This workshop will address copyright issues faced by academic instructors, especially those related to sharing materials in course management systems such as Blackboard. We will discuss the basics of copyright law, when materials can be freely used for educational purposes, and when you are required to obtain copyright permission. Methods for retaining rights as an author will also be covered.
Are you aware of your patients' ability to understand and act on the information you give them? There is evidence that health care providers overestimate what patients are able to understand. Low health literacy is associated with higher mortality, higher rates of hospitalization and readmission, and poor self-management skills for chronic disease. This workshop covers the basics of health literacy & clear communication including tools that will assist you in creating easy-to-read materials. The last half-hour of the workshop will provide an optional hands-on opportunity to put difficult medical jargon into plain language.
This introductory workshop will cover the elements of effective graphic design. Attendees will learn how content, slide composition, color, and font choices combine to make PowerPoint presentations more visually impactful, understandable and memorable.
