Description:
Most of us who teach or present on a regular basis use PowerPoint or other presentation software. Instead of writing lecture notes and writing on the board, we present a series of slides. This technology has real promise, but it has real problems as well. We've all been to lectures and presentations that consisted of sitting in a darkened room listening to a lecturer or presenter reading bullet points off a series of densely packed slides. Surely we can do better. In this presentation, I'll share some tips and tricks I've found helpful in preparing effective slides for classes and meetings. We'll look at creative ways to enhance straightforward presentations. We'll look at slides that use embedded sound and video files and the creative use of images. We'll look at good and bad uses of transitions and animations. And we'll discuss the many cases in which the best slide is simply no slide at all.
Goals and Target Audience:
This presentation is intended for people who use PowerPoint or other presentation software on a regular basis—course lecturers and people who give regular presentations—and people who are interested in the use of technology in teaching.
