Great Room, 19 University Place
In collaboration with the Graduate School of Arts & Science, this workshop will help you refine your digital presentation skills. Despite being the most common visual aid to presentations, PowerPoint and other slideshows can not only bore your audience, but distract them from your content and hinder their understanding. In this practical workshop, you will learn how to design engaging and effective slide presentations. The second half of this workshop will be dedicated to your questions and refining your own presentations; students are highly encouraged to bring your own materials and tough design challenges for us to solve together! This workshop is open to all GSAS students and will cover a variety of examples from across disciplines.

In collaboration with the Graduate School of Arts & Science, this workshop is a hands-on exploration of the problem-solving process called “design-thinking.” Focused on listening, user empathy, whole-brain thinking, collaboration, and experimentation, design thinking can be applied in any field – across arts + humanities, the social sciences, and sciences.
Join us to learn the basics of this creative approach to critical thinking! We will learn the design-thinking process as we use it to solve a practical challenge. This workshop is open to all GSAS students, no prior knowledge necessary.
