NIT2201 IT Profession and Ethics

NIT2201 IT Profession and Ethics

Semester 1 Block 3 2023 VU Sydney

Guide to Presentation


Value: 40% of final mark

Duration: 10 minutes per student (maximum) Mode of work: Individual.

Instructions about marking

Marks will be based on the oral presentation itself, including the delivery of the presentation, the content covered in the presentation and the slides used by the student. The slides developed by the student will be uploaded to a Presentation slides folder at the VU Collaborate site.

The Delivery criterion will represent a mark reflecting how well a particular student presented. The Content of presentation criterion is for the quality of the actual content in the presentation, and the Slides criterion reflects the quality of the slides.

Presentation instructions

You are to give an oral presentation to the class. The presentation will be about your investigation into an ethical article you have chosen from a list of articles provided to you at VU Collaborate (in the Presentation slides folder), and applying the following Learning Outcomes of this unit to that article:

LO 1. Demonstrate an understanding of codes of ethics in Information and Communication Technology;

LO 3. Critically discuss social, ethical and privacy issues in Information and Communication Technology domains

LO 5. Communicate effectively on a range of social, ethical and privacy issues

You need to work out how 1. relates to the article so that you are able to present about the application of ACS and ACM codes of ethics (covered previously in the unit) to that article. What principles or points of these codes can explain ethical issues or problems in that particular article?

You need to work out how 3. relates to the article so that you are able to present about the social issues and/or ethical issues and/or privacy issues of that article. What are the details about the particular social and/or ethical and/or privacy issues of that article?

Lastly, how do you communicate in an appropriate, relevant and useful way about the social and/or ethical and/or privacy issues of that article (i.e., how do you fulfill 5.)? Since communication here is in the form of an oral presentation to an audience, how will you use the medium of a presentation to communicate effectively about the contents of your PowerPoint slides?

You are provided with a set of articles at the Presentation slides folder at Dropbox. A table contains the titles of the articles and the URLs where they are located. You use the URLs to access and read those articles and work out which one you would like to study and present about. Ensure that the maximum limit of three students has not been reached for that particular article, otherwise you will not be able to present about it and will have to choose another article for which the maximum limit has not yet been reached. The purpose is to have a good spread and coverage of the articles presented in the last week of the block. You will present only one article.

When you have decided which particular article you want to present, return to the table to verify that maximum limit of three students for that article has not been reached. If the maximum limit has not been reached already, email the VU Sydney lecturer (do not email the Unit Convenor as he is not involved in your presentations in Sydney and your email will be ignored) to inform him that this is the article you wish to present. The VU Sydney lecturer will reply to state whether you can proceed with the article (as the maximum limit has not been reached) or to find another article. Please do not provide a set of articles in an order of preference, but only one article that you truly are interested in presenting.

In your email, also state a period of time on Tuesday, 23 May or Wednesday, 24 May, when you prefer to present. Do not state a specific point in time, for instance, 4pm on Tuesday. Instead, you could state that the period of time you prefer to present is between 3:30pm and 9:30pm on that day. The lecturer will do his best to accommodate your preference and eventually allocate your presentation time exactly somewhere within that period. The “Schedule of presentations” section below states the dates and times

when presentations will occur.

Therefore, the two points in your email to the VU Sydney lecturer are:

  1. Article you have chosen
  2. Preferred period of time to present

Content of presentation

You will write a set of slides using Microsoft PowerPoint to cover the three learning outcomes. You will need to work out what you will write in your slides based on your understanding of the article and the application of Learning Outcomes 1 and 3. You will determine the exact set of bullet points you put in your slides. However, a structure for the overall presentation is given below.

You will need to work out what your bullet points will be (if there are any sub-bullet points), what headings you will use, what slide background/layout for the design of the slides, etc.

Do not copy any text, images, etc. from the article to include in your slides. Your slide content should be all written in your own words. If any copying of content from resources were to occur, which it should not, this content will lead to deduction of marks depending on how much has been copied. You should totally avoid insertion of logos or other images of organisations in your slides, as clearly you do not have permission to use them (after all, this is an ethics unit where such a practice goes against the point of this unit). Inclusion of images will not increase marks so there is no need to insert images into slides.

Ensure that the last slide in your set of slides is a references slide. This references slide shows all the references you used, even if it is only the article you used. To format references for your slide, use any predefined, formal referencing system that you wish: APA, Harvard, Oxford, IEEE, ACM, etc. Do not invent your own referencing system but apply such a recognised and accepted system.

You should therefore use the following structure for your set of slides:

  1. Title slide. Show your name, student ID and a title for your presentation. You should think of a title for your presentation that reflects the article. Titles should not be those like “Presentation on article”, etc. as they do not reflect the case you are covering. Do not use the title on the web resource(s) as your presentation title.
  2. Content slide. This will show what you are covering in the presentation. You have seen content slides used in the sessions of the unit – these can be an example to you of what you could show in this slide. Ensure to expand verbally on the points shown in this slide; this is your opportunity to interest us strongly in your presentation.
  3. Slides covering article and LO1. and LO3. You will write as many slides as you need, whilst accounting for the time limit of 10 minutes for your entire presentation. In other words, this number of slides is variable across students – it depends on how many slides you think you need to explain the article and associated matters.
  4. Conclusion slide. This will provide a summary of what you have covered in the presentation.
  5. References slide. As above.

You may refer to the slides from Lecture 10 of ECB1151 Communication and Information Management available at the Presentation slides folder of the unit site.

These slides provide some guidance in working on your presentation. Lecture 10 refers to a resource used for the contents of its lecture slides: “Making Effective Oral Presentations” by E. G. Wertheim. You might like to look at this resource also to help you in working on the contents of your presentation.

In your presentation, do not spend time teaching us what are the codes of ethics. There is no need to introduce us to the ACS code’s six values or the ACM code’s four sections as you have already learnt about them. Going over what is in the codes only takes out time from your presentation’s time limit. Instead, focus on how the codes are applied and connected to the article. State the exact values, clauses or principles of the codes of ethics clearly in your slides and explain how they relate to the article.

Duration of presentation: maximum of 10 minutes per student.


You must upload your slides to the Presentation slides folder at Dropbox. If the slides are not uploaded to this Presentation slides folder by 5pm on Wednesday, 24 May, marks will be deducted. The earlier they are submitted to that folder, the better.

In uploading your submission at the Presentation slides folder at Dropbox, you will need to go to the page with a form (“Submit Files – Presentation slides”). This form contains the “terms and conditions” of the assessment such as declaring that you have not plagiarised, have kept a copy of your work, etc. In uploading, you are agreeing to these “terms and conditions”, which you are being bound by in submitting work for the assessment and receiving a mark for it.

When uploading at VU Collaborate, note that the system:

  • allows you at a couple of points during the submission process to verify what you are about to submit (i.e., you can click on links to check the contents that you are about to submit)
  • automatically sends an email your account to confirm successful submission of the slides.

To help yourself in ensuring that your submission is correct, download the file you submitted via the form, “Submit Files – Presentation slides”, somewhere to check what exactly you submitted.

Note that the time of submission at the VU Collaborate site as recorded in the unit coordinator’s area of VU Collaborate will be used as the official time of submission.

Schedule of presentations

You will be allocated a presentation time in the schedule of presentations. Ensure you have emailed your preference of the period when you would like to present. If you do not email the lecturer about your preference, he will allocate you to a particular time when you will then present. If there are too many preferences from students on one of the two days, the lecturer will have to allocate presentations on the other day to balance the number of presentations over the two days. A schedule of presentations will be provided on VU Collaborate to show when you will give your presentation.

Presentations will take place on:

Tuesday, 23 May and Wednesday, 24 May, starting 3:00pm and finishing by 9:30pm
