How to Choose the Best Profesional Development Presentation Topic for Your Audience

Ask the Tech Coach Episode 25

In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Jeff and Nick discuss how Tech Coaches can impress not just one teacher but a faculty by choosing and pulling off the perfect faculty meeting presentation.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • 3 Things that Make a Memorable Presentation
    • Well Organized … Well Prepared … Well Thought out
  • Have a Great Plan A but always have a plan B
    • Always check your dongles
    • Never rely on Technology
    • Be prepared to lecture if needed
  • Know your audience
    • Audience Participation
    • Keep them awake … keep them busy
    • Don’t bore them with words on your slides
    • Your cat videos aren’t winners in 2019 … try something new
  • Know when to be innovative and when to leave innovation behind
    • Provides something that can be put into use the very next day
    • Templates are a great give away
    • Provide lesson plans that they can take home and mold to their needs
    • Share real-world examples during your presentation to get them thinking
    • End not with a Q&A but with a roundtable discussion
