Presentations are an integral part of our professional lives, so how can we improve them to enhance learning? Guest presenter Lee Andrew Hilyer, MLIS, M.Ed.in Instructional Technology, head of Information and Access Services at the University of Houston Libraries, will provide three simple evidence-based and theory-backed guidelines we can use to drastically improve our presentations and make them more learner-centered. Come learn why combining words and pictures together can result in better learning, and why text-filled slides can actually impair it.


This is one part of a larger series in which the Research Medical Library will be collaborating with Medical Graphics, Scientific Publications, and the HR Talent Development Department to present our spring series, Prepare to Present: Skills and Techniques You Need to Effectively Communicate Your Research Data, aimed at faculty and staff researchers presenting their data at upcoming conferences and meetings. The series runs with weekly sessions from February 12 - March 13.
