Description:

 

Hugh Crumley, Instructional Technology Specialist, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Education, Duke UniversityPowerPoint has great potential to support an interactive, engaging presentation and provide useful visual aids. As you may well know, it also has the potential to bore and pacify audiences. In this workshop, we will examine specific suggestions from research on multimedia learning and effective uses of this tool to support student learning. To get the most from this workshop, you should already know how to use the basic functions of PowerPoint and be ready to reexamine how you are using it.

In this workshop, all participants should bring a computer and have basic PowerPoint skills (this is not a basic introduction.) By the end of the workshop, you will be able to find copyright-appropriate images online, manipulate shapes and images for use in a presentation, use animation to illustrate and support your presentation and begin to use hyperlinks and layers in PowerPoint to facilitate interactivity and non-linear presentations.

Note: Participants should bring a fully charged laptop with a working version of PowerPoint installed.
