About

The blog:

The Better Presenter blog provides news, tips and insights that will help you become a better presenter. Evolving out of the Learning Technologies Group’s original presentation workshops, Death By PowerPoint and Presentation Zen workshops, this blog is a close companion to our latest workshop of the same name- The Better Presenter. If you are interested in attending The Better Presenter workshop, please find links to our registration page below.

In this blog, we will discuss new techniques and identify examples of great presentations. We will share learning resources and incorporate the teachings of industry movers and shakers. But this is not a passive blog of static articles, it’s a collaboration space for the entire UCSF community, including students, faculty and staff. Please share your thoughts in the comments section below each post. We are also welcoming guest bloggers. If you have an idea or found something interesting to share, contact us and we’ll work with you to add it to the blog!

One thought on “About

  1. Good Stuff.
    I believe bridging the gap between audience and presenter is one key to being effective.

    Humor and/or a brief personal story–preferably related to the topic at hand–often help to relax the presenter as well as engage the audience. Especially if it occurs at the beginning or at a strategic point of the presentation to illustrate or emphasize a point or concept. It can help close the gap and engage the audience–making the transfer of information more effective.
