Date/Time
19 Jan, Friday, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Venue
NUS, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, LT10 (Besides Arts Canteen)
Description

Speaker: Professor Deborah Lupton, Centenary Research Professor, News and Media Research Centre, Faculty of Arts & Design & Leader, Smart Technology Living Lab, University of Canberra; Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences & Co-Leader, Digital Data & Society Consortium, Australia

Digital technologies have risen to meet the challenge of delivering better healthcare, containing medical costs and getting people to engage more actively in the promotion of health, fitness, well-being as well as self-care for chronic conditions. In medical journals, public health literature, industry forums and ministries, discussion has been intense, but mired in an overly utopian and individualistic approach to digital health technologies. In this talk, Professor Deborah Lupton will outline what defines critical digital health studies, in which the socio-cultural, ethical and political implications are identified. She will then delve into her current research, and share some ideas to shape the future of digital health studies.

Workshop: Advanced PowerPoint - The Master Class

Date/Time
22 Jan, Monday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Computer Lab
Description

This course teaches PowerPoint mastery for medical and life science communication. While PowerPoint is widely known, it is also widely underused and misused, leading to text-heavy, visually complex, and bullet-filled presentations. These problems generally stem from a lack of knowledge on how to present complex or dynamic data. The course will cover advanced PowerPoint features such as information overlay, animated chart, motion path, figure redraw with Bezier tool, synchronization of image with video, as well as the use of third party (free) software to allow detailed image manipulation and presentation.
