The International Institute for Genealogical Studies course, Lecturing Skills Including Preparation, teaches the skills needed to present genealogical-related lectures. It is a “hands-on” course where the student presents a lecture via our VIRTUAL LEARNING ROOM.
We invite you to participate and hear your fellow student. This is a 30-minute lecture, followed by a 10-minute Question & Answer period and a short poll to provide the student with feedback on their skills. Please come and support your fellow students!
This is an excellent learning experience for all involved – the student presenter and the audience! We all can learn new and interesting tidbits, even from topics that are not in our area of research.
