Designing Successful Broadening Participation Programs Through Evidence-Based Approaches

This webinar session will challenge participants to incorporate evidence-based effective practices to design and/or assess hypothetical programs dedicated to broadening participation of underrepresented groups (broadly defined). In the context of facilitating teams in the development of ideas for funding, we are often familiar with effective practices and share them with program leaders and PIs developing programs. There are an increasing number of opportunities for funding and program development focused on broadening participation. This session will emphasize capturing diversity and inclusion programmatic elements and translating those elements so that program leaders and PIs can adapt and innovate in the context of their own program ideas.
Presenter: Alicia J. Knoedler, PhD

Preparing Conference Presentations, PowerPoints and Posters

For many of us, conference presentations cause worry and stress.  Yet, presenting in public does not have to be scary and can be very rewarding… and even fun! The purpose of this webinar is to present best practices for preparing presentations, slides and posters, to facilitate useful and effective presentations and interactions, whatever the medium. 

The webinar will be presented by Kari Whittenberger-Keith, PhD, and Jenna McGuire, MBA. Kari and Jenna have extensive experience in public speaking, speechwriting and effective communication.

We hope you will take advantage of this webinar to help make your presentations more effective, whether at the 2019 NORDP conference or in other venues.

Presenters:Kari Whittenberger-Keith, PhD; University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Jenna McGuire, MBA; The Ohio State University
