Multimedia workshop planned
To help people keep up with advances in multimedia technology, the University is offering a three-day workshop entitled "Cutting-Edge Presentations: An Introduction to Digitized Video & Computer-Based Presentation Techniques." The workshop is designed for both novice and experienced computer users, to learn how to use the latest visual techniques in their presentations.
Participants will have the opportunity to record visual and audio clips on CD-ROM and save them for future use.
"Cutting-Edge Presentations" is taught by chemistry professor Robert G. Michel. He has extensive experience in the use of multimedia presentation techniques and has given over 100 seminars on his research interests and on multimedia tools. Participants can choose to have a follow-up consultation with Michel after completing the workshop.
"Cutting-Edge Presentations" is sponsored by the chemistry department, in conjunction with the Center for Professional Development, Division of Extended and Continuing Education. The workshop will be held on November 12, 13 and 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., in the multimedia facility in the Department of Chemistry at Storrs. Discounts are available to University faculty and staff and to companies sending three or more participants. Classroom seating is limited. Register by calling (800) 622-9905.
