RESPOND TO STUDENT POST compare and contrast their experience in presenting their information with your own experience. Offer suggestions about how you overcame, or would overcome, similar challenges.
I faced a lot of challenges. The feedback that I received was so great but I had to keep trying harder because it wasn’t exactly correct, or maybe I missed something. My audience was GE scientists. Again, I had a hard time tailoring this information at first because I wasn’t sure how this should be presented. After reading through the articles I found I could see how it was laid out and then I didn’t seem to have a problem. I thought my feedback was the most informative knowledge I could have asked for.
I have yet to submit my presentation, but it is in the works. My specific audience for my presentation [about electric cars] is young adults to Millennials, which encompasses those in their late teens to early thirties. I chose this audience because I fall into this age group and I believe the audience I can relate to the most is my own. I do not have a lot of experience surrounding the topic of electric cars, so I figured if I can make myself understand, then I can teach others.
My presentation is being adapted to fit my audience through the language and vocabulary as well as offering a visually appealing piece. Through using causal language and breaking down vocabulary for it to be understood by a larger audience I have been able to tailor my presentation to the intended audience. Additionally, making a visually appealing presentation aids in causing the topic to feel more relatable as well as forces the audience to pay more attention than if it were a bland, simple scientific presentation.
Personally, I did not find any of the scientific communications studied throughout this course to be helpful when tailoring my presentation to my audience. I am a marketing major, so I mainly applied elements I learned in past marketing courses regarding appealing to a target market when crafting this presentation, along with the speaker notes and rough drafts.
In your post, explain any challenges you encountered in adapting your presentation for your specific audience. Did you find any of the scientific communications you studied or used in this course helpful when tailoring your message to your audience?
