A friend of mine here at Wash U, Liz Dorland, shares all her talks. She works on effective science teaching, so I refer to her talks often. Liz uses Slideshare for this. Since she discovered it, it might be good if I use her words for it:
“Actually, Slideshare doesn’t require you to login to view. You can also click to view full screen, and the links in it are live.
You can also download a copy directly from the same webpage. It’s too big to email, so that’s the best option.
This page has all 20+ of my slideshare uploads going back quite a few years.
I’m a huge Slideshare fan. You can find presentations on just about subject you want, and it’s great for students to share their work or to get ideas.”
I can’t say I’ve researched this very much, or that I’m aware of other such services, but I like this one so far. I’m going to start putting talks here. Thus far I’ve only put three up. One is on how I made the transition from wasps to social amoebae. One is on creativity in research. One is on women’s and minority issues.
I would love to put up more of my talks, including the ones I used to use in classes before I jettisoned that approach. I’ll just have to be sure I don’t violate other people’s copyrights too much with the images!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all shared our talks and images?
