Last month I released a new online, self-paced workshop called Presentation Science: How to Help Your Audience to Engage, Learn, Remember, and Act. The workshop is comparable to a two-day workshop and comprises about 12.5 hours of work, including videos, scenario questions, reflection questions, discussions, and a final assessment.
People are beginning to “graduate” from the workshop. Here’s what the first two graduates had to say:
Powerful content here! I love this course. It’s the best online course I’ve taken–ever! I only see one problem with the course. You’ve set the price too low based on the actual value of the course! It’s worth much more than what you are charging, considering the quality. I’d set the price at $1,000 minimum personally! In my opinion, it is worth $10,000 in the first 6 months once a person has successfully applied this to build new trainings!

Will Thalheimer’s Presentation Science Workshop provides a TON of strategies, tactics, and tools backed up by learning science that will help you transform your bullet-riddled, mind-numbing PowerPoint presentations into meaningful, memorable, motivating, and (yes!) magnificent learning events.
— Holly H., senior instructional designer at global energy technology company
As you can imagine, I’m thrilled with this response. At the same time, I feel a responsibility to continue making the workshop better and better. At a later date–when I’ve gathered more data–I will write about how I think the new online-learning technologies are now poised to enable great learning designs. I’ll also talk about how to utilize these tools to follow research-inspired recommendations. For now, I’m just going to brag a bit! SMILE
And encourage you to consider taking this course for yourself, or recommending it to your organization, your subject-matter experts, trainers, teachers, professors, managers, salespeople, executives—anybody who has to give a presentation that has to be maximally effective.
