In this workshop, participants will learn new
teaching formats to replace or enhance traditional slide
presentations, and will share any additional innovative strategies from their personal experience. Through a small group activity we will demonstrate how a traditional PowerPoint presentation can be restructured into a more exciting learning experience. Participants will receive a
Tool Kit of innovative teaching techniques to share with
their colleagues to enhance the learning experience. Registrants are asked to bring a mobile device and an old previously created powerpoint presentation that they would like to enhance.
This session will focus on the Core Area of Presentation and Lecturing Skills.
