As librarians, we often create and deliver presentations. From library instruction to general presentations on services and resources, our overall goal is to ensure the audience learns something new and will remember the new information after the presentation is over. Yet, we know participants often do not remember the content of presentations, no matter how interested in the topic. Why does our audience forget what we tell them? This presentation offers some tips on how to improve the recall of presentations and how these tips may apply to the library setting. Primarily focusing on practical design elements for presentations and key ways of improving learning, the presenter hopes to help you create memorable presentations for your learners.
