Sharing your editing skills with other adult learners can be rewarding and even a creative exercise as you plan how to organize and deliver your material. Yet it can also be intimidating, especially without a plan for how to convey your material in a way that’s engaging and outcomes driven. In this webinar, I share insights from formal adult learning training plus my 15+ years of teaching writing courses in college and university settings. Whether you’re planning to give a talk, do a formal seminar or course, or just teach a client, this webinar can help you think through your material and gain confidence as a presenter.

In this webinar, you’ll learn: 

  • how to organize your material with the learner in mind
  • different style and approaches to presenting material
  • how to sequence your presentation both online and in-person, including audience interaction
  • how to integrate multimedia effectively
