Gain comfort speaking about and defending their work and code using correct technical vocabulary
Practice speaking in front of a group
Build the skill of storytelling by presenting a compelling story about themselves and their work
Students will prepare a 5 minute slide presentation to give to M3 Instructors.
The slide presentation should address the following questions:
What was your biggest achievement of the module?
What provided you with the most struggle? What did you learn from that struggle?
What have you done this inning that sets you apart from your peers?
How did your Mod 3 experience impact what you wanted to be doing after Turing? How did it reframe what you learned in previous modules?
What is the most important skill or lesson that you will take from Turing into your next job?
The presentation should not be a series of slides that directly answers each of these questions with bullet points, but instead should:
Follow a narrative format -- this is an opportunity to fine tune your story and how you speak about your work. Slides should flow naturally from one to the next.
Include images and graphics to illustrate the concepts you plan to discuss. These may include screenshots/animated gifs of an application you created, snippets of code from your projects, diagrams of interesting concepts/structures that you used in your project(s).
Students are not required to submit any documents but instead should be prepared to give their presentation to their instructors and answer follow up questions
