Last week I prepared a new presentation for the MichMATYC conference based partially on the literature review for my dissertation. In my dissertation I am studying instructors, but in this talk I addressed both the instructor and the student side. It was also the first presentation I’ve built using Prezi, and it was interesting to re-think presentation design using a new tool. Of course, the presentation misses something without the accompanying verbal descriptions, but there is enough information on here that you can begin to understand the problem (we don’t actually know much) and the solution (common language, common measurement tools).
There are also a few new cartoons/illustrations in this presentation. I’ve started just paying for a couple of illustrations per presentation to help viewers to understand (and mostly to remember) difficult concepts. Just to give you a rough idea in the time involved to create something like this, I spent about 18 hours on the Prezi build (which doesn’t even begin to account for the time spent doing the research).
