NAECR Knowledge event highlights effective uses of Canva for researchers

Canva, an online graphic design platform used to create social media graphics and presentations, was the topic of discussion during the Nov. 15 NAECR Knowledge event.

To effectively share and communicate research across broad audiences relies not only on solid data, but also on eye-catching presentations

The Nov. 15 virtual NAECR Knowledge event focused on Canva, a free online graphic design tool that can be used to create presentations, flyers, social media graphics and more, and how to effectively use it to support and promote research through the development of high-quality, accessible materials.

Jemalyn Griffin, assistant professor of practice in advertising and public relations in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications, shared her expertise using Canva, and answered questions about the tool during and after the presentation.
