    You are invited to a free APA Convention Continuing Education (CE) Session

    Designing and Delivering Quality Educational Presentations

    Who Should Attend
    This workshop is for professionals who deliver educational programs that include presentations.

    While historically there has been a wide and consistent practice of having an expert deliver presentations by conveying information verbally, recent research on best practices in education suggests there are many ways to improve learning outcomes from presentations. Best practices can be incorporated into presentations beginning with their development and design and continuing through delivery, evaluation and subsequent revisions to create a transformative learning experience. This workshop will introduce a range of practices to improve educational presentations to maximize participant learning.

    Time & Place
    August 7, 9:00 – 11:50 a.m.
    Marriott Marquis, Treasury Room, Meeting Level 4

    A. Jordan Wright, PhD
    Chair, Continuing Education Committee

    Greg Neimeyer, PhD
