Online Workshop: Effective Slide Design – 26 October 2016

(PGT – Online) Effective Slide Design

  • Wednesday 26 October @ 19:00- 20:00

Most of us use slides in our presentations, whether these are for short departmental meetings or major presentations at international conferences.  However, one of the commonest features of all presentations is poor slide design.  Our slides are visualbook aids to help our audience understand and follow what we are saying.  Unfortunately, the slides presenters use are often overcrowded, difficult to see and badly designed.   As visual aids they fail both visually and as aids for the audience.

Using lots of examples, the session facilitator, Allan Gaw, will introduce participants to the acronym SWIPE and show how its component parts can be used to help us design clean, simple slides that will serve us best as great visual aids.

After this online session each participant should:

  • be aware of the main problems in slide design
  • be familiar with the concept of SWIPE in slide design
  • understand how to make your slides both visually appealing and useful to your audience
  • have a simple strategy for producing effective slides for any presentation
