Create professional lecture material

Documentation from Lunch 'n' Learn 9 April 2024

Published Apr 25, 2024

A well-designed and structured presentation affects the audience's/viewer's cognitive ability to process the information, according to Richard E. Mayer, educational psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Visual communication and the use of visual materials are also a kind of shortcut to deep learning. How can you utilize these principles when designing your lecture material? That's what this webinar is about.

About the webinar

In this webinar, we base our discussion on principles of multimedia learning and cognitive processing as we demonstrate how to design your materials to optimize them for your target audience. The webinar begins with a presentation of E-learning at KTH. Following that, various design principles based on Richard Mayer's book 'Multimedia Learning' are presented, including how to structure and organize content, as well as the use of visual materials and images in presentations. We also cover useful resources in PowerPoint and provide tips for recording and editing video in PowerPoint.
