Effective Education for Disaster Risk Reduction - Learning Matters.
Yesterday I gave a presentation to a joint STREVA (Strengthening Risk in Volcanic Areas) and EWF (Earthquakes Without Frontiers) as part of the Increasing Resilience to Natural Hazards initiative at University College London - the picture to the left! In order to engage my audience with the subject matter I used prezi presentation software instead of the usual (Death By) Powerpoint. The presentation itself was only 20 minutes but sparked a 20 minute Q&A which I hope was a sign that the ideas and execution were well received! Using this type of software can be a hindrance as well as a help but as I used it I began to grow in confidence and became more adept at using so there was less 'whizzing around' the presentation. I am attaching a screen grab below for you to enjoy and to get your own ideas! If you click on the image it will take you to the presentation as stupid and overpriced Ning won't allow me to do this...
