It’s great to learn from your mistakes – it’s easier to learn from other people’s.

Watch the following video clip.  After the first presentation, pause the video when the teacher asks the audience for feedback. (1min 50 sec) List some improvements you think the presenter could make before his next presentation. Then press play and see how many you get right. 

Presenting is like any skill, the more you practice it, the better you will be. Here is your chance to put the skills you have learned into action.

Your presentation
Record yourself doing a 3 minute presentation.

Here’s some guidelines:

  • Make sure your camera is steady, not held in hands. Use a tripod if you can.
  • You can sit or stand but video from the waist up to show your body language.
  • Use limited visuals but be present on screen at all times.
  • Consider your communication skills. Use a clear voice and engage  your audience.
  • Think of this video as a professional presentation, that you would submit to a potential employer.

Watch it back and try to see it as if you are watching it for the first time (or better yet, ask a friend or family member to watch it for you and give you feedback).

Consider things like:

  • Did you get your message across clearly?
  • How was your body language?
  • What did you do well?
  • What could you do better?

Review what knowledge you have gained by answering these 3 questions. We are not recording your responses – it’s just for your own learning.
