We will identify tools to use in evaluating the potential, progress and impact of nonprofits and change by studying specific organizations and change makers throughout history. We will discuss moral and ethical questions that face non-profits, social enterprises and social entrepreneurs and explore motivation, approach and best practices as it applies to social change makers. These discussions will mold our evaluation and exploration of the skill set necessary to implement one's passion for social change into one's future.

HONORS SEMINAR I

This section of the Honors Seminar will meet every other week beginning on 1/25 The first semester of the Honors Seminar is designed to accomplish three complementary goals. The seminar provides an opportunity for sophomore honors students to continue to build their community by meeting every other week to discuss an important issue from the perspectives of a number of different disciplines. These discussions will be led by various members of the Babson faculty and will include reference to some preliminary research done by students prior to the class. Secondly, the seminar will expose students to a wide variety of research methodologies and protocols in the contexts of these important issues, so students may become familiar with the processes they will undertake in completing their Honors Projects in their junior and senior years. Thirdly, students will meet a number of different members of the Babson faculty who may serve as important resources in future semesters. The Honors Seminar is a requirement for all students in the Honors Program, will be graded, and carries one credit for the semester. A second Honors Seminar semester must be taken in either the fall or spring of the student's junior year. Prerequisite: Permission by: Instructor Permission

SEN1201 - DESIGNING PRES TO TELL POWERFUL STORIES

DESIGNING PRES TO TELL POWERFUL STORIES

SEN1201: Designing Presentations to Tell Powerful Stories (Senior Instructor: Amy Malinowski) It is approximated that there are more than 30 million PowerPoint presentations made each day. That is a lot of time and resources spent presentingespecially if much of that time is wasted on really awful presentations. To communicate effectively, you first have to identify the audience, then organize a coherent narrative, and finally create and deliver that narrative powerfully both orally and visually. This creative process is often something we make no time for but is crucial if we want to design a presentation that will really resonate. In this course, students will learn the process and technical skills needed to design truly great presentations
