Topic OutlineOn completion of this subject, the student will be able to:
1. Use a Design Template and Text Slide Layout to Create a Presentation
Modes of InstructionFive 50-minute periods will be allocated to teacher-directed classes that are scheduled in a networked microcomputer room. Overhead demonstrations and lecture/discussion will be used by the teacher to introduce various topics, to reinforce creative problem-solving techniques, and to provide feedback of a general nature. Students will then proceed to work on assigned tasks at their own pace within a specified time frame.
The teacher will observe, question, guide and assist students during scheduled sessions. Discovery-learning techniques will be used wherever appropriate. Critical thinking, reasoning, and planning skills will be stressed.
Students will be required to complete unfinished scheduled-session assignments outside of class time. Students will be encouraged to practice their newly learned skills and preview new material. Significant out-of-class reading and planning will be required as preparation for in-class sessions.

Cheating and PlagiarismStudents at Seneca College are expected to be honest and forthright in their academic endeavours. When students cheat on an examination, steal the words or ideas of another, or falsify their research results, it corrupts the learning process. A Seneca College diploma, degree, or certificate signifies to society mastery of a set of defined learning outcomes in a designated field of study. If academic credit is obtained dishonestly, the value of every graduate's diploma in the field of study is diminished, as is the reputation of the college as a whole. For further information, refer to the policies section of the Seneca College student handbook or to the following website: www.senecac.on.ca/handbook, and click on the letter 'C'.
Penalties for Cheating and PlagiarismThe penalty for a first offence is a grade of '0' on the assignment or examination. The penalty for a second offence is immediate expulsion for the remainder of that semester, or longer, depending on the circumstances.
