Creating Your Presentation for a Symposium
You’ve developed your project and been accepted to present at a symposium or conference, but now the excitement has faded and you’re stuck trying to decide what you should say. Do you use powerpoint or google slides? Should you add video or audio? What about slide animations? How many slides should your presentation be? How do you keep people interested? What do you do if someone asks you about the minutiae of your project that you don’t know off the top of your head? And most importantly, is this really cool specific idea you have to incorporate into your presentation a good idea?
If this sounds like you, we invite you to join this workshop to help answer some of these questions. This workshop is specifically developed to provide an opportunity for students presenting in the Digital Scholarship Research Symposium to develop their presentation and receive feedback on their projects, but the concepts we talk about can be applied to any presentation that you are working on. The workshop will include a short presentation about presentations, but the majority of the time will be open discussion with Q&A for you to come with your questions and ideas. Attendees will be provided with a worksheet they can use to focus their presentation ideas once they register.
