Web resource for audience adaptation

Juraj Holub of Sli.do, writing for the blog at Prezi.com, offers “8 Ways to Make Your Presentation More Interactive.”

While not all of the advice might be appropriate for a classroom speech (like #8, bring on another speaker) there is a lot of great advice here, both for student speakers and for instructors seeking to make class more engaging. For students, I would emphasize the points about asking questions, using videos, giving the audience mental breaks, and telling stories.

In addition, at the end is a link to the next post in the series “How to Deal with an Unresponsive Audience” that also has some nice advice.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
