Good Design Matters: Engage your audience and improve learning with powerful presentations

Good design builds trust and tells your audience something about your content, but most importantly, it communicates about YOU as the presenter. Leverage the look and feel of your presentation to make your content easy to understand, visually appealing, and promote engagement. In this presentation, we will cover design elements and storyboard techniques that will improve learning and capture your audience. Walk away with a list of recommended resources and a design principles and elements handout.

Learning Objectives

  • Why care about design when creating presentations?
  • What is the storyboard process for developing and designing powerful presentations?
  • What are good design principles and elements?
