« back to classes page
As an OLLI member or coordinator, have you ever wondered how you can increase the understanding of and add “pizazz” to your discussion with your study group? Or better yet, have an outline at your fingertips to move you effortlessly as you facilitate? By mastering just a few basic steps to create a slide presentation, you can laser-focus the attention of your audience. Discover how to easily incorporate photos, articles, video, audio and animation. Come join our 7-week study group to improve your communication skills
and become a more effective presenter. Each weekly session will focus on one or two aspects of slide presentation software. Then practice at home, and prepare a short 2–4 slide presentation to the class. Requirements are: (1) PC or Apple computer (portable, desktop or iPad); or Chromebook. (2) Access to and Canvas. PC users need the PowerPoint program; Mac users need the PowerPoint or Keynote program. Note: This study group will run during the first seven weeks of the semester.

* NOTE: Participants may register for this study group alone or in combination with a second 7-week study group. Registering for up to two 7-week study groups counts as one study group choice on your membership package, but it must be done through the OLLI office. Please indicate your choice(s) on your registration form. 7-week study groups include the following: Fostering Civic Engagement through the Creative Arts II; Our Declaration; Make Powerful OLLI Presentations; Fiction Writing Workshop I or II; Strangers in Their Own Land; Chamber Music Masterpieces for Larger Ensembles.
