When speaking to a large group, have you ever caught members of your audience, or even yourself, starting to nod off? Large group teaching (a.k.a. lecturing) does not have to be so sedating. This workshop provides faculty with the techniques and skills needed to prepare and deliver stimulating and effective presentations.

Advance Preparation:
Participants must come prepared with a ten-minute presentation, either new or old, to deliver in front of a small group during the workshop.

The first half of the workshop will focus on practical tips for improving professional presentations, including:

Introducing the topic and gaining audience attention.
Organizing the presentation effectively.
Discuss options for using new and old technology in the large group setting.
Actively involving participants and motivating learning.
Concluding the presentation in a powerful manner.

During the second half of the workshop, participants will implement workshop suggestions in a micro-teaching situation that involves giving and receiving feedback.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

Outline approaches to the planning and delivery of dynamic presentations.
Describe 3-4 techniques for engaging learners.
Provide constructive feedback to a colleague about their presentation.
Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills.
