Presentation 1 (Allen Davenport)

Teaching Presentation Skills to Nurture Success

     Speaking in front of a group is something that all of us are called upon to do at some point in our lives, whether it is in academic, professional or social settings. In this sense, presentation skills are life skills. Yet, ‘giving a presentation’ is also on most people’s top-ten fear list. This isn’t surprising--standing in front of an audience can be a nerve-racking experience with the dreaded potential of public humiliation. Moreover, even for native speakers, effective presentations involve a complex combination of linguistic, organizational and non-verbal performance skills that differ in some important respects from ‘normal conversation’. However, for non-native, non-fluent speakers, when faced with giving a presentation in English, the task can seem not just difficult, but overwhelming. How then can teachers provide students with the tools they need to get through it successfully?

     In this session, we will first consider some of the essential differences between presenting and conversing, targeting the specific skills that are involved in speaking to an audience. Then, we will focus on demonstrating a process approach to teaching presentation skills that clearly guides students step-by-step through the complete cycle of brainstorming-planning-drafting-presenting-evaluating stages. Finally, we will be able to take a wider view by looking at how the process lesson elements and various presentation genres can fit into the overall context of a coherent presentation skills course.


Presentation 2 (Gavin J Biggs)

Unlocking Critical Thinking: Guidance and Motivation to Prepare and Present

     The debate on what exactly critical thinking is and how to engage students effectively is constantly changing. Simply put, understanding and using general English is not enough for academic endeavours. Students require a strong basis in academic vocabulary, professional skills for spoken presentations as well as a well-rounded education in general knowledge to even begin to compete for places at university or a graduate job. However, we do not want our students to just be able to compete – we want them to gain skills that will benefit them for life and take them beyond more than exam scores and navigating a language. In this talk we will look through the research from Cambridge University Press, study how the clearly scaffolded presentation of information and activities is key to success and finally how combining skills and knowledge can result in confident and professional presentations on a range of general and academic topics. In addition, we will see how engaging students with video, motivating students to understand academic skills within a strong pedagogic structure are all key tools in providing the highest level of preparation for students in an increasingly competitive world.
