CRL Learns: Tools for Effective Slide Presentations

Last week David Gnojek, Art Director here at the Center for Research on Learning at the University of Kansas, talked to us about the principles of good design.

About the presentation…
Colors, fonts and images are too often an afterthought when it comes to presenting important information. Thoughtless use of design can confuse or bore your audience and, at worst, make your presentation forgettable. A visually engaging presentation will reinforce and clarify your message to your audience as well as help you keep on track when presenting. By learning a handful of basic design principles, you can create clean, beautiful slides that any LCD projector would be proud to display. This talk will discuss practical ways to pair meaningful content with eye-catching design to create effective and enlightening slide presentations.
