Video presentation skills workshops – an overview

Our objective for the DIAL online presentation skills community was to work out ways of developing video presentation skills with students.

Working with Chitra Buckley, the course director of MA Fashion Entrepreneurship at the London College of Fashion, we are aiming to create a workshop that will help students develop their presentation and pitching skills by recording themselves on a video camera doing a one-minute elevator pitch to explain their business idea or project. A wider aim is to provide a workshop outline and supporting materials that others can use to teach these skills to other students.

We are also collaborating with SEE, particularly with Student Development Officer Pei-Chin Tay, who is developing training material on how to make a great video pitch for the SEED Fund, and Speaking Out, a social enterprise that I run to help develop public speaking confidence.

The following sections describe the series of three workshops that we ran, with the intention that other facilitators can run similar workshops themselves. There are a number of things we learned and things that we'd do differently included!
