While polling others about memorable presentations has led me to wonder is it ever acceptable to share the results of your evaluation study when you’re presenting to other evaluators? Under what circumstances? Here’s my guidance so far.
As part of the American Evaluation Association’s Potent Presentations Initiative, I’ve been asking people to think about some of the most memorable presentations that they’ve seen and guest blogger, Mika Yoder Yamashita is sharing hers.
I’ve been asking evaluators and non-evaluators to think about the most potent presentations they’ve seen and heard. While there have been a lot of similarities, I’ve come to the conclusion that presenters can choose to communicate either content and knowledge or attitudes and ideas.
One of the best things about evaluation conferences is that you get a chance to see your former coworkers and compare notes. While chatting with a former teammate recently I realized we were approaching PowerPoints very differently. There’s no “one size fits all” PowerPoint design, but perhaps evaluators can learn how to design PowerPoints differently depending on the purpose?
