Abstract


This workshop will begin with a brief overview of an English for Academic Presentations course that was designed for 4th year and graduate students at a technology institute.  The presenter will then give a detailed description of an original rubric that was designed and the norming sessions that were conducted to assess the students’ midterm and final scientific research PowerPoint presentations. Although the context of the course is science and technology, the rubric and information shared can easily be adapted to any presentation skills or public speaking course and a background in science and technology is not necessary to participate in this workshop. The second half of the workshop will provide time for critical discussion and brainstorming on how participants can edit or adapt the rubric for their own courses. Hard copies of the rubric will be provided at the workshop and soft copies provided upon request.
