APEX: Using Visual Aids for Effective Presentations

February 24, 2017

Don't let your audience get lost in your slides! 

Your graphic slides are an important part of your presentation, enhancing the meaning and impact of your words. But too often during presentations, slides are a distraction--either because they are too wordy or because they don't complement what you're saying. Learn how to make your slides a complimentary part of your presentation so they really add value to your audience and your presentation in a meaningful way.  

This session is facilitated by Poh Tan. Poh holds a PhD in Biology, and is currently pursuing her second PhD in Education, and has participated in TedX at Stanley Park. She is also a graduate student facilitator in the Student Learning Commons/Research Commons
