How to Make Your Presentation Slides Clear and Dynamic

On their own, oral presentations can sometimes feel dry and underwhelming. This workshop digs into how using slides to emphasize key points can enhance your presentation by making it more dynamic, interesting, and compelling. We will focus on three main areas of visual composition: incorporating graphics and animations; balancing text, image, and blank space; and connecting your message to the audience. While we will focus on using Google Slides, the core principles we discuss are relevant for all types of presentation software (e.g. PowerPoint, Prezi).
