Presentation skills and performance

The aim of this style is to capture, review, and enhance performance of individuals and groups through reflection and discussion. Strathie (2006) notes that this approach promotes self-directed learning, increases motivation and encourages learners to find their own solutions.

Schon (1987) emphasises the importance of novice ‘reflection-in-action’ (during a task) and ‘reflection-on-action’ (reviewing a task) to gain deeper learning experiences.. Recorded performances can assist in learner reflection and can be used for students’ e-portfolios.
