Presenters' Forum Overview

The Presenters' Forum is a workshop designed to support all those who wants to develop their skills in making effective presentations; educators, as well as leaders in any field who regularly present to others, will benefit from the Forum. The Forum follows a constructivist-based design and teachers "best practices" of presenting. Participants will engage in a highly interactive seminar throughout the Forum.

What is Presenting?

To present is to teach. A presenter's goals are to extend and enrich knowledge, skills, or attitudes and to help these to be applied in people's work. A presenter may adopt many stances (e.g., expert, colleague, novice, friend) and use many strategies of presentation (e.g., lecture, cooperative learning, study groups). Premier presenters are guided by clarity of instructional outcomes and the continual assessment of goal achievement.

What is the Structure of the Forum?

The Forum can be attended by anyone wanting to refine his/her presentation skills.
