The ability to effectively present information in front of an audience - both face-to-face and online - is a transferable skill that faculty members and future employers often regard as important for students to develop during their college years. Thus, many course assignments require some type of individual or group presentation to an audience of peers and/or others in the university community. Designing and evaluating student presentation assignments, however, can be challenging for faculty members who have not had previous experience or training in public communication. Based on best practices in teaching public speaking courses, this workshop is designed to provide faculty members with strategies for 1) designing meaningful student presentation assignments for face-to-face and online classes, 2) equipping students with basic audience-centered public communication skills, and 3) evaluating student presentation assignments.
