In the BCG Genealogical Standards Manual there is a neat chapter entitled “Teaching Standards” (pages 21-25) which I really like. It packs a lot in a few words. Here’s some of the concepts for lecturers
- Presentations are accurately titled, coherant, reliable and useful.
- Handouts and visuals for each presentation are accurate, topic approriate and enhance learning.
- Bibliographies in handouts are up-to-date and suitably comptehensive.
- Lecturers do not reuse another speaker’s overall presentation or any part thereof without permission and full source citation .
Take a look yourself. If you haven’t a copy of this work, here is the citation:

This is the sort of work I keep at hand at my desk all the time. You should too. What do you yhink? your comments are welcome
