“Making Effective Presentations at Professional Conferences: A Guide for Teachers, Graduate Students and Professors,” coauthored by professors Mary Renck Jalongo (retired) and Crystal Machado, Department of Professional Studies in Education, was published by Springer in December 2015.

Making effective presentations to fellow professionals at conferences is an important contribution for educators at all levels, from basic through higher education. 

This book prepares teachers, college students, and higher education faculty to conduct various types of presentations, including workshops and in-service trainings, poster sessions, panel discussions, roundtables, research forums, and technology-supported presentations.

The book takes the approach of a “paper mentor” that guides the reader through the use of templates, specific examples, and a wide range of online resources.
