3:30 – 5:00 Pre-Conference Workshop: Three Simple Rules for Great Presentations! by Lee Hilyer at M.D. Anderson Library
This is a hands-on workshop that will introduce you to three simple, evidence- and research-based rules that will help you create and deliver better presentations of any format (PowerPoint, chalkboard, flip chart, etc.). The rules are based on instructional design and learning theories, as well as the current understanding of how the human brain receives and processes information.
When you leave, you will have a simple set of guidelines you can use to improve the learning outcomes of any presentation you give as well as a list of resources for graphics, templates, and techniques to use in your presentations.
