Presentation Skills workshop [TG1/PRES]
The morning session will cover the golden rules of creating presentations, finding amazing images without breaking copyright laws or spending any money, and creating PowerPoint Presentations in three different styles. The three styles vary in complexity and flexibility so you can choose which to use for a given presentation.
The afternoon introduces Sway (an alternative presentation tool that also allows you to create interactive reports and other multimedia for use in websites) and Kahoot, a quizzing tool. We cover when and when not to use them, and how to use them most effectively.
The final section of the day centres around presenting itself: researching presentations, delivering talks and teaching, and conquering nerves.
