(Science Daily) Video Captions Improve Comprehension

A simple change -- switching on captions -- can make a big difference when students watch educational videos, an SF State professor has discovered.

Robert Keith Collins, an assistant professor of American Indian studies, found that students' test scores and comprehension improved dramatically when captions were used while watching videos. The tool is often utilized for students with learning disabilities, but Collins says his results show captions can be beneficial to all students.

Why you must be hand in glove with your potential participants

Attracting participants to conferences is one of the main challenges for all event organizers. What can help is making your event client-oriented and “exclusive”. Interesting topics, discussions of vital issues, famous speakers and thought-leaders, unusual event format... Right. But I'd like to focus on one of the best motivators for people to attend an event, that is personal engagement in preparation of this event. Conferences are organized for attendees, so that they get answers to their professional questions, share ideas and opinions, meet peers.

ecturing.professor.jpg Another sign that the college lecture might be dying: Harvard University physics professor Eric Mazur is championing the "flipped classroom," a model where information traditionally transferred during lectures is learned on a student's own time, and classroom time is spent discussing and applying knowledge to real-world situations.

4 Best Practices for Getting Presenters to Submit Their Materials

When it comes to getting things done on time, it’s not easy. It’s in our nature to wait until the last minute to do even the most important things like Christmas shopping or doing our taxes. And, there are many things in life we commit to, yet don’t follow through on such as: helping people move, paying bills on time or just walking the dog. We’re human, what can you expect?

Kinesthetic Modeling:Whole Body VizThink

I’ve seen John Ward do his magic with models and clay but this year at VizThink in San Jose the core message really sank in. It had to do with the way our body uses imagery in its core processing. It’s an understanding that is at the heart of why graphic facilitation works and how to deepen its impact.

John ran a session at VizThink titled “Kinesthetic Modeling: Visual Thinking in 3 Dimensions” along with fellow facilitators Regina Rowland, Nick Payne, and Julie Gieseke—all skilled graphic facilitators.

Six Minutes Speaking and Presentation Skills

Six Minutes Speaking and Presentation Skills is a website with lots of resources for speakers. It is maintained by Andrew Dlugan, a Canadian speaker, trainer and coach. 

Dlugan is not a 'quick fixer', his information is sound and considered and as far as I can tell, in every way in line with current knowledge and science about what makes a good presentation.

He also publishes critiques of video recorded speeches, a very effective way to learn good speaking skills. There is also a form and some good advice on how to do your own critiques.
