Communicating Your Message with PowerPoint: Livening Up Your Presentations

Learn about using PowerPoint clearly and persuasively.


Come to this workshop to explore how well–designed PPT graphics and animations can take you beyond linear presentations, how limiting text avoids information overload, and how creating compelling presentations can effectively engage your audience and emphasize you and your message rather than your slides.

Please note: This workshop is not an introduction to the mechanics of the program; it is instead about using PowerPoint effectively in presentations.

Intended Audience

Any undergraduate, graduate, or faculty writer interested in learning to write more effective PowerPoint slide shows.
