Death By PowerPoint: How to Create an Effective Presentation

February 6th, 2013 by Amee Odom in Announcements

Death by Power PointThis Lyceum event teaches participants how to use PowerPoint effectively in their academic pursuits as well as in the professional world. The presentation will cover common mistakes, which will then be avoided by the participants in future presentations.

The presentation will also cover the pecha-kucha format of linear presentations, as well as up and coming alternatives to PowerPoint. These alternatives can be more effective for student and faculty use depending on the discipline, assignment, or venue. This Lyceum event will also prepare students for in-class presentations as well as the Undergraduate Creative and Investigative Partnerships Symposium.
