PUN620 Assessment 1 Presentation
Assessment 1 – Details for your Presentation
Both internal and external students should now be assigned to a group that is allocated an emerging or unsolved big picture environmental health challenge that has caused or is potentially causing impacts at a local level.
Group members will communicate on line and in class to discuss the challenge and consider and investigate the different ways that it could impact on human health. The group will then be responsible for selecting a range of case studies that demonstrate the different types of settings and circumstances where it was (or is currently being) experienced. The quality of the Group’s case study selection will contribute 5 marks (15%) to each group members’ grade with the aim of “selecting an exceptional range of case studies, which cover a diversity of situations and provide an exceptional learning opportunity for your colleagues about the depth and breadth of your Group’s topic”. Evidence of contribution will be determined by attendance in class during the Group work session and/or on line postings within your specific group. PUN620 Assessment 1 Presentation
These presentations will be in the form of talking/audio powerpoints and uploaded to a designated youtube channel as part of the whole class learning resources. Instructions will be provided.
While the group work is critical for identifying and assigning the different aspects of the challenge that need to be covered, each student will work individually to create an independent contribution to the whole.
Each group member will be required to prepare an 8-10 minute audio powerpoint investigating one circumstance as a case study (20 marks, or 70% of the grade). Students can choose to use either an environmental health hazard pathway or a health impact assessment framework as an approach to communicate and critically analyse the issue. All students will need to consider appropriate solutions that use an interdisciplinary approach and discuss relevant principles of environmental health and sustainable development associated with the challenge, at a global or local level as relevant.

An electronic copy of your powerpoint presentation slides (without the audio component) must be submitted via Turnitin.
Each student will also be required to provide constructive feedback to a student’s presentation in another group (5 marks, 15% of the grade).
The marking criteria for this assessment is available on the Assessment 1 tab in Blackboard. Please examine and adhere to these criteria to ensure you are covering the requirements of the Assessment.
Recorded presentations must be submitted by 9PM on Tuesday April 6, 2018. Your constructive feedback to your identified student is due by the end of the week when the material is being covered (see Unit outline).
Updated From your Unit Outline
|Your task is:||You will work in a group to explore a major global environmental health challenge that has caused or is potentially causing impacts at a local level.
The group will identify a range of specific events or circumstances that can be examined as a case study for this assessment.
Each member of the group will then be responsible for preparing an 8-10 minute recorded presentation, which describes and critically analyses the environmental/ecological health issues involved (as relevant to the Group’s environmental challenge) in one of these specific circumstances as a case study. The case study analysis should be structured according to the Environmental Health Hazard Pathway OR appropriate parts of the Health Impact Assessment framework.
All students will need to consider appropriate solutions that use an interdisciplinary approach and discuss relevant principles of environmental health and sustainable development associated with the challenge, at a global or local level as relevant.
These presentations will be made available to the whole class as part of their learning resources. An electronic copy of the audio presentation must be submitted via Turnitin. Please make sure you have a slide containing the references you used in preparing your case study presentation.
The group work is critical for identifying case studies illustrating the different aspects of the challenge that need to be covered (5% of the mark), but each student will work individually to create an independent contribution to the whole (20% of the mark).
Each student will also be required to provide brief but constructive feedback to a student’s presentation in another group (5% of the mark).
Additional details will be provided, instructions on how to record and post your presentation will be provided and class time/collaborate session time will be dedicated to ensuring clarity about this assessment.
