Overview

Why do your presentations at conferences sometimes fall flat?

As educators, we should be modelling exemplary presentation skills and harnessing our creativity. Instead our audiences are often lost in our PowerPoint slides and 

 

  • endless
  • bullet
  • points

 

 

We would not tolerate this level of tediousness in the education innovations that we create so why do we remain in the box when we present? Effective presentations at conferences are about communicating our message effectively and with creativity. This webinar will engage you in a conversation that examines the traditional paradigms of the conference presentation. We will challenge you to consider your scholarly message and how to represent that message in your presentations.
