As an instructional technologist and librarian, I give a number of presentations to faculty and students in face-to-face and virtual formats. When designing presentations, I am certain to:
- Adhere to good graphic design principles
- Incorporate hands-on learning activities
- Add images, charts, illustrations, and media to aid visual learners
- Provide links to articles, websites, and other resources for future learning
The following presentations are a sample of the presentations I have give to students, faculty, and conference attendees in my various capacities.
Community of Inquiry Presentation
I delivered this presentation to a group of faculty members in August 2016 at South College, Knoxville, TN.
Infographics in Education Presentation
I delivered this presentation to South College Faculty in a monthly workshop in July 2016.
