Presentation Anxiety Analysis: Comparing Face-to-Face Presentations and Webinars
Campbell, Scott
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v7 Jan 2015
This study is an exploration in the changing landscape of how people deliver presentations in an attempt to determine the advantages and disadvantages of both forms. The study focused on key differences of student expectations and experiences delivering a presentation to an audience in the same location (face-to-face) compared to a presentation delivered online to an audience they could not see or hear. The subjects were students that volunteered to be part of the study. There were a total of 50 students used in 3 different classes. Each student delivered two presentations. The students were given 4 surveys to complete during the study. Both presentations had a pre and post assessment. The end result of the surveys provided compelling information about student expectations and experiences, particularly in regards to anxiety levels. A literature review regarding anxiety associated with public address and the pros and cons of integrating technology into education was conducted. The literature review and student responses to the surveys provided evidence in order make recommendations to educators and to help educators make a more informed decision about the advantages and disadvantages of using either method of delivery.
