1:00pm – 3:00pm

Storrs Campus
HBL Collaborative Classroom

The amount of work it takes to assemble effective educational content can be staggering. After all that work is done, who cares about your powerpoint? Everyone. In this workshop, we'll discuss the role of multimedia and slideshows in enhancing student learning, the pitfalls of bad presentation media, and the principles of design and narrative that can take your content to the next level. In a world full of short attention spans and competing multimedia devices, what you do with your presentation media matters. This workshop will help you use slides and multimedia to better connect with your audience and reinforce your content.
