 Instructions for Completing Your Assignment


  • Now that you’ve uploaded your EBP Project from Module Four into Blackboard to be graded, it’s time to do the second half of the project in Module Five.
  • You see, it is good for you to have the correct knowledge about something….or to know the right way to practice.  However, it is even better if you share your new knowledge with others!
  • To prepare for this week, I would like you to do two things. 
    • Prepare a Visual aid that covers your EBP from Module Four:
      • Your PICO question
      • What you discovered in your search for information about your PICO question.   Make sure to include information from each of your resources (this means at least 4 facts).
      • What you would recommend for practice (or as a change in practice) based on your research.
    • Be creative and professional with your visual aid for your audience with facts from your presentation.   This is a visual aid of your choosing that should be professional in quality and content. It can be a power point or brochure, for example. Simply typing your information into the discussion board will not meet the criteria for this project, you must provide a creative visual aid with illustrations. Impress your instructor and classmates!  Please include your references for your project on your visual aid.   Remember your coach and peers must be able to open your submission to view and grade it or comment on it (for example, no .zip files or Keynote Presentations from Apple computers). 
  • Your instructor/coach will provide you with feedback regarding your presentation in Blackboard and post your grade in the gradebook.
