Effective Presentations: Communicating in Health Care Settings. An Offering of Step Ahead: A Partnership for Improved Health Care Communication.
New Mexico State Univ., Las Cruces. Dept. of English.
This course in giving presentations developed especially for hospital employees is designed to be taught onsite and to complement a hospital's other training and staff development efforts. The topical focus is workplace communication. It is designed as an 8-hour course, with four 2-hour sessions. The curriculum guide consists of a list of course goals and informational materials, activities, and exercises for four sessions: good presentations, planning the presentation, polishing the presentation, and actual presentations. The teacher's guide explains the philosophy of the course. It lists course goals (including participant role, instructor role, and evaluation) and offers sample lesson plans. Each lesson plan has a brief narrative description of class activities and goals and a time plan. Each plan assumes a 2-hour class session and team teaching. The teacher's guide also describes how teachers can adapt the course to make it more work-related and more responsive to different audiences. Suggestions for recordkeeping conclude the guide. (YLB)
