An effective presentation ends with a thorough summary and a memorable conclusion. These are the last opportunities you will have to get your points across. They should be powerful and lasting in the memories of attendees. The work involved in developing and delivering an effective presentation doesn't end when the presentation is over. Audience evaluations are critical in providing feedback to presenters about all aspects of the presentation. The development of an evaluation form that will provide presenters with important information is key. Follow up with audience members who are looking for additional information, or who may have specific questions, is another critical aspect of an effective presentation.
For many people, fear of public speaking is difficult to overcome. This module series starts out with a unit on ways to be a relaxed and controlled presenter. It also covers the critical, opening piece of your presentation - the attention-getter, and how to develop an effective attention-getter to start your presentation off on the right foot. Once you have the attention of the audience, however, it's important to keep that attention and focus. This can be done by carefully managing the presentation as it's moving along.
This series of modules provides an in-depth overview of training and development. The modules also explore the critical areas of concern for training program planners, discuss basics of mentoring, explain the importance of coaching, and emphasize the need for program evaluations and needs assessments. Those who complete all the modules in the series will receive a certificate in training and development.

Program evaluation is complex, and serves many purposes. Evaluations are used to communicate the value and the effectiveness of the program. They are used to find and address areas in which improvement is needed, and to note areas of success. As part of continuous improvement efforts, they should be designed to give the programmer feedback on all aspects of the program. An effective evaluation summary can help the programmer, the organization, and the learner, in many ways. For those associated with the training program development and implementation processes, the job doesn't end with the completion of the program itself. Evaluation is a critical component of all successful training programs. An evaluation strategy that relates to the program objectives should be developed and implemented as part of the overall training program development process.

Program Implementation picks up after the development stage has been completed. objectives have been written, transfer of learning strategies have been completed, program formats and instructors have been determined, and marketing and budget plans have been set. Program Implementation starts out with the instructional design phase. What types of activities will be included in your training program, and how will each activity help to meet program objectives? Details about facilities and the coordination of onsite events on the day of the program are also included in this unit. This module also includes units on giving presentations, facilitation discussions, and conducting effective training sessions. A major part of any training program is the conclusion, where the facilitator wraps everything up, highlights key points, ensures that goals have been met, and plans for next steps in the program process. This module covers program conclusions and closings as well.
