Presentations and Public Speaking

Presenting work is a critical skill for students in the communications industry.  These presentations by Carl Kwan take students through the process of applying four design principles (Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity) to slideshow presentations.  As these principles are familiar to students, they can focus on how they are applied in the delivery of the presentation and the design of the slideshow.  The modeling of what to put on the screen and how to talk about it directs students away from the model of presenting in which the speaker simply restates the content of each visual.
