  • Your exam will be a brief 5 minute (please time yourself in advance) presentation on your ePort and your final research essay.  You will project your ePort, explain its strengths and choose one or two posts to highlight. Then you will click on your research essay, explain its focus, and talk about your findings. Finally, you will summarize your three main takeaways from #opencomp: what will you carry forward from this course into your future work?  You may bring notecards to assist you in this presentation, but you may not read word for word. You will be graded on your enthusiasm, insight, organization, clarity, and visual effects of your presentation.
