Are you interested in developing your genealogy Lecturing Skills? With the current restrictions for in-person meetings, many societies and organizations have taken the plunge to host virtual meetings, many for the first time. This has created an increased need for lectures and speakers ready to present online. The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers many courses on specific topics, including Lecturing Skills.
The Lecturing Skills Including Preparation course focuses on the skills needed to present genealogical-related lectures to a variety of audiences. It is a “hands-on” course where the student will develop all aspects of the lecturing process including: the proposal and biographical sketch; marketing; syllabus material; creating lecture slides; and much more. The step-by-step course material will guide you all the way, creating templates to use over and over, no matter what your topic may be.
Note: In order to complete this course, the student must develop and give a 30-minute lecture to an audience of students and/or genealogical society members virtually via the National Institute for Genealogical Studies’ Virtual Learning Room. This very practical application of skills learned will launch them with confidence into becoming a valuable asset to any genealogical society or organization, or add an additional income stream to their genealogical business plan.
This 14-week course is currently only offered three times per year. The next scheduled course will begin on April 5, 2021. Check the Lecturing Skills Including Preparation course page under the “Register” tab to see when this course will be offered again.
