Public Speaking and Presentation Skills

Tuesday, July 23 | 2:30PM–3:30PM MT | Grand Ballroom B, second level
Session Type: General Session

As higher education technology professionals, we face a wide variety of diverse issues as we support the teaching and learning, research, and service missions of our institutions. Using an “unconference” format, personalized presentations, and conversations we'll address many of these relevant issues and offer opportunities to practice those public speaking and presentation skills so vital to being an effective manager on campus.

Session Outcomes:
  • Manage an effective presentation and subsequent group discussion by effectively framing and describing an issue and moderating participants’ responses to your presentation
  • Engage with other participants on a diverse range of issues facing higher education IT
  • Evaluate presentation methods and skills
