Presentations for Librarians: A Complete Guide to Creating Effective, Learner-Centred Presentations by Lee Andrew Hilyer, MLIS, M.Ed. ISBN: 1-84334-303-7. 2008. Available through Amazon.com. $69.95 Softcover; $99.95 Harcover

Summary:

“Recent research on learning from multimedia presentations has indicated that the current way many people prepare their slide presentations may actually hinder learning. Considering the ubiquity of the PowerPoint presentation in business and in education, presenters should be concerned whether or not their audience members are effectively receiving the information they wish to impart. This issue is of special import for librarians who teach, as they often must convey complex information in a very limited amount of time. Combining the best evidence on multimedia learning with real-world practical guidelines, this book aims to provide novice and expert presenters alike with the tools they need to ensure an effective, learner-centred presentation.”

In addition to detailing the best evidence for how to structure and deliver your presentations, the book contains extensive practical tips on working with Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and StarOffice Impress.
