Creating Presentation Worthy of the TED Stage

Imagine you are giving the best presentation of your career. Your verbal delivery is captivating and masterfully choreographed with slide visuals and props that are attention grabbing, easy to understand, and even moving. This is what it means to use presentation visuals in a way that is “worthy of the TED stage.”

 

In this course, participants will learn about the common mistakes presenters make with their presentation visuals, gain insights into the way the human brain best processes information while experiencing a presentation, leverage visual techniques for making your content resonate and stick, use next-level techniques to plan a visual presentation, analyze examples from some of the world’s best presenters, and apply key design principles.

 

This course is helpful for both novice and even highly seasoned presenters. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop to this session to engage in hands-on design work activities in small groups.

Collaboratory for Women Innovators: Startup Roadmap Program

Do you have an innovative idea or an early stage startup that has potential as scalable venture? Do you want to see if your research has commercial potential? Then this program may be for you!  

 

The Startup Roadmap provides an interactive, high-energy hands-on environment to roll up your sleeves and discover the business value proposition for your idea—and much more. Startup Roadmap uses a dynamic coaching format with the proven “So what? who cares? why you?®” methodology and tools from wendykennedy.com (WKI).

 

You will work collaboratively with a coach in weekly, small-group sessions to apply a business-focused lens to your idea and assess your readiness for the next stage of development—whether it’s incubation, licensing, or partnerships. At the end of the program, participants will have developed a commercialization roadmap to help launch their venture successfully, plus a pitch presentation deck for investors and other appropriate audiences.

 

Open to all! Meets once per week beginning February 2019.

Workshop and Speaker Series in the Humanities

The Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere solicits proposals from faculty, curators, and graduate students who wish to organize one-day events or longer-running programs, especially ones that require collaboration between groups of faculty or students. The goals of the events are to present scholarship, foster the exchange of interpretations and ideas, and make these accessible to an audience coming from a variety of disciplines as well as the wider public.

 

We envision that organizers will tackle their subjects from more than one disciplinary perspective in or related to the humanities (as defined on the Humanities Center’s website). The Center expects to be able to fund up to five awards of up to $5,000 each.  

 

Deadline to apply: January 18, 2019

Team Teaching from Classroom to Gallery

Have you ever thought about team-teaching a course at UF? Collaboration can energize our teaching just as it does our research. Through team-teaching, faculty are creating innovative undergraduate courses that would be impossible for a single faculty member to teach independently. Some of these courses collaborate across academic disciplines, while others collaborate with UF Libraries or the Harn Museum of Art. Some do both.

 

This workshop features two team-taught courses that collaborated with the Harn: Women Writers & Classical Myths, and What Makes a Monster. Learn more about team teaching in collaborative spaces and start planning your adventure. A follow-up workshop on the nuts and bolts of developing a team-taught class will be held on February 22nd, 2019.

 

Presented by Marsha Bryant (Professor & Distinguished Teaching Scholar, English), Mary Ann Eaverly (Professor & Chair, Classics), Nina Stoyan-Rosenzweig (Senior Associate in Libraries, Health Science Center Libraries), Carol McCusker (Curator of Photography, Harn), and Eric Segal (Director of Education and Curator of Academic Programs, Harn).
