This more informal online session explores and discusses key aspects of social media, its use, and the challenges with it when working within public institutions, like government and NGO offices.  While the topics will vary, an initial topic suggestion will focus on three design aspects of effective presentations: crafting the story (What), simplicity or why it matters (Why), and presentation design principles and techniques (How). These three aspects will be supplemented by the instructor by using social media to help augment content delivery, while highlighting common mistakes made during presentations. It will also highlight message delivery styles, as well as examine students’ own perception of content delivery. This session will help ensure students are prepared for a high quality and effective project presentation.
