Effective presenting is an important skill for behavior analysts to master in order to best engage and teach audiences, advance ones career, represent the field, and ultimately disseminate the science. Unfortunately, graduate training programs in behavior analysis have historically not emphasized training in effective presenting. This is concerning given the professional advancements and opportunities that can arise as a result of one being a skill presenter including job prospects and invited speaking engagements. The goal of this Professional Development Series is for the invited presenters to provide insight into their experiences with as well as thoughts and recommendations on how to be an effective presenter. The panelists come from diverse institutions and backgrounds and have unique experiences and expertise with regard to presenting. In particular, the panelists will discuss methods and offer advice for preparing presentations for various audiences, delivering a presentation in an engaging manner, and creating visually appealing slideware. The panel will conclude with an opportunity for audience members to ask questions regarding topics related to effective presenting.
