Too often teachers and lecturers who teach interesting subjects fail to capture the imagination of potential students who might attend their courses, or fail to keep the attention of maintain the motivation of attending students. Researchers often fail to win funding for similar reasons.
An understanding of how to form memorable “Sticky Ideas”, and how to structure these as “Compelling Points of View” (CPOV) will help attract and retain students, embed important learning in order to improve the quality of teaching, learning and results. And win funding.
A CPOV is one that is motivational and attracts the listener. It could be a short lift speech of 2-3 minutes to potential first-degree or research students, or a longer 15-minute presentation from a stage at a conference. A CPOV is primarily about STRUCTURE and CONTENT, but delivery skills are inevitably touched on. A chance to practice a CPOV in a safe environment is valuable.
