Death by Library PowerPoint (IL Palooza 2013)

1,506 views

Published on

Presented at IL Palooza, MacEwan University Library, Edmonton, AB on April 19, 2013.

Abstract: Boring PowerPoint presentations are everywhere in academia. We’ve all seen them - and despite our best intentions to engage students, we have likely presented a few of our own. Drawing on “Presentation Zen” techniques effectively applied in information literacy instruction, this session will empower participants to embrace simple presentation styles that can facilitate learning through recognition of the brain’s dominant capacity for visual recall.
