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.
