“Share something that you do in the classroom that works.”
The perfect TIPS presentation is just that simple. Presenters should focus on actionable teaching innovations, practices, and strategies that have proven to be successful in the classroom and beyond.
- Leave the theory behind. TIPS is about sharing tools, things your colleagues can do to improve student success.
- Keep it short & sweet. Presentations should be 7-10 minutes in length.
- This isn’t a lecture, it’s show-and-tell. Presentations should be informative and informal.
- The cameras are running. Keep in mind that TIPS presentations will be video recorded and archived. Remember to speak loudly and clearly.
- Have your handouts ready. TIPS is all about the “takeaway.” Prepare a 1-page handout that your colleagues can easily reference when the workshop is over.
