MASTER TOPIC: Environmental Economics: Pricing Carbon
- Read the instructions below and create your 10 minute video presentation on your chosen topic. See rubric below for additional guidance on grading. There are many ways to create your presentation video and you do not need to show your face unless you want to. That will be your choice. You can do a slide deck or animation, but at minimum I need to hear your voice clearly speaking on your topic and see some visuals and these two things need to be paired into a video format. Any video under 5 minutes will receive a zero.
- Upload a page with JUST your Hyperlink (using an outside video storage site like Vimeo or youtube) to your finished video to the Canvas folder (for grading) AND post that same hyperlink to our the discussion board in Canvas so that our classmates can view and summarize your video. Do not record straight to PowerPoint since it will be difficult for you to create a video file to upload.
Do not submit your original file to Canvas : simply upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo, or any screencasting site, then copy & paste the URL into a document and submit that URL to turntin.com. You may also simply copy and paste the URL directly into the submission folder in Canvas – either way is fine. Canvas also requires any page have a minimum of 20 words, so in addition to your hyperlink just put some basic info like name, topic, class, etc. to make the system happy that you have 20 words.
- Each student must watch and write a short summary (at least one paragraph long) of each other student’s video and submit this to Canvas by the deadline posted. Hyperlinks to others videos will be found on the Canvas discussion board. You will need to post your own hyperlink there as well. You should have one paragraph per video submitted to the Canvas discussion board.
You will be creating a PowerPoint and video presentation based upon your chosen topic. All presentations must be professional and at the level appropriate for college course.
Your presentation will cover background information and current news/information on the topic. You must scour the peer-reviewed journals and reputable science news/information sources. This is a university level course, make sure that your coverage of the topic is not overly basic. You must try to inform and engage your fellow students about your topic.
Each presentation must be exactly 10 minutes. I will give you a buffer of a minute over or under before I begin deducting points for each minute over or under. Read the grading rubric found at the end of this document carefully to know how to achieve a high score.
You may record your presentation in any creative electronic program and style you wish. Some common screen capture programs include QuickTime http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ (Links to an external site.) And Jing http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html (Links to an external site.) – Get as creative as you want/wish with this project as long as you are keeping professional and appropriate for University.

If you do not have access to the digital equipment necessary to create your presentation (a digital camera or computer with a webcam/microphone), please email me immediately.
At minimum I need to see your presentation slides (PowerPoint or any presentation / slide deck other program is fine) and hear your voice. Whether your face can be seen on camera is up to you. Again, feel free to get as creative as you wish, as long as your presentation is highly professional and at a college level caliber. However, keep in mind that the primary responsibility of your presentation is to relay sound, scientific information about your topic to your audience.

Submit a hyperlink to your presentation to Canvas both in the submission folder and in the discussion thread by the duet date listed in your syllabus. You may submit your presentation up to 5 calendar days late at a penalty of 10 points per day.
