I presented the course evaluations building block at ARBug this year. I did this to practice for my upcoming presetation at BbWorld DevCon 12. The presentation was geared towards system admins but there were only 3 system admins out of the 12 people that showed up to hear me talk so the audience wasn’t really right. Below is the prezi I used, I may not use this for DevCon… as it was a little more liberal in nature.
- One professor told me that I am a fun presenter but course evaluations are boring, so it’s hard to be overly excited about them.
- I learned that I should put my email address/contact information on my slides so people will know how to contact me later.
- I should slow down and gauge the audience more. Talk less, look more. It’s easy for me to forget this, and ramble on about details…
- I need to tell people up front about when to ask questions (so they aren’t confused).
- Tell people up front that this is a custom solution and not owned by Blackboard.
- Too much information, who really cares about the past CE8 process? Maybe leave this out.
All in all, it was fun to present. Glad I did it. I think if I present next year, I’ll pick a different topic on something instructional designers/teachers are actually interested in.
