Design Principles for Presentations
Tuesday, Oct. 22 | Noon – 1:30 pm
126 Memorial Library
As students we have all suffered through bad PowerPoint presentations. Whether you’re presenting your research, teaching, or creating a presentation for a job, utilizing principles of effective design can be the difference between an engaged audience and a sea of glazed-over eyes. In this workshop, we will look at the DesignLab’s “CAT” of designing presentations, that is the Conceptual, Aesthetic, and Technical aspects of your research/scholarly project. We will discuss how to structure your presentation for your audience, explore common mistakes/errors, and provide you with tools to communicate your desired message clearly and effectively.
