The current development must be relevant to the topic of the week and not be older than 6 months. These may be drawn from periodicals (including electronic periodicals) such as the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Business Week, the Economist, the New York Times, etc.
1) As soon as students decide on their current developments, they should post the topic/article/news item on BlackBoard, in the discussion board for current development news items, so that others presenting that week don’t cover the same item; once thus chosen, others cannot cover the same item. This topic/article/news item that you post on the discussion board on BlackBoard will be visible to all other students in class.2) Create a PowerPoint presentation on that news item, and insert your voice into the PowerPoint slides to present, following the instructions here. Save that whole presentation with your voice narration. Your presentation should be approximately 5 minutes.Your presentation should include the following sections:Topic – including source and dateBackground – what is the history of the issue, why is this topic of interest? Recent Developments – what is different from the past, what are they trying to accomplish?Effects – what does the company/organization/interest group expect to happen?Possible Strategies – your recommendations/predictionsAnd, most importantly, how does this fit with the topic of the day, and how can the class learn from it? Most critical is for you to clearly and explicitly state for the class how this fits in with the text and lecture information, for you to make proactive recommendations, and for you to generalize the current development so that the learning points (take-aways) for the class are clear. Please relate the learning points of your current development to the specific points in your assigned readings. You will only develop a good analysis of the current developments AFTER having read all assigned readings for that week, and think critically about how your current development relates to specific points in your assigned readings.
