Presenting is considered as a core competence of the higher educated professional. However, it remains questionable how effective learning environments fostering presentation competence should be constructed. This thesis focuses on formulating evidence-based educational design principles. Further, research questions explore effective feedback processes within the context of realistic presentation skills courses. These studies verifies the potential impact of feedback sources, such as teachers, peers and the self, on developing students’ oral presentation competence. Besides studying the quality of differing feedback sources, Virtual Reality is studied as an alternative feedback mode encouraging students’ cognition, skills and attitudes towards presenting. The constructed VR-tool, based on the principles of this thesis, is already implemented in secondary education, higher education and the corporate sector.
