Title: Transforming Your Course Evaluations Process with AI to Be More Future-Proof

Abstract: With the vast amount of student data generated by course evaluations, more and more Higher Education Institutions are harnessing the power of AI to derive actionable insights that were once elusive. AI-powered tools like Explorance MLY can sift through student feedback, uncovering nuanced patterns, sentiments, and trends that inform more effective pedagogical strategies.

In this session, we explore the role of AI in tailoring educational experiences. Specifically, we’ll examine how predictive analytics identify at-risk students and enable timely interventions to ensure their success. Also, discover how personalized course recommendations and resources based on past evaluations and individual learning styles reshape curricula.

If your proposal is selected, the conference registration fee will be waived for each presenter. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

4. Ten Tips for Preparing Your Presentation

Below are some tips based on the feedback from past Explorance user conference attendees.

Tip 01
Start with a Clear Message: Define your presentation's main message or key takeaway. This should be a concise statement that guides the entire presentation.
Tip 02
Simplicity is Key: Avoid clutter. Each slide should focus on one main point. Simple, uncluttered slides are easier for the audience to follow.
Tip 03
Limit Text: Keep text on slides to a minimum. Use bullet points, keywords, and short phrases rather than lengthy paragraphs. Your slides should support your spoken words, not replace them.
Tip 04
Visuals Matter: Use high-quality images, graphics, and charts to convey your points. Visuals can make complex concepts easier to understand and more engaging. (If you’re using screenshots from Explorance Solutions, including Blue, MTM, or MLY, contact us for high-quality versions).
Tip 05
Consistent Design: Maintain a consistent design throughout your presentation. Use the same fonts, colors, and layout to create a cohesive and professional look. (Explorance will provide a PPT template to all presenters).
Tip 06
Consider Accessibility: Make your presentation accessible by using readable fonts, good color contrast, and providing alternative text for images.
Tip 07
Explorance Product: If your presentation mentions an Explorance product or feature, briefly describe what it is to help the audience.
Tip 08
Audience-Centered: Always consider your audience's perspective. What will be most valuable or interesting to them? Tailor your content to your specific audience.
Tip 09
Inserting Videos: Make sure your video is in a compatible format like MP4, choose auto-play and looping options, position it thoughtfully, and test it on your presentation equipment to ensure it plays smoothly and audibly. Additionally, consider using slide transitions to integrate the video seamlessly.
Tip 10
Leave Room for Questions: Allocate time for questions and discussion at the end. This shows you value your audience's input. Typically, presentations are 30 minutes long, with approximately 10 minutes for questions and answers.
