Creating Alternative Products

Sometimes the final product of research will include an oral or visual component as well as the written paper.  At other times, the final product will simply be an oral presentation or visual product.  These may include digital media, timelines, 3D art, posters, newspapers, mixed media, web page, poems, photographic collages and videos.  This module will provide tips to follow when presenting your research findings orally, visually or both.
