Academic Presenting and Presentations (APP) is a research-based training course designed to help students cultivate academic presentation skills and deal with the various presentation tasks they may be expected to fulfil as part of their university or college studies. The material is suitable for a global audience and can be used in a wide range of contexts in the field of Communcation Skills, English Language Teaching and English for Academic Purposes. The instructional and practice material included not only helps students to develop their presentation skills but also deals with broader topics of interest in a study-oriented context, such as research and plagiarism. The unique content emphasises higher level task-achievement rather than discrete language points, since experience shows that this is the area most students find especially difficult.

Each unit of Academic Presenting and Presentations focuses on a different presentation genre, building the students’ awareness of how to present effectively whilst at the same time focusing attention on the specific requirements of addressing an audience in an academic environment.

The accompanying videos form an integral component of this course and consist of two types of presentation: Learning Presentations, which give advice to students, and Sample Presentations, which illustrate different types of presentation.

The downloadable videos are included in the online support materials.
