Unfortunately, I missed the International EM Teaching course held in Baltimore, Maryland this past week. I hear that Michelle Lin and Stacey Poznanski held an amazing workshop on Resuscitating Powerpoint Slides.
They held a competition for the most improved slides based on some of Mayer’s principles of multimedia learning. You can see the “before and after” slides at: http://academiclifeinem.com/powerpoint-slide-redesign-best-examples-from-iemtc13-workshop/
Fortunately, I will get a chance to work with them and Dr. Robert Tubbs to do a Presentation Design Bootcamp at the 2014 CORD meeting in New Orleans.
Still jealous though…
