Impact of federal agencies on the professional development of early-career underrepresented minority faculty in the geosciences
American Geosciences Institute
In April 2012, the American Geosciences Institute and the National Academy of Engineering held a workshop for underrepresented minorities pursuing faculty and academic geoscience careers. All participants were either in their final years of pursuing a Ph.D., in a post-doc position or recently hired faculty members.

Attendees at the workshop completed a total of six surveys — one before the workshop, one immediately after the workshop and again at three, six, 10 and 13 months following the workshop. In all six surveys, attendees were asked to rate themselves on five characteristics related to the workshop sessions, estimate how frequently they do certain activities and rate their confidence in doing those same activities.

No more lousy PowerPoint slides
The Geological Society of America
Too many PowerPoint and other visual presentations are positively lousy. The graphics or the text on the slides are illegible. Illustrations directly imported into PowerPoint from a printed page or the Internet are routinely lousy, especially if two or more such illustrations are placed on a single slide. The most effective slides are those expressly crafted for a visual presentation. However, remedial techniques can make published illustrations effective. The key to creating effective slides is to make both images and text sufficiently large and simple.
