Workshop

Think about the boring, confusing, and disorganized presentations that you have sat through (and delivered) that failed to connect with the audience. Applying findings developed in controlled-lab and classroom-based studies can lead to improved presentations which translate into durable learning that extends from short-term memory to long-term retention. Unfortunately, many presenters have little understanding of the underlying multimedia learning principles that can guide attention, memory and learning. This hands-on workshop introduces the importance of creating a "story structure", key design principles, and a practical plan for delivering presentations with a cohesive message.

Lunchtime Presentation: "Think before you speak: the art of presentation delivery"

Workshop participants will learn practical techniques to use when preparing for their presentation so they will not need to rely on word-for-word scripted notes, allowing them to connect with their content and their audience in a more meaningful way at the time of delivery. Proven strategies to stay calm and mindful during the presentation will also be explored.
