Learning Technology Fair Presenter's Guide
As a presenter, you will be sharing your experiences in the use of learning technologies for course development or classroom use. Presenters may focus on the specific technology, and/or how it was used or integrated into a curriculum.
The Fair is a drop-in event. Presenters man a table and answer questions while demonstrating their selected topic to Fair attendees.
Presenters will also create a single PowerPoint slide with a description of their presentation to be displayed at the Poster Gallery of Learning Technologies. It’s suggested that your poster include the following:
- Presentation title
- Selected technology
- How it was used in the classroom
- Links to additional information such as research, vendor information, etc.
- Your contact information
- QR code linking to additional information (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with QR codes)
Posters should be sized for 36" x 24" and can be either Portrait or Landscape orientation. To resize a slide within PowerPoint, in the top menu:
- Click Design / Slide Size / Custom Slide Size
- Width = 36 in (for Landscape) or 24 in (for Portrait)
- Height = 24 in (for Portrait) or 36 in (for Landscape)
- Then select the appropriate Orientation
