Prepare for Design Expo and other term-end presentations the right way — with peer support, pizza and support from dedicated library and writing center staff!

All workshops listed below will take place in the library’s East Reading Room from 4-5 p.m. Please register for sessions that interest you so we don’t order too much, or worse, too little pizza!

  • Tuesday, March 29 — Video Creating & Editing
    We’ll provide basic info on creating and editing more professional and accessible videos. The second half of the workshop will be devoted to open work time and questions.
  • Tuesday, April 5 — Explain Your Project to Anybody
    Practice talking about your design in a concise, easy-to-understand way so you’re ready to share at the Expo. Come prepared to answer a few questions about your design!
  • Thursday, April 7 — Communicate with Images & Visualizations
    Co-hosted with the Writing Center! Discover a range of tools and resources that will ensure your images and data are readable and appealing. The second half of the workshop will be devoted to open work time and questions.
  • Wednesday, April 13 — Explain Your Project to Anybody
    A skill so important we are holding the session twice! Come to one or both!
