For this showcase we draw on our workwith future faculty and current staff to demonstrate Learning Presentations as scaffolds forshowcasing ideas, guiding learning, and engaging learners. GoalsPresenters will: Displayhow message choices influence presentation platform selection, decisions about presentation format and audience learning. Diagram the components of message, audience, learning to inform presentation choice- making. Showcase three customizable presentation approaches: Learning 3x3s, Presentation Slams and Academic PechaKuchas.Participants will: Discuss design elements that enhance audience learning, which will require only a little experience in presenting or in teaching.

Learning Presentations: Ten Framing PrinciplesScaffold• Learning - Consider the ways in which your audience members might best learn.• Design - Begin with design, then continue to incorporate design as content.• Story - Use story to provide context and organize your facts.Connect• Play - Laughing people are more creative people.• Feeling - Invoke emotion and invite audience members to connect thinking and feeling responses, cognitive and affective learning.• Meaning - Convey core idea / central concern, even passion in your presentation: use this opportunity to make a small difference in the world.• Symphony - Integrate all elements of your presentation to shape the big picture. Seek ways to illuminate logic, analysis, and intuition as part of setting out idea or topic. Design to acknowledge audience members’ thinking and feeling responses / cognitive and affective learning modes.Extend• Acknowledge - Acknowledge the origins of your presentation elements, contributors of ideas and images, and the role of audience members as co-creators of meaning as you interact with them. Acknowledge the presentation itself is not the main learning tool.• Ownership - Own your presentation approach: don’t be owned by the presentation software or what prevails as a “normal” presentation. Own what will evoke and support learning.• Openness - Remain open to change, and remain committed to sharing what you create as an open educational resource. Learning Presentations: We draw upon the concepts of Garr Reynolds. Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design & Delivery. 2008 Daniel Pink. A Whole New Mind. 2006.
