Presented by Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Animal Care Academy, this segment of our Animal Behavior and Animal Care series of clinics and classes will build on the previous courses by delving deeper into how to structure and build a presentation for informal education audiences.
In this class, students will learn how to put together a presentation on virtually any subject, using the public speaking skills from Public Speaking Basics. This class will focus more on content and structure than physical presence, and students will leave it knowing how to create engaging presentations that don’t just share facts, but tell stories. Students will learn to identify and include specific messaging, build their presentation into acts, create a clear introduction and conclusion, and deal with questions.
This course is taught by ranch owner Lessa Ritzma, whose previous career credits include zookeeper, informal science educator, and exotic animal trainer performing in animal shows, along with over twenty years of horse experience. Guest lecturers may teach portions of the course.
This is a hands-off, live demonstration and lecture class. An animal may participate for demonstration purposes. All participants will qualify for the Public Speaking for Informal Education Audiences credit for Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Animal Behavior and Animal Care certificates. The Animal Behavior certificate core courses are meant to be taken in order, and this is the eighth class of the series.
$50 per participant for 2-hour class. Limit 15 participants. Weather permitting.
