Abstract

Oral presentations are an increasingly used tool in the field of high school and university education. This tool is often used without taking full advantage of all its potentialities, especially those that have to do with the training of lecturers and, specially, with the positive impact it has on the audience. This article reports the results of applying the microteaching technique with the purpose of improving the process of learning of the lecturers, through the learning of the contents that they have to present, focusing this learning on four simple steps that will allow a better understanding of the theme and better learning from the audience. The results show that the incorporation of microteaching in the process of preparation of expositions generally improves the work done to prepare the presentations and improves the degree of comprehension on the topics exposed to the class.
