Description

Complex messages do not necessarily have to be complicated.

This two-day weekend course will concentrate on visual display of information using Microsoft Word and PowerPoint software.

Participants will be introduced to fundamentals of graphic design and information architecture and consequently learn to present data in a hierarchized, structured and visually accessible manner.

Short practical exercises involving work with text and imagery will result in production of a final Word and PowerPoint presentation containing legibly and concisely arranged information.

The course is open to everyone wishing to explore Word and PowerPoint as tools for comprehensive presentations. You do not need to be fluent in these programmes to attend the course however you will need basic computer skills.
