IAP Workshop: Increasing Presentation Effectiveness

February 1, 2018, 2-4 p.m.

Part of the MIT Can Talk series, open to the MIT-community.

When learning something for the first time, hearing the information once is not enough. One must be exposed to the information multiple times and in different ways in order to master the new knowledge. In this workshop participants will discuss the importance of presenting information through multiple modes and how to address multiple learning styles while presenting to a wide range of audiences. We will explore classroom teaching, research presentations, and museum exhibits in terms of how they can more effectively educate their target audiences.


Take part in a series of six independent IAP workshop sessions on public speaking during the last week of IAP. The sessions are meant to be practical and interactive, and are open to all members of the MIT community. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Pre-registration is encouraged but drop-ins are welcome if space is available.

* Participants of this session are encouraged to take part in the “MIT Can Talk” oratory competition on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3 at the MIT Museum (see IAP listing for more details).
