Improving Presentations through Productive Feedback
Date & Time
Registration Closed / Past Event
As graduate students, we are often asked to offer feedback on our colleagues’ presentation materials and/or presentations. Saying “good job” is too general and not particularly helpful! How can we be specific, while being helpful, respectful and constructive? What are the specific areas we can focus on to help others (and ourselves) create effective presentations?
In this workshop, we help you build your skills as a reviewer of presentations. You will be able to apply these skills to enhancing your own presentations.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Conduct an observation that attends to key components of presentation and reviewee feedback priorities
- Provide constructive feedback (on materials and presentation) for the person being reviewed
- Review presentation material and co-create an action plan with the reviewee
The skills you build as a reviewer can also be applied for self-assessment of your presentations and/or presentation materials.
