Presentations have become one of the most common forms of communication. Sadly, though, most presentations do not communicate well. Whether we're presenting progress towards quarterly goals or team building techniques, today's audiences expect more than text-heavy slides. Brain science tells us that we process images and words in different parts of the brain, and that engaging multiple parts of the brain literally engages learners more effectively. This workshop combines the science of learning with an easily applicable process to make presentations more visual without sacrificing their instructional soundness.
Based on the TD@Work that Wendy Gates Corbett published for ATD in February 2016 (5 Questions for Great Presentation Visuals)
This workshop elaborates on the questions and processes in the TD@Work: Why should I represent my message visually?, which ideas should I represent visually?, what does the concept look like?, how do I want my audience to feel?, and where do I find great images? The workshop includes individual and group activities and participants can bring their laptops and use their own presentations as well.
At the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Apply the 3-step process for evaluating the key ideas in a presentation and identifying which ideas to represent visually.
- Generate a plan for representing those key ideas visually and finding the right visuals for those ideas.
- Locate vibrant, compelling visuals for use in presentations by identifying safe, legal image sources inside their organization (if applicable) and outside their organization
