When we ask someone without a training background – perhaps a subject matter expert or a colleague with a particular set of skills or experience – to present to a group, how can we set them up for success?
Offering tools such as a lesson plan template or a presentation guide is a start. Offering ideas and examples of stellar visual aids can also make a big difference.
Using a Training Checklist
If you want to take presentation preparation to the next level, however, sometimes a presenter needs some help double-checking his or her plans – does their plan include everything they’ll need in order to engage a group?
I’ve used this training checklist during train-the-trainer presentations and participants have found it extremely helpful to check over their lesson plans prior to delivering a practice lesson. I’ve also found it to be a useful tool to structure my feedback for colleagues who have asked me to look over their lessons.
