What is a presentationalist?

You may have noticed a trend in Medicine recently.

Hospital medics are now ‘hospitalists’.

Emergency medics are now ‘resuscitationists’.

Teachers are now ‘educationalists’.

To that end for those of us who wish to give evidence based presentations it is time to stop trying to be a mere presenter and instead claim the title of presentationalist.

This section of the blog is designed to support a workshop I’m doing this summer on presentation skills with content to come. There’s more than one way to present. What this workshop will focus on is an evidence based approach, to stand on the shoulders of giants before me, and hopefully show some amazing ways to improve how we can all improve the way we teach.
