Real World Engineering: A Course for Masters Students Headed for Industry Sally A. McKee email@example.com Shakespearean Device • Talk within a talk • This course is the example content • Course within a course!
It’s All about Connections • Start with story that establishes trust • Choreograph presentation • Vary kinesthetics with pace, content • Try to convert bad habits to good • Interact with audience

Course Motivation (II) • Use new technologies in class • Calendar program for meetings • CourseInfo website for interaction • Video for presentations • Survey software to evaluate success • Learn to be a better teacher • Avoid “busy work”
Giving Presentations • Eschew outlines • They waste time and space • Talk should flow naturally • Avoid monotone • Be creative • Don’t need to use PowerPoint, etc. • Use us as “laboratory animals”
Kinesthetics == Body Language + Motion • Use space wisely • 12+ feet == public • 4-12 feet == personal • 4- feet == intimate • Use posture to connect • Open palms • Leaning forward
