Seeking Feedback on Presentation

Friday, 30 Jan 2009 | by Mark Tucker

At the Mesa Family History Expo 2008 held in November, I presented “Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard.”  On February 27, I will be presenting it again at the 5th Annual St. George Family History Expo 2009. I am seeking feedback from those who attended my class in November as well as those who have viewed the presentation slides online:

  5. How have you found the presentation practical and useful?
  6. What concepts could have been explained better?
  7. If there were a follow-on presentation, what would it be about?
  8. What ways do you think I can make the presentation better?
  9. What can I do better as a presenter?

For Those Who Have Viewed The Slides Online

  1. Hey Mark – great presentation. Here is some feedback strictly from a proofreading standpoint:

    Slide 31 – bullet point numbering starts at “2”
    Slide 63 – “bleeding” of title – obscured
    Slide 64 – “bleeding” of title – obscured
    Slide 68 – “1” is hanging on the end of the line in first bullet point – push over to next line

    Overall I enjoyed the presentation – some slides really can’t stand on their own but I haven’t pointed them out yet – I will probably take a second run through the slides later today.

    Cheers

  2. Mark, your presentation was great. Since you asked here is my input:

    1. Was there too much material to cover in the alotted time? No, but hard to remember all that was presented.

    2. What content should I consider cutting? Nothing, keep it all but have follow up presentations. Even webinars at advertised times.

    3. What specific content that should definately be kept in? All of it.

    4. How do you feel differently about the presentation a few months later than you did right after it was presented? Very good – especially after you made the research forms available online.

    5. How have you found the presentation practical and useful? Yes, it was useful especially after you made the research forms available.

    6. What concepts could have been explained better? For me this was pretty detailed. The best way for me would be to have the slides available to take notes on.

    7. If there were a follow-on presentation, what would it be about? Yes, follow-up presentations but in the form of webinars and case studies.

    8. What ways do you think I can make the presentation better? Your presentation was very good and very professional. However, there is room for improvement. I have two suggestions. STudies have shown that it is very difficult to listen, read, and take notes at the same time. Therefore, I would suggest following the Cliff Atkinson approach “Beyond Bullet Points”. He has very interesting and effective material. I use it all the time in my presentations. Good his name and review his material. Second, google Tony Buzan and present using the http://www.imindmap.com concepts. This will also help students retain more of what you present.

    9. What can I do better as a presenter? See number 8 above. Are your presentations on this site available with audio? If not could you put audio with them?
