In the Creating Policy Presentations module, participants learn how to communicate with policymakers through a formal policy presentation. Sessions address principles of effective oral communication and visual aids that are important for developing a compelling presentation. This module builds on the principles of policy writing in Module 3, which are also relevant to oral communication. Participants apply the skills by developing and delivering their own oral presentation for a policy audience.
At the conclusion of this module, participants will be able to:
- Select appropriate data and key messages for an oral presentation with a defined policy audience.
- Define principles of presentation slide design relevant to the display of text and data.
- Develop and deliver a 12-minute presentation that communicates research findings and policy recommendations.
At the conclusion of this module, participants will have developed their own:
- Policy presentation.
