Once you've developed learning outcomes for your instruction session or presentation, think about how you can connect technology with those outcomes, your method of presenting, different learning styles, and how you are going to assess if your outcomes are met.
Discussion: When & where to use technology.
What technology (if any) is appropriate for what events? Could we add technology to enhance learning to some events? Where might we lean to heavily on technology?
Discussion: Presenting - the good, the mediocre, and the horrible.
What makes a good presentation? Share an embarrassing story from your past (if you have one). Have you seen any completely terrible presentations?

How does the voice actually function?
How does the body serve to establish a connection?
How do you express your authentic self to reveal and connect with participants?
Public Speaking Reflection
Reflect on our discussion today regarding presentation tools and public speaking techniques. Write down one aspect of presenting where you need to improve, then one way you can address this issue. Take the card and display it in your workspace where you can see it before your next presentation as a reminder of presentation best practices.
