References to the course literature are optional; however, you must demonstrate familiarity with the terminology and best practices therein and provide evidence of self-reflection, critical thinking, and understanding of key concepts. Each main point must be sufficiently developed given the time limit. The main points must be logically connected with effective transitions and a progression of ideas throughout. Your presentation must include the following main points:
1. Introduction Introduce yourself and disclose key facts about your meeting, including date, time, duration, location, setting and set-up, number of participants, and whether a co-leader was present. Briefly (in one or two sentences) reiterate the nature and purpose of the group and your prior role and involvement. If the actual meeting and its participants diverted from your proposal, explain why.
Group Dynamics, Content, and Process Describe the progression of the meeting from beginning to end paying attention to content, process, and group dynamics. What was the group’s level of engagement and participation, and what different leadership techniques did you utilize?
Self-Assessment Reflect on your facilitation and evaluate your performance, providing specific examples from the meeting. What were the main challenges you encountered? What do you feel you did well and what do you think you should have handled differently?
Conclusion and Application Briefly summarize the highlights of your experience and your most important takeaways. How will you apply what you learned to future group leadership? In what areas do you need to enhance your group skills? End with a concluding thought.
