On Wednesday, November 13 at 2:30 pm, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate Student Digital Humanities Group will host a workshop, “Using Prezi for Visual Composition and Dynamic Electronic Posters.”
The workshop leader, Kimon Keramidas, Assistant Professor and Director for the Digital Media Lab at the Bard Graduate Center, will teach graduate students how to use the innovative presentation tool for designing robust visual compositions and posters.
You may be familiar with Prezi’s innovative format for making visually compelling presentations that break free of PowerPoint’s slide-based format. But as Prof. Keramidas recently wrote in a Prof. Hacker blog in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Prezi’s “nearly infinite digital canvas and easy-to-use design features makes for a powerful and highly accessible tool for developing thought maps, prototyping designs for digital interfaces and physical spaces, creating bespoke visualizations, and as a platform for comparative visual analysis and annotation.”
This workshop is open to all graduate students. In particular Teaching Assistants and those presenting at Communitas in 2014 will be encouraged to attend. It is our hope that teachers will introduce Prezi into their classroom as a teaching and composition tool, and that students participating in Communitas will consider using Prezi to create dynamic electronic posters.
