I’ve been working on a brief fifteen minutes sense of place presentation for a conference in a couple of weeks. Most of what I focus on is images, and after going over this a couple of times. I really notice that my font choice needs a lot of work (that will come in the next two weeks for sure).
Regardless it’s allowed me to really think out what I believe and try to condense that down into fifteen minutes and I need to entertain other educators as well. The process is really helpful and this is now my fourth presentation and I can feel my story becoming more focused and clear.
One of the benefits of me doing an image focused slide show is that it helps me tell a story, and the images work with the words to create some new neural pathways. One of the detriments is that it doesn’t make much sense without the story. However, I’ll embed it anyway.
Deep learners is one of my favourite conferences because after the two fifteen minute sessions people choose what they want to spend an hour on in the afternoon. So the deep dive will be more hands-on based where we can try to sell our favourite places, and maybe dig into some conservation photography.
