PEN: Designing Learning Experiences for Peers.
Vincent, Lisa; Barltrop, Jenny
Peer presentations are a common way of sharing experience and expertise. But while most teachers are comfortable and confident in a classroom environment, the task of presenting to their peers may be formidable, and one for which they are ill prepared. Giving a peer presentation can help a teacher build his/her professional reputation, develop skills in adult education, and even increase prospects for career advancement. This PEN digest provides practical guidance aimed at supporting teachers and others who have the task of presenting to an adult audience. The digest first highlights four ideas to help a presenter cater to an adult audience: (1) encourage autonomy; (2) encourage sharing of ideas and experiences; (3) encourage participation; and (4) support application. It also provides a table which considers the three main ways people receive information--visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. The main part of the digest focuses on planning and designing a presentation for adults and gives specific tips on running a presentation. (NKA)
