Here are the clips again if you want to watch them again. Or if you've missed some on your journey of self discovery in the words of Doug Jefferys. Some are not here though. Sorry! But there are some new ones too!
Here's one more that's interesting but you have to check out youtube yourself. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPOGAKpFsas&feature=related
SO, you've watched a whole load of clips on presentations and of presentations. Who would you say is the best presenter? Randy Paunsch? Ed Tate? Doug Jeffrys? Dick Hardt? TJ Walker? Or Microsoft dude? (Should he even be on the list?)
So what have you learnt from all you've watched? In groups, come up with your steps to being an EFFECTIVE PRESENTER using P.R.E.S.E.N.T. Is it the same as your first draft? If it's different, explain the changes made. If it's the same, explain why you've not made any changes.
Having presented in an impromptu speech, how did you evaluate yourself as a presenter? How have your friends and group members evaluated you? How do you feel about the evaluation? Are they justified? Post about your strengths and weaknesses as a presenter based on the feedback you got.
Greetings and welcome to UHL 2312! Please note that this blog is still under construction and will undergo changes from time to time.
UHL 2312 is the course code for TECHNICAL ENGLISH. In this course you will first learn the basics of giving effective presentations; and then move on to the basics of writing technical description and process explanation. At the end of the course, you will be evaluated on all three aspects in your class project, which will be conducted at the end of the semester.
In the meantime, you are encouraged to blog about your learning experience based on the questions in the posts of this blog.
It is our hope that you enjoy this course and all it has to offer.
