Add Another Slide: Designing Presentations for Research and Teaching
Digital presentations, usually using MS PowerPoint, are a basic tool used in any successful lecture. Most academics, researchers, lecturers and students put together their own presentations, without previous knowledge of design and or real understanding of the conceptual and design structure of the slide. This practical workshop will present the principles of design which are important for the creation of a successful presentation. It focuses on the demands and character of the norms widely accepted in academia, based on the workshop’s leader’s experience as a lecturer and a graphic designer. The workshop is intended for academics who use presentations and want to enrich their visual content for purposes of demonstration and interest but without impinging upon the written content or the lecture. Basic principles of design related to presentations, the organization of the slides etc. will be presented.
Participants who complete the workshop successfully will be familiar with design principles of presentation, will be able to analyze the design of existing presentations and implement design principles to improve presentations of their own materials.
