Play the episode (mp3, 1 hour 10 minutes)

Jason, Rachel, and Anna are joined by the fabulous Maurice Coleman, author of the Chronicles of of the (almost) Bald Technology Trainer and the Technical Trainer at Harford County (MD) Public Library. We discuss effective PowerPoint techniques, PowerPoint best practices, and even some speaker training tips (e.g., pecha kucha, lightning talks, etc.).

Links to some of the things we mentioned during the show (as well as a little of what we forgot to mention):
Also: If you can, please contribute to the LSW's fundraising effort for the Louisville Free Public Library's flood recovery. If you can't donate financially, you can help by spreading the word.

Join us for future episodes! If you’re interested, please post a comment on the Adventures in Library Instruction blog or email us! We’ll do it as a Skype discussion or you can record a segment all on your own.


  1. Yes - at Immersion they do still focus on presentation/teaching styles & techniques (and being student-centered and "authentic") in Teacher Track. I just got back from it a couple weeks ago. Thanks for another great podcast folks!

  2. Dana, good to hear! It was, yet another, great workshop to have when I attended back in the day!!!
