  • Dual channelspeople have separate information processing channels for visual material and verbal material.
  • Limited capacitypeople can pay attention to only a few pieces of information in each channel at a time.Presentations must be both verbal and visual
  • Multimedia Effect: Narration with pictures (visuals) is better than narration alone.Years Built: 1173-1350Located: Field of Miracles, Pisa, ItalyArchitect: Pisanoshow the audience what you are talking about with images
  • People learn better when words are presented as narration rather than text.include images that go with your presentation, but limit amount of text you providestick to keywords and simple phrases

  • Can your visuals be understood in 3 seconds? If not, redesign them to support your talk.
  • avoid ornate fonts
  • in print serif fonts are considered more readablesans-serif is considered more legible on computer screens
  • literature recommends sticking to a larger font throughout presentationI make 32 point my smallest font so that students can see at the back
  • it looks like yelling, and makes the brain think harder to interpret
  • use high contrast so that information is more readable
  • use keywords or short phrases, avoid lengthy bullet lists where possible
  • spellcheck, read your presentation backwords, proofread, get someone else to proofread
  • recapture your audience attention by blanking out your screen
  • What do you think about this slide?!don’t hide behind your slides, YOU are the presentation, your PowerPoint is a visual aid for your audienceit is not necessaryto use PowerPoint in a presentation!

    27. 27. SimplicityisImportant!!!!!<br />It is very important that you keep your slides simple and not fill them with too much text or to many graphics. This will only serve to distract your audience as they will attempt to read all the text you provide them. The fact that it is on the slide indicates to them that it is important information. Too much text also means that it is harder for your audience to read and they will spend all their time trying to decipher the small font that you have had to use so that you can fit everything onto your slide. It is better to use bullets points for your major points. This will emphasize what you are saying, rather than distract from it. Remember: the more they are reading the less they are listening to what you have to say. Also, graphics that have nothing to do with the information on the slide also serve as a source of distraction. So, while that little lamb is really cute, it does little to illustrate my point. We will talk more about that later.<br />
