Session Description

Most people can tell you what makes a bad presentation. Hours and hours of slides with too much text, loud sound effects, topsy-turvy animations, unreadable fonts, and worst of all… it’s all done with the lights off. So what makes a good presentation? How can we present information that is clear, understandable, and memorable? This session will provide simple design tips for creating presentations that anyone can use.

This session will take place in the AA-building on the FSW Lee Campus in room AA-168. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Determine what type of presentation aid to use in different scenarios
  • Describe essential design principles in action (including visual unity, pattern, balance, emphasis, and rhythm)
  • Evaluate visual support for purpose, clarity, and retention
  • List applications for creating presentations
