The COERSEA Model for Interactive Presentations
Koppi, Tony; Pearson, Elaine
Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, v2 n2 Article 5 2005
A commonly accepted theoretical paradigm in the research and practice of effective learning and teaching is constructivist. Researchers and practitioners in the higher education community attend educational technology focused conferences to share their findings, seek feedback and collaboration, or challenge. Although researchers may espouse constructivist methods in their learning designs, this model is not adopted in their presentations. Often a more traditional transmission approach is used with the presenter inflicting many content heavy slides on an increasingly passive audience. The COERSEA model (context, outcomes, engagement, resources, support, evaluation, alignment) comprises seven principles that can be applied to the design of any presentation be it a lecture, seminar or conference paper. The model compliments current trends in online learning design and represents a constructivist approach to presentations that engages participants in a shared learning experience. The model has been successfully applied to a number of topics and contexts at conferences, seminars and workshops.
