Activity: Deciding the topic

  • Tell learners that three days have been dedicated for planning, preparing and executing formal presentations. Following are the rules:

  • Students will do the preparation in this session and in the next session. They will execute the presentation on the 3rd day

  • These will be group presentations and students will choose their group members

  • It’s compulsory to use powerpoint presentation (even if it’s just one slide/picture/video) or any digital medium for presentation (in case the training is taking place at a place where projectors, computers etc are not available then allow them to use chart papers or any other material that they can use to make their presentation interesting)

  • Each group will get 10 minutes for presentation and 2 minutes for “question-answer” round

  • Groups will bring their digital material (PPT/Video etc.) in pendrive or they can share the material with the trainer so trainer can run the PPT on his/her computer

  • Students should dress professionally on the execution day and should assume that they are giving a presentation infront of authorities. 

  • The class strength will be divided in 6 groups

  • External members (teachers from their institute, training managers etc.) may come to attend the presentations on the execution day

  • Feedback on the parameters mentioned in the handbook will be shared with each group the next day

  • Give them 5 minutes to form groups. The entire class should get divided in 6 groups

  • Give them 15 minutes do some research and decide one topic for their presentation

  • All the group will share their topics

30 Minutes

Activity 2: Flow of the presentation

  • Groups will be asked to create a flow of their presentation (structure)- what all will they present and how

  • They will be free to take help from each other and from the trainer. 

  • Encourage them to make a logical flow of the presentation

  • In case some groups ask for more time, tell them to continue the discussion after the class and come prepared with the excel sheet in the next session

  • The outcome should be an excel sheet showing the following columns:

  • Time (example 1 minutes)

  • What (Topic/ subtopic/ part of the topic)

  • How (PPT/ Video/ Story etc)

  • Who (names of group members covering that part)

35 Minutes

Closing Protocol:

  • Announce the next time you will be visiting them

  • Share the topic of the next session
