangements. The alternative arrangement will most likely be the production of a full-page newspaper advertisement or poster, A3 size.
REMEMBER always check your Course Outline as it outlines the requirements for each assignment plus assessment details and marking criteria.
