The long and winding road of developing criteria for assessing presentations

  • Session A

Presenter(s): Olaf Lenders

Giving presentations is one of the core skills our students will need in their future careers. That’s why I integrate presentation skills in all of my classes. Over the past 20 years, I have done presentation skills with a wide range of students, from civil to sustainable engineering, from computer to social sciences. Almost as many versions of my assessment sheet have seen the light of day. From brief to extensive and all the way back again. In this workshop, I would like to share and discuss with you the rationales behind the different stages of evolution of my criteria for assessing student presentations.
