The Learning Design Sprint

The Learning Design Sprint

The Learning Design Sprint: Instructional Design meets Design Thinking in a team process to rapidly create innovative learning solutions

Why are most presentations so bad? Truly terrible? They’re too wordy, text-based, and generally dull. They don’t tell stories that engage, excite, or inspire. And they generally do little to actually help people learn. They are linear and non-responsive, with no interaction. Pretty much everything you know doesn’t work to convey information effectively. Few people enjoy creating, delivering, or watching PowerPoint presentations, so let’s change that.

This session is packed full of techniques to create mind-blowing presentations. Want to know how to create visual slides? Manipulate images? Master animations? Make it interactive? And produce presentations that will astound your audience? Then come along for a masterclass in ways to capture your audience’s attention and help them learn.

Learning objectives:

  • Create visual slides using the full range of PowerPoint’s tools to generate your own graphics.
  • Use custom highlighting to focus attention and make your point clearly.
  • Tell compelling stories using animations, from simple to sophisticated.
  • Create interactive visual content to engage your audience, whether in person or online.
  • Develop navigable presentations so that you can respond to your audience.

Presenter:


Richard Goring
