Theme: Systemic Challenges

Research Discovery - What are you Curious about?:

Rather than gravitating towards a general topic, try to think of a specific question your team wants to answer. Starting from a small scale and moving outwards from there will help to keep your research and presentation focused and meaningful. Your research for the Integrated Assignment should be current, significant, and have a specific base within the Anatomy & Physiology field.

  • Beginning your research discovery on your favorite news site, reading a newspaper, or even on Facebook are all perfectly acceptable starting points.
  • Alternatively, you may find the following resources helpful:

Research Article for Presentation:

Your article must be a peer-reviewed article from a scientific journal. For any additional resource, please use a critical eye to ensure their authenticity, credibility, and validity.

Presentation Details & Submission:

  • Create a PowerPoint presentation following the guidelines listed below (scroll down this page)
    • Every team member is expected to present information verbally
    • COMM students: make sure to incorporate any standards introduced by your COMM instructor to practice "good" presenting

b. Briefly cover the methods utilize
c. Highlight the results of the article, and whether they supported your initial assumptions

5. Future Directions of the Team's Research
