Teaching & Presentations

Here are some articles on teaching and presentations. These are gleaned from teaching adults at UNLV and are not meant for teaching non-adults, but the principals may apply.

For anyone doing presentations or teaching about any subject, these articles should help you understand how adults learn, the pitfalls of presenting information, keeping your audiences attention, and who knows what else I will add.

As always your comments on the articles are appreciated!
