So, we’ve talked before about the challenges associated with academic presentations. I still struggle with the form—-15 minutes to try to squeeze in a whole research paper! Now I try to do much less. But, I am still looking for brilliant examples of strong academic presentations. (If you know any examples online, drop a link into the comments.) I just got a copy of Nancy Duarte’s book Slideology and must say that that the book has much that even a die-hard, Dad’s tie and powerpoint-using, 100 words per slide-cramming, directly-from-the-slide-reading academic might learn from. And, here’s the slideology blog with lots of helpful tips.
