Teaching with Student Presentations

Bridget Swanson, CTL Graduate Fellow, German

Monday, March 31 | 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: In-class student presentations are a teaching strategy commonly used to increase student engagement, encourage higher order thinking, and evaluate student learning. However, in-class presentations often benefit the presenter more than the audience. In this workshop, we will gauge the value of student presentations and discuss a variety of types of presentations that may offer alternative styles or activities for your classroom. Finally, we will cover concrete strategies that instructors can use to effectively implement in-class presentations in their courses, such as creating productive guidelines that limit the focus and duration of the presentations, encouraging audience participation, and connecting the presented material to larger class activities and discussions.
