Today, a really strong team of students put together and presented a “Mini Discussion” about the TED Commandments, why these presentation rules are important, and how those rules apply to all presenters.
To conclude their presentation, the group asked us to think about our own class commandments for Professional Communication and Presentation. Here are my favorite 5 of the 10:
Thou shalt respect the audience.
Thou shalt “get naked” with delivery.
Thou shalt interact.
Thou shalt not rely on PowerPoint slides.
Thou shalt always be prepared.
Some of the commandments we wrote on the board are our silly class inside jokes, but most of our tips are incredibly helpful for communicating and presenting effectively.
Here is the Mini Discussion team comprised of Fiifi, Kim, Emily, and Joe posting with the Class Commandments:

What great things have your students been up to lately?
