New 'Presentation U' Video Tells Students Why They're 'the Ultimate Presentation'

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 25, 2012) — By improving presentation skills across the curriculum, "Presentation U" makes students "the ultimate presentation."

 

This is the message behind a new video produced by Wildcat Student TV, which demonstrates to University of Kentucky students the importance of UK's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). By utlizing the popular "doodling" method, the video tells the story of Presentation U, and why students should care about it.

 

Presentation U is the title of UK's QEP, which is one of 12 core requirements the university takes on to reaffirm its accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).  SACS reaffirmation of accreditation is mandatory for the university. The QEP is being developed to receive SACS' evaluation during spring 2013.

 

Presentation U represents the many different opportunities students will soon have to improve their presentation and communication skills across various platforms. The intention is to improve the student learning experience with a focus on developing integrated oral, written, visual and multimedia communication skills. While many students utilize similar services at UK currently, such as the Writing Center, the Study, the MC3 Lab, eStudio, and the Hub, Presentation U will unite and augment these programs, while also offering a unique service to faculty in developing opportunities in their courses for students to learn these skills.  

 

Additionally, Presentation U continues the commitment of UK Core's Composition and Communication learning outcomes beyond the freshman or sophomore year, working with faculty and staff who choose to institute new communication-based curricula or to formalize programs already in place. 

 

"UKCore does an excellent job of meeting basic communication needs for our incoming students," said Diane Snow, professor in the UK Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology and co-chair of the QEP committee. "Presentation U will 'take it to the next level' through vertical integration of communication skills building in the students' majors, specifically for juniors and seniors."
