Presenting new material to students is always a challenge. How do we keep and focus their attention? How do we create slides that are stimulating rather than soporific? And how can we compete with the constant stream of digital entertainment available to our students? 

One way is to emphasize engagement over presentation.

Through discussion and hands-on activities, we will consider strategies - both digital and analog - for making presentations interactive, memorable, and clear. These techniques will include storytelling, asking questions, and using PowerPoint to its full potential.
