Researching & Selecting Your Educational Content

Required Elements
  1. Ensure You Are Presenting Data-Infused Content
  2. Confirm Your Content Meets The 3 Learner Outcomes You Selected
        • Consider the learning level requested of you and ensure content is aligned with this level
        • Ensure your learner outcomes enhance the knowledge or performance of the learner
        • State learning outcomes in clear, concise, measurable and observable terms during your presentation introduction
          • Use action words such as; perform, identify, name, list or explain, etc…
          • Avoid vague and unmeasurable words, like; understand, know, become aware of, become familiar with, etc…these are difficult to measure.
          • More on Achieving Learner Outcomes
  3. Consider Your Motivation and Make Content Disclosures for Maximum Transparency 
        • Consider your motivation: Were you paid to research or develop this material or do you have any potential financial gain regarding the content being shared?  If so, disclose it!
        • Do your unpaid affiliations or volunteer activities limit the content you will be presenting in any way? If so, disclose it!
        • Are you presenting data / content that represents a variety of vantage points / methods / tools and or are you presenting only specific solutions, methods or products / brands / tools? If so, disclose it!
        • When In Doubt, it is better to disclose any perceived or potential conflicts of interest up front than to be sorry not to have later!

Preparing Your Presentation or Slideshow

Required Elements
  1. Include Our Learning Academy Logo On Your Presentation/Slideshow
  2. Include Content & Presenter Disclosures On Your Slideshow for Maximum Transparency 
  3. Did you Spell Ohio Speech-Language-Hearing Association (OSLHA) correctly and with the appropriate hyphenation throughout your presentation and slides?
  4. Make Sure You Have Enough Content Prepared To Present a Course That is a Minimum of 2 Hours in Length When Recorded
        • Breaks in your lecture for attendee self-reflection or worksheet completion are not counted as presentation time so instead we highly recommend you present content during the Webinar and offer reflection elements as a supplemental learning tool to be completed by attendees later and not as a part of your CE presentation time.
  5. Confirm if OSLHA Secured a Sponsor of your Course/Session
        • OSLHA will provide you the name and logo for any corporate sponsor who desires to show support for your course.
        • If you are aware of any prospective/preferred sponsor, please feel free to let us know and we will attempt to reserve this session for their sponsorship.
