Mastering oral presentations through PASS

Cunningham, C. and Martin-Lynch, P. (2014) Mastering oral presentations through PASS. In: 10th National PASS Forum, 30 September - 1 October 2014, Wollongong, VIC.


Oral communication is seen to be highly valued as a graduate attribute and an employability skill. However, 75% of the population has been identified to have a fear of public speaking. This workshop introduces participants to an innovative approach for incorporating oral presentation skills into PASS sessions. This workshop will illustrate the potential to incorporate public speaking training into PASS sessions and leader training. The participants will be actively involved in the workshop presenting to their fellow participants. Using the non-threatening and supportive environment of PASS, students can gain confidence and exposure to public speaking.
