Title

Abstract (Rationale / Background / Purpose)

Rationale / Background:

Electronic presentations are an important component of scientific communication in the health professions. Reviews and audits of short and long presentations at a variety of levels by professional presenters, educators and trainees show poor skills in preparation of 'slides'. In more than 55%, the character of text, background, animatios and placements of logos detract from the quality of otherwise well - presented presentations. In up to 60% image optimization and control is poor. There is a role for faculty development, defined instruction of trainees and peer-to-peer promotion to improve the quality of presentations.

Learning Objectives:

At the end o fthis workshop participants will be able to:

1) describe the current status of text and image use in electronic presentations

2) demonstract ten technical skills in optimizing text and images for presentation

3) present a strategy to train others

Instructional Methods:

The workshop leaders will present findings from an audit of presentations and lead a large group discussion of the relevance of these findings. Techniques to improve text and optimize images will be examined using the "think, pair, share" technique. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in the modification of a standardized set of slides to learn the techniques discussed. Small and large group discussions will be used to identify strategies to train others. Considerations of different types of presentations will be discussed during the workshop. Participants will leave the workshop with a set of techniques to create better slides and ideas to disseminate this information to others.
