Academic Presenting and Presentations
This Teacher's Book is the companion to Academic Presenting and Presentations (ISBN 978-3-7347-8367-8), a training course designed to help students cultivate academic presentation skills and deal with the various presentation tasks they may be required to fulfil during the course of their university studies. The material is suitable for a global audience and can be used in a wide range of contexts in the fields of Communication Skills, English Language Teaching and English for Academic Purposes. In addition to providing valuable notes on each unit, the Teacher's Book contains key information on the underlying principles, concept and structure of the course and sets out the rationale behind its design. Teachers, and through them their students, can benefit from the depth of the insights presented here, making the classroom experience a rewarding and enjoyable one. Academic presentations can be particularly challenging for non-native English speakers and consequently, the print material and the accompanying video recordings dovetail neatly to provide linguistic support and guidance as well as enhancing presentation skills and providing a forum for practice, feedback and ongoing improvement. However, broader topics of interest appropriate to a study-oriented context, such as research and plagiarism, are also dealt with in a unique balance of content that goes beyond the treatment of discrete language points and emphasises high-level task achievement whilst at the same time focusing attention on the specific requirements of addressing an audience in an academic environment. Averil Bolster has been teaching English since the mid nineteen-nineties and has worked in countries as diverse as Portugal, Turkey, China, Vietnam and Azerbaijan on a wide range of EFL/ESL programs, including exam preparation, English for Academic Purposes and technical and engineering English. She holds an MA in ELT Materials Development from Leeds Metropolitan University and an International Diploma in Language Teaching Management. In addition to co-authoring the present course, she has developed and piloted a variety of teaching materials designed to promote successful learning and enhance the educational experience for speakers of other languages.
