Webinar Recording: Giving Your First Conference Presentation: What No One Tells You (or When PowerPoint and Good Intentions Meet Reality)
Maurice Coleman and I gave a one-hour webinar entitled “Giving Your First Conference Presentation: What No One Tells You (or When PowerPoint and Good Intentions Meet Reality)”.
Part of your professional development and support of the profession is giving presentations at conferences about your research or new initiatives. This professional presentation should help to propel your career, so how can you create and deliver content that will do just that?We had over 80 people attend it live and now the recording is available for others to view. The handout from the webinar is also available. If this topic interests you, please give a listen. From the feedback we've received, we know that even those who have done conference presentations will learn something new or be reminded of something that they need to be doing.
T is for Training, in which I frequently participate. Our familiarity with each other and with the topic meant that the conversation was lively! Maurice is also in the process of writing a book on this topic (Crash Course in Presentations to be released in 2014), so his mind is full of advice on this!
We did this webinar as part of the "20 Years Online" celebration in Syracuse University's School of Information Studies. 20 years ago there were no such things as webinars or learning management systems. We've come a long way with MOOCs now being the rage. (Some do wonder if we're already in a post-MOOC world.)
