Seven Elements of Successful Online Presentations - Webinar (02/16/21)

Create your own score card for polishing
your online presentations!

The Gold Standard for workplace education is when participants successfully use the content of a class to address real challenges and otherwise apply it outside the classroom.

In practical terms, this means participants act, and something changes for the better in their opinion, and/or in the opinions of library bosses, colleagues, employees, vendors, and customers. The Gold Standard for academic subjects is the same but with goals related to research and professional applications. In both examples learning should be focused on more than acing a test.

Whether you have been immersed in virtual education for the first time or are a seasoned online presenter, you can continue to improve your live and recorded programs. Because there appears to be a confusing number of conflicting theories about what is “best”, we have created categories for seven elements that make up a successful presentation and offer examples and stories for each element.  The goal? Finding multiple "better” ways to achieve the Gold Standard.

The elements are:

  1. Inspiration: Your own passion for the topic: connecting personally with your audience
  2. Content: Facts, ideas, models, stories, examples, and opinions, with a focus on practicality
  3. Process: The structure and flow of the presentation to aid understanding and retention
  4. Aesthetics: How your program looks and sounds
  5. Technology: The tools and channels for delivery
  6. Experience: Engagement, practice, and reflection within the presentation (Questions, interactive posts, surveys, polls, quizzes, case studies, discussions).
  7. Assignments: Participants do something with the information during the class or in their workplace:  Real life applications, experiements, homework. Testing ideas in the field.
