Assignment 2 – Creating a Multimedia Enhanced Student Activity

Assignment 1 – The Blueprint of the Profession



In 2015, Canadian Society of Respiratory Therapist produced a comprehensive document titled “Blueprint for the Profession” which contains nine foundational pillars that provide a framework in which future policy directions for the profession can be developed such that they remain aligned with the health needs of the Canadian population.  These nine foundational pillars can also be seen as the core components of a practicing Respiratory Therapist and their understanding and continued implementation is critical to good practice. 


  • Students will demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of one of the nine pillars of the profession and convey this understanding to classmates in the form of a multimedia presentation.
  • Students will demonstrate effective communication skills both within their group and in presenting the material in a concise and cohesive manner to their classmates.
  • Students will engage in respectful and thoughtful discussion and reflection about their colleagues’ presentations.

  • Create a group of 3-4 students and sign up to present one of the nine pillars. Please note that only one group may present each pillar.  Use the sign up sheet located here to sign your group up to for your chosen pillar.
  • In your multimedia presentation, explain what that pillar means for the respiratory therapist, the public, the healthcare system as well as how you can incorporate this pillar into your future practice.
  • In addition to your multimedia presentation, pose 2-3 discussion questions or discussion points to your classmates with regards to the pillar you presented to engage them in thoughtful reflection and discussion.

Multimedia Requirements

  • Must include at least two of the following media forms: video, audio, text or pictures
  • Must be no longer than 5 minutes in duration with an addition 5 minutes allotted for discussion
  • Multimedia must be presented easily using classroom equipment
  • Your multimedia may be as simple or as complex as you’d like as the focus should be on the content and quality of your message, not the technical complexity of your multimedia.

 The below are some ideas to get you started if you are unfamiliar with the creation of media.  You are more than welcome to create and use media is not listed and generate your own ideas about the content and format of your presentation.

Multimedia Ideas/Formats

  • Digital Storytelling in Healthcare
  • PechaKucha 20×20
    • Show 20 pictures for only 20 seconds with accompanying narration
      • Note: this would result in a presentation time of over 6 minutes so please feel free to use this concept but alter it to fit the time requirements
  • 5×5
    • 5 video clips of 5 seconds each that tell your story in 25 seconds
      • Note: this may be too constraining for the material that you’re trying to present but the concept is interesting

    Hi Kelly,
    I think your assignment looks great! I almost get the sense that even I could do it 😉

    I like the format you followed and how you modeled and then incorporated ideas from this course. I often get overwhelmed when lesson planning and like to follow a structure as well to make sure that I’ve planned properly. Your pedagogical rationale aligns and the examples you provide are interesting. It’s neat to see a learning opportunity created in education for a field other than elementary or high school. I hope it goes well for you!
