All of us have seen talks where the speaker uses slides. Some are great, and some are awful. Come and learn how to make great slide decks and how to avoid making awful ones. We will share a number of pieces of software that are easy to use and that can help you to improve your slide decks. We will also discuss best practices and dissect several short slide decks together. Next week there will be a follow-up, hands-on workshop on using the software Inkscape to create mathematical figures for talks, posters, and papers.
