However, the logistics of developing, assigning, and evaluating presentations often pose challenges. This webinar provides you with strategies and techniques to overcome the challenges by outlining different ways students can engage in oral presentations, reviewing some basic criteria to include when developing assignments, and discussing evaluation and grading strategies. Join us to learn how to make oral presentations work for you and students.
