Preparing and Delivering Slide-Illustrated Lectures

Tom Lang Communications and Training International

In this workshop, participants learn how to write and design slides, as well as how to give slide-illustrated lectures. Differences between articles, posters, and slides as forms of scientific communication are discussed, and the need to be aware of these differences is emphasized. Factors in choosing type fonts and size, color, position, and slide layout are identified, and both strong and weak examples are shown. The goals, options, and techniques for using the slides in oral workshops are also presented. (This workshop has some overlap with Writing Abstracts and Preparing Scientific Posters.)

The workshop is based on Chapter 13 of How to Write, Publish, and Present. An optional pre-workshop assignment adds 1.5 hours to the workshop.
