Teaching Excellence Seminar:
Presentations that "Wow"
Hendrikus (Hennie) van Bulck , Division of Business Administration and Economics, USC Sumter
Friday, March 18, 2011, 10:10 a.m. - 12:00 noon
Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511
As we try to make our presentations more engaging to our students, we run the risk of overloading them with clutter. This workshop will emphasize replacing clutter in presentations with creative “wow” techniques. The session will begin with a discussion of methods for recording classes, including video cameras, Camtasia software and Adobe Connect. Methods to efficiently edit video files and save them to Blackboard will be shared. Suggestions for “dos” and “don’ts” for PowerPoint transitions, backgrounds, media and linked objects will be offered. Through a discussion that highlights what works and what doesn’t, participants become better able to provide effective combinations of video and PowerPoint for attention-grabbing presentations, whether their students are online or in the classroom.
