Workshop: Advanced PowerPoint - The Master Class

Date/Time
09 Jul, 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.

Workshop: Presenting Conference Papers

Date/Time
12 Jul, Thursday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6)
Description

This course tackles the three greatest obstacles a presenting scientist faces: fear, an over-technical text-heavy presentation, and less-knowledgeable-than-expect audience. Through systematically rooting out what lessens presentation impact, and preparing live delivery the presenting scientist acquires confidence in himself, fluidity in speech, and authority when handling questions.
