Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+?

Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+? | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Most colleges and business schools use a Presentation Rubric to evaluate their students. Funny thing is, they’re not usually that open about sharing it with their students (as if that would do any harm!)

Well, we don’t believe in shutting down information. Quite the contrary: I think the best way to practice your speech is to know exactly what is being tested!

A great example of a presentation rubric with trait and score suggestions.

In praise of PowerPoint

In praise of PowerPoint | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Philip Moriarty stands up for the much-maligned presentation tool.

"Both students and academics regularly bemoan “death by PowerPoint”, as a glance at Times Higher Education’s archives will show. But PowerPoint is a presentational tool. Nothing more, nothing less. If students are finding it difficult to engage with the material that we’re discussing and explaining, then it’s rather a cop-out to blame that on the technology."
