Training and presentation FAIL video

HW presentingI’ve been running a lot of (Moodle) training recently, and putting a lot of effort into planning. I’ve tried to make the training relevant and interesting for the different audiences, to include opportunities for feedback. I’ve built in practical hands-on sections, and the opportunity to ask questions, even though the training for Moodle is normally at least a day long and I have a maximum of two hours.  I read all feedback carefully and tweak the session plan to suit.  I have talented helpers in the sessions with me.

Still, every session has its own “vibe” and after 30 years of training, there is still something new that can happen to surprise me.

So I was quite amused by this video Every Presentation Ever: Communication FAIL

If you run training sessions or make presentations yourself, you’ll probably laugh out loud…
