Our group storyboard project Future of Healthcare: Going Green in Heatlh Care

Getting Started

Group Storyboard Project

Students will work together in teams to research a healthcare trend topic. Each student is responsible for gathering information pertinent to the topic and incorporating their ideas along with their team members into a research paper.

    • The project should clearly demonstrate the proper research and organization of the material. APA format should be followed throughout the project’s paper. At least one but no more than three tables, graphs, or illustrations must be included in each of the seven steps in your paper to represent your topic.
    • Each paper should be revised, proofread, and corrected before being submitted for grading.
    • Students must submit final project papers by the due date.
    • All students receive the same grade for the project unless extenuating issues are presented (i.e. a member fails to participate or participates minimally).
    • Observe the deadline as noted in your course schedule. Failure to submit the project on time will result in a 10% deduction of the grade for the assignment for each day it is late. Late submissions will be accepted up to four days after the deadline. Students failing to submit their project prior to this date will receive a score of zero.
    • All papers will be evaluated for originality of content using Turnitin.com®. Please refer to www.plagiarism.org for more information on how to avoid plagiarism. If any portion of work submitted by a student is found to be plagiarized, all team members will receive a score of zero for that assignment and may be recommended for program dismissal.
