Practice presentations group
For University of Waikato students wishing to improve their presentation
confidence and/or skills. This is not a course but a group of students who
meet fortnightly to develop their presentation skills at their own pace.
Most sessions, of 1hr duration, contain:
· *1-minute speeches*
o Practice at standing in front of an audience (great for those less
o Get you thinking on your feet. Producing a structured speech in 1-min
can be quite a challenge.
· *Longer speeches (5-10 min)*
o You may use PowerPoint, and or other visual/technical aids.
Sometimes other activities (whole sessions only) include:
· Debating, role play, poster, PowerPoint, etc.
What was done well and also what needs more work will be discussed. The aim
is for the speaker to feel encouraged and positive about the speech they
have just given, but also to know where they can improve.
Students may speak on any topic. For the 1-min speeches, students can speak
on the topic presented for that session, or choose something they are more
This is an *open group*. Students may turn up to any session.
*When:* 4:10pm to 5:00pm
*Next session dates:* 29/04/2010, 13/05/2010 and 27/05/2010.
