Train the Technology Trainer: Creating Successful Presentations

277

Published on


Does the idea of training 10, 20, 30 people on the latest technology make your palms sweat and heart race?

In libraries, we train users everyday on a myriad of technologies - but training a group of people on a technology is greatly different than the one-one-one assistance we typically provide at the library. The logistics, audience and our own presentation skills can make or break any workshop.

During this course, we will explore:
Creating a logistics pre-training checklist to help ensure you and the location are ready to go
Writing course descriptions, titles and agendas to help set up realistic expectations from attendees
Managing the unexpected - from tech issues to problem participants
Developing basic presentation skills and techniques for successful public speaking

  • Rows can be circular, semi-circular, straight, or angled toward the focal point. Offset each row so that attendees don’t have to look over the person in front of them (this will increase the space required). If using banquet type chairs, space them 3” to 6” apart as these chairs are normally narrower than most people’s bodies. If you have the space, allow for 24” between rows to allow attendees easy movement in and out of the row.
  • This layout style is often used for Board of Directors meetings, committee meetings, or discussion groups where there is a speaker, audio-visual PR is the most efficient set-up when the attendees will act as an audience. This set-up is not recommended for food events or if note taking is required.
  • A minimum of 2’ of table space is required per attendee. Skirt the inside of the “U” if attendees are being seated only on the outside. Avoid the “U” set-up for groups greater than 25, as the sides of the “U” become too long and may not promote participation from all attendees.
  • Set-up hints Tables that extend beyond the stage or podium should be angled toward the speaker. Allow for approximately 2’ of space per person at each table. (More space may be required depending on the amount of materials).Minimum space between tables is 3’. Provide 3½’ if space allows, for ease of movement in and out of rows.
