Preparing the assignment

Follow these guidelines when completing this assignment. Speak with your faculty member if you have questions.

1) For this team project, students will be assigned by faculty into teams of three to five individuals depending upon

class size.

a. Teams will receive a project grade based on assessment by the project rubric, which will then be applied to each

individual’s grade for the project minus points for lack of participation in the development or presentation of the



b. The team leader will make all dropbox submissions for the course so that the:

• TURNITIN similarity index will not pick up inadvertent self‐plagiarism from another team member’s


• Course faculty will have only one submission to review and grade.

2) Prepare a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes between 25‐30 slides, excluding the title and reference


a. Speaker Notes

• Outline and “script” the presentation for online students.

o Online students’ speaker notes should include the name of the student who researched and presented

the slide information.

o Campus students follow the guidelines of your course instructor.

b. Scholarly writing and APA guidelines should be followed as applicable to PowerPoint slides.

c. Cite sources in APA format in the applicable slides and include the APA formatted reference in your reference

list slide(s) ‐ minimum 6 references.

d. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation apply even in bullet points and speaker slides (e.g., quotation marks, italics,

verb tense, etc.). Assignment 4: Simulation Training in Education

e. Copyright and plagiarism guidelines apply.

3) Each team will be assigned a healthcare information systems technology (e.g., Computerized Physician Order Entry,

Electronic Health Record, Electronic Medical Record, etc.) by the course instructor. For that technology, include the

following discussions in the presentation:

a. Introduction of Technology and Team – 20 points/ 8%

• Title slide identifies the assigned technology.

• Title slide introduces team members.
