Seven Elements of Successful Online Presentations
September 2, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
The Gold Standard for workplace education is when participants successfully use the content of a class to address real challenges. In practical terms, this means participants act, and something changes for the better in their opinion, and/or in the opinions of library bosses, colleagues, employees, vendors, and customers.
Whether you have been immersed in virtual education for the first time during the pandemic or are a seasoned online presenter, you can continue to improve your live and recorded programs. There appears to be a confusing number of conflicting theories about what is “best,” thus, we have created categories for seven elements that make up a successful presentation and offer examples and stories for each element. The elements are:
- Inspiration: Your own passion for the topic: connecting personally with your audience
- Content: Facts, ideas, models, stories, examples, and opinions, with a focus on practicality
- Process: The structure and flow of the presentation to aid understanding and retention
- Aesthetics: How your program looks and sounds
- Technology: The tools and channels for delivery
- Experience: Engagement, practice, and reflection within the presentation: Questions, interactive posts, surveys, polls, quizzes, case studies, discussions
- Assignments: Participants do something with the information during the class or in their workplace: Real life applications, experiments, homework. Testing ideas in the field.
Following this webinar, you will know how to:
• Create your own score card for polishing your online presentations.
• Experiment with new ways to present your content.
• Develop your own standards for how you and your colleagues present information.
• Not feel intimidated when someone tells you that you are creating presentations the “Wrong Way,” meaning not “Their Way."
