Fundamentals of Informative Presentations

One of the biggest challenges online presenters face is understanding the difference between informing and persuading, as well as understanding the basic process for crafting and structuring a strong presentation. In response to this need, I developed the following series on informative speaking. Here are two examples.

Part Two

Rhetoric and Persuasion  Lecture Series

In order to fulfill a need I noted in my online classes for more in-depth content but still maintain my Zen/Slide:ology approach to visual aids, I developed a multi-part series on persuasion using the same notes I use in class. I’ve since abandoned some of this approach in my on campus class, so it’s time to record a new online series. In the meantime, here are a few samplings from the series.

Introduction to Rhetoric

Persuasive Claims

Visual Design Series

I created this series of visuals as a means of helping my students better understand the visual design principles I cover over the course of eight hours on campus.
