Putting the Power in PowerPoint


Proceedings Home W2W Home

Presentations are an important part of our outreach. Have you ever created a powerpoint that just didn’t land with your audience? Looking to revamp your process but don’t have time to squeeze it into your busy schedule? This presentation will provide practical ways you can create more powerful powerpoints when time is of the essence. It will highlight color choice, questions to ask yourself as you develop your deck, and the assertion-evidence based approach to slide development. You’ll also hear about where you can go to find more information on creating impactful presentations. Have a slide or two you’re really struggling with? Send it to callie.herron@ces.uwex.edu and you could be selected to collaborate on a before and after example for this session.

Using Your Smartphone As a Tool for Live Streaming and Capturing Video In the Field

w2w17 logoProceedings Home | W2W Home

This workshop will introduce tips and equipment for using a smartphone or tablet to obtain live video in the field, whether from workshops, farm visits, demonstrations, field days, or research plots. Microphones, tripod mounts, and apps will be discussed. An emphasis will be on equipment that can be stored and carried around with minimal planning yet still provide good quality.

The second half of the workshop will look at live-streaming options and reasons to consider live-streaming for Extension work. The similarities and differences between live-streaming options will be discussed. as will tips for quality production ad handling common problems. We will actually transmit a live video on one or more (as time allows) of these live services to demonstrate the process.

  • if it is timely and relevant capture it any way you can, don’t worry if you left your microphone at the office

tips for field video

  • do a test and listen/view
  • be aware of background (limping cow story)
  • obtain a written release or ask person at start of recording if it OK (and keep that permission for future reference)

tips for live streaming

  • OBTAIN PERMISSION AHEAD OF TIME – especially if you are at a private farm or recording wasn’t expected (it may be different for a conference or public event)
  • do a test run from the site to assess connectivity, but expect connection issues
  • ignore trolls, be ready to ban or block if necessary
  • don’t worry about perfection but instead strive to relate to your audience
  • plan ahead and promote and ask others to help promote the event
  • if spontaneous, decide if you need the recording (that will affect how you set up or which live-streaming option you choose)
