Diabetes Products and Accessories Reflection

This lecture experience was the first of its kind for me.  Standing alone, in front of a room of 150 students, was incredibly nerve wracking.  As I was giving the presentation itself, I could feel my nervousness manifesting in filler works (kind of, like) and exaggerated hand movements.  There were times during the lecture where I would catch myself speaking too quickly and put in the effort to slow down.  With my nervousness, I did not engage in as much active participation as I had planned.  Another aspect of the lecture that I hadn’t realized would be difficult for me, was using someone else’s lecture materials.  There were times where I felt thrown off my track, even though I had practiced it, because it wasn’t where my natural flow of thought/word would have flowed.  These are all valuable insights for me to use in order to perform better the next time I present in a lecture setting.

                While noticing all the things I could learn from and do better in future lectures, there were also positive aspects.  Once I got “in the groove” of the lecture, speaking to the students was much more comfortable as was presenting the material.  Being confident enough in the material to walk around as I handed out various items for students to look at felt very good as well.  While terrifying to begin speaking in front of a large amount of people, the experience was a thrilling one that I highly enjoyed.  I look forward to working to improve my presentation skills and becoming more comfortable presenting in front of a large crowd of people.

Drug-Induced Psychiatric Diseases Reflection

Before presenting this lecture, I had never been in a flipped classroom environment.  The most difficult aspect coming in to this lecture was creating materials that would be conducive for an environment I had never experienced.  The volume of materials that needed to be presented within such a short period of time was also difficult for me.  With three topics to cover, the creation of the materials was quite difficult.  However, after completing all the materials there was a significant stress relief and prospect of the lecture became more enjoyable.

                While actually presenting the lecture, I noticed at the beginning I was nervous, but not as nervous as I had been during previous presentations.  This was comforting for me and I was able to fall into a more comfortable, confident presentation.  Throughout the presentation I would notice my pace becoming more rapid during periods of information I was most interested in or passionate about.  During the rest of my presentation there was a lot less rapid speech, an improvement upon my previous presentations.  Overall I felt significantly more comfortable giving these presentation that I have felt with other presentations in the past.

                Throughout all of these experiences, I have noticed continuous improvement in my speaking pace, my confidence/comfortability while presenting, and moving around and talking freely while presenting as opposed to standing still and reading the majority of the information off slides or other materials.  While difficult and stressful at times, the experiences I have gained have done wonders for my presentation skills.
