  • Use lots of photos and minimal/bullet form text on your slides
  • If showing graphs, make sure you explain them
  • Avoid or be sure to define industry jargon and acronyms
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions (i.e., raise your hand if you’ve seen/heard of….)
  • Make connections between what is happening now and the future of the work
  • Encourage students to ask questions or consider new points of view
These students have chosen to be a part of the event and are excited to learn more about forest and wildlife from experts like you!

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s M├ętis Peoples have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for stewardship of the environment, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
