Presenter's Toolbox: Leading a Workshop
Managing Your Workshop--The Cycle
- Get topic approved by directors Barbara Draude and Faye Johnson
- Download & submit the presentation form so that we know how to support you and how
to describe your workshop or just contact the center.
- Center publicizes your workshop on its web site, listserv, newsletter, flyers.
If desired, the Center can make copies of your materials if received a week before
event. The Center will keep you informed of registrations.
Support for Your Workshop--The Center
All of the LT&ITC staff are experienced with presentations and familiar with various
computer programs for building them. With reasonable notice, we can--
- Build a powerpoint presentation from your notes & instructions.
- Recommend and gather supporting visuals and handouts from our files, library, or academic
- Copy, collate, bind, set up.
- Create handouts, secure special display materials and equipment.
Tips for a Great Workshop
Based on workshop feedback, keep in mind that--
- Audiences like to do something--talk, do an exercise or activity
- Participants will come from many different departments and will ask you how your
information applies to other them.
- Handouts help--we can put some together, supplement yours, etc.
Presentations are a way for you to meet faculty from all over campus, establish a
reputation, demonstrate expertise and collegiality. And they can be a lot of fun--you're
free to be as creative and original as you want!
