As teams will be presenting their Visualization Projects in class this week, this blog entry will be discussing ‘presentations’.
A presentation is typically defined as a ‘performance’, a speech, an engaging activity between speaker(s)/presenter(s) and audiences or a lecture/class/teaching. Put simply, it’s the act of bringing knowledge forth to a group of individuals via various methods. These methods could include powerpoint presentations, infographs, projected notes or written texts.
However, long gone are the days where ‘presentations’ are stopped at the door of a conference hall or a presentation room. Nowadays, I find we’re constantly ‘presenting’ information. In the digitalized age of social media websites and online forums, information is constantly coming forth, flooding the world relentlessly. The only time this information is ever ‘presented’ is when it is made known to a reader or an audience member in a clear and concise manner.
Information that is ‘presented’ collects crucial data; analyzes and organizes it into a coherent style so readers can efficiently grasp it.
