SDCRID Presents a workshop for Presenters, Interpreters and instructors!
It has been called “Death by PowerPoint.” Research indicates PowerPoint slides often interfere with participant comprehension, organization, and retention of information. You are a dynamic presenter with knowledge and experience to share. Are your PowerPoints slides actually hindering your message?
What makes an effective presentation? It is more than the content: it includes the participant handouts, multimedia (PowerPoint) presentation, and information you provide verbally. Participants want presentations that engage them intellectually, visual aids to reinforce the content, and quality handout materials that can be referenced again and again.
The research-based principles in this workshop will help you create PowerPoint presentations and participant handouts that complement the content you provide. You can avoid PowerPoint poisoning in your presentations!
Come prepared to work on a new or existing training: bring two printouts of your PowerPoint slides, or an idea you are ready to begin to transform into a workshop. You’ll leave with results!
Topics we will cover
• Pike’s Five Laws of Adult Learning
• Five principles to improve PowerPoint presentations
• Techniques for communicating ideas in a visual medium
• Methods for creating successful handouts
