Teaching presentation skills in a digital age.

A workshop with Elena Matveeva

The art of public speaking has existed for a long time and has always been one of the most important things to master. Before the introduction of computers and the Internet the focus on public speaking was mainly on the speaker. Charisma, power of persuasion, ability to get the message across and to produce an impression were some of the most important characteristics of a good speaker. We would argue that nowadays not much of it has changed. Nevertheless, it can't be denied that the rapid development of technology has had its influence on making presentations as well. In this workshop we will explore how to use Internet resources to make the process of teaching presentation skills easier and more efficient.
