Presentation Description

Robert Gagne proposed that instruction can be framed into nine events, and these “events” still endure as one of the standards for designing presentations. In the Information Literacy course at Valdosta State University, students learn to create lessons based on Gagne’s approach. A group of graduates from that program will demonstrate how to develop teaching presentations based on the Gagne model. A follow-up discussion will center upon how this type of formulaic teaching can precipitate deeper thinking about the art of teaching. Links to lesson plans will be included.
