Important Notes

  • We will follow up with next steps, potential conflicts, and final confirmation
  • If you are using slides, please use either the PowerPoint Lightboard slide template or the Beamer (LaTeX) Lightboard presentation template or make sure your slides have a black background and use large, white text
  • Do not wear very light colored clothing (these colors will make text difficult to read)
  • Do not wear clothing with text, logos, or complex patterns
  • The Lightboard format works best with carefully planned micro-lectures that are centered on a single topic
  • Preparing a simple script to help guide your Lightboard session will keep you on topic and efficient
