March 2019

Thursday, March 14, 2:00pm - 3:00pm CST | 4 Strategies To Enhance Your Presentation Skills: The Academic’s Guide 

Online Registration                                                                                                                                                              

In this webinar from Innovative Educators, you’ll learn how to avoid “death by presentation” and get your audience members—whether they are students, colleagues, campus leaders, or conference-session participants—engaged, enthused, and eager to learn more about your ideas. Each of these key strategies is backed by the cognitive neuroscience of how human beings learn. While we won’t dive as deep as, say, the acetylcholine and norepinephrine uptake pathways in the nucleus accumbens, we will tie each of the best practices to brain science and uncover why certain approaches lead to greater listener retention and engagement.
