Title: "Designing an effective presentation"

Speaker: Richard McBride NEFSC FEMAD/PBB.

Date/time/location: March 18, 2015, noon, NEFSC Clark Conference Room

Summary: This talk will introduce the assertion-evidence approach to design a presentation for a formal seminar. This style was advocated by Michael Alley in his 2003 book: "The Craft of Scientific Presentations: Critical steps to succeed and critical errors to avoid" (http://www.writing.engr.psu.edu/csp.html ). Most of the book's points are translated into a PowerPoint presentation, which makes extensive use of Microsoft clip art and smart art features.
