Lesson 11 - Presenting Your Siting Project


An Overview of Lesson 11

Many times during your working career, you will be asked to make presentations before your peers, to the management, and to the public. The ability to communicate effectively, both verbally and visually, is something sought after by industry today. Those employees who can present information in a clear, concise, and professional manner generally succeed in the business world. This lesson will give you the opportunity to develop these skills by creating a presentation of your siting process and your public participation plan from lessons 9 and 10.

What will we learn in Lesson 11?

Your goal in this lesson is to take what you have developed in Lessons 9 and 10 and put that information into a presentation package that is suitable for presentation to management and to the public.

By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

  • create a presentation that incorporates your transmission site plan, public participation plan, final route selection and an explanation of why you chose your particular route.

What is due for Lesson 11?

This lesson will take us one week to complete. Please refer to the Calendar for specific time frames and due dates. Specific directions for the assignment below can be found in this lesson.

  • Prepare a brief (10-12 minutes), narrated PowerPoint presentation that explains your site selection process and your public participation plan.
