Lecturing and large group presentations are essential and expected activities for faculties in Academic Health Centers. Skills in these areas are key for those who teach learners (students, residents, fellows, and colleagues) and for meeting institutional promotion and tenure criteria based on teaching abilities. This e-learning module is designed to provide participants with information to meet those needs.

Upon completion of this module, participants will be able to:
  • Describe appropriate and inappropriate uses of lectures
  • List effective and ineffective techniques for using audiovisual teaching aids
  • Discuss presentation skills including: eye contact; vocal variety; body language; use of notes; and relaxing
This module includes reading materials, a twenty-minute video presentation, and a post-test. It is estimated that it will require approximately 1 hour to complete this module.
