Crafting Presentations II: Clear Thinking Made Visual

February 24, 2015, 5:00-6:30 PM
Doherty Hall 2315 (note room change)

With every figure, slide, and talk, we are building a scientific case – perhaps for the existence of a particle, for the necessity of a policy, or simply for the validity of a control. Yet many of our common practices in presenting information actually obscure the case we’re making. In this workshop (designed for the AAAS 2015 conference), we will discuss fundamental principles for structuring information that apply at all scales, from the lone data figure to the entire talk. Attendees will learn how to apply principles of attention and visual design to turn presentations into what Edward Tufte calls "clear thinking made visible."

This is the second in a three-part series on preparing strong presentations for audiences outside your field.
