Presentation Workshop Series in May
The MMLC offered two workshops in a series for increasing presentation skills for faculty. Both workshops were well full, and full of great questions and contributions.
Both Matthew Taylor and Mark Schaefer were on hand, offering hands-on guidance for faculty working in various software programs, and filled the time with “best practices” for presentations for conferences, and also for classroom use to improve learning.
For those that could not make it, here are two links with the resources, and links to great places on the web where you can pick up tips & tricks, templates, and short video tutorials.
- Workshop 1 • Concepts of Presentations. (Note: NetID required)
- Workshop 2 • Animations and Design Approaches.
You can see one of the many resources at the above links in the “Walk” verb tenses animation. Presentations are commonly used at conferences and and symposia, and the resource links are full of good ideas for those situations, but they are also good for drawing attention to things like sentence structure when teaching a language, or a technical process.
We will offer more workshops in the future — feel free to suggest topics that you would like to explore in an hour long or 90 minute workshop!
