The UCSF Library has launched a new blog called The Better Presenter. Inspired by the in-person workshop of the same name (formerly Presentation Zen), the blog provides news, tips, and insights to help UCSF faculty, students, and staff become more effective and engaging presenters. In the blog, we will discuss new techniques, identify examples of great presentations, share learning resources, and incorporate the teachings of industry movers and shakers.
The class schedule for January - March 2012 is now available. The Library continues to offer free training in PubMed@UCSF, Wiki@UCSF, EndNote, RefWorks, and the CLE.
In addition to these classes, UCSF students and personnel can register for multimedia and presentation workshops, such as:
