Transcript of "Tamk Conference Finished 2008"

  1. 1. Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentation Skills in the Language Classroom Peter Heath 1995 2008 The 1st International Conference on Linguistic and Intercultural Education TAMK University Of Applied Sciences
  2. 2. http://www.writing.engr.psu.edu/teaching_slide_design.html The slide design presented here is taught on engineering and science courses Can also be used in the foreign langauge classroom
  3. 3. This presentation introduces an effective slide design for better foreign language communication Reasons for using the slide design A description of the slide design Results of using the slide design
  4. 4. This presentation introduces an effective slide design for better foreign language communication Reasons for using the slide design A description of the slide design Results of using the slide design
  5. 5. Foreign language teaching is less effective when taught in i solation from the degree programme Language Teaching Future career Presentations Too long between learning and using Future career Engineering Degree Programme Maths Chemistry Physics Professional subjects
  6. 6. Black Hole Results always poor no matter how good the language skills Teaching presentation skills without teaching slide design is a black hole in language teaching =
  7. 7. The default layouts offered by PowerPoint are not suitable for professional presentations Phrase heading Non-descriptive Bullet points Non-hierarchal Background Noisy Students must be taught how to design slides Monotonous
  8. 8. When creating presentation slides, four goals should be set The design should help the audience during the presentation The design should serve as notes after the presentation Robertshaw, Harry, “Class Period 15: Signals and Systems,” classroom The design should help the audience remember the presentation The design should help colleagues give the same presentation
  9. 9. This presentation introduces an effective slide design for better foreign language communication Reasons for using the slide design A description of the slide design Results of using the slide design
  10. 10. Sentence headline Assertion (point of slide) Images Important words (supports point) The slide design arises from principles of rhetoric, cognitive psychology, and human factors science
  11. 11. Effective redundancy The slide design arises from principles of rhetoric, cognitive psychology, and human factors science Paivio’s dual coding theory Recall/recognition is enhanced by presenting information in both visual and verbal form. (http://tip.psychology.org/paivio.html) Repetition of the message in different ways
  12. 12. The slide design is non-language specific Allows knowledge learned on one course to be used on another (knowledge transfer) Communicating across the curriculum
  13. 13. Language Teaching Engineering Degree Programme Future career Future career Maths Chemistry Physics Professional subjects Presentations Foreign language teaching is more effective when it i s an integral part of the degree programme Leads to graduates with better communication skills Presentations
  14. 14. This presentation introduces an effective slide design for better foreign language communication Reasons for using the slide design A description of the slide design Results of using the slide design
  15. 15. The slide design has greatly improved the quality of the presentations given on English courses Black Hole Before After Students produce better presentations Students use the design in other subjects
  16. 16. ” Since learning Peter’s methods, the communication Skills of our undergraduate engineers and the whole department have improved dramatically” Dr Ulla Haggblom-Ahnger Director of Paper, Textile and Chemical Engineering education,TAMK Faculty report an improvement in presentation skills on their courses ” In engineering education too little empasisis is put on presentation skills . Thankfully, Peter Heath’s methods have helped our students become much better presenters. Because of the professional training students now receive, the quality of student presentations on our faculty courses has made a great difference to the overall quality of the learning environment. ” Heikki Aalto Lentokonetekniikan yliopettaja
  17. 17. Faculty report an improvement in presentation skills on their courses “ I have noticed a clear improvement in the way computer science students present things. Project presentations and thesis seminars have improved greatly. When I asked students the reasons for this improvement, the answer was Peter. He has demanded that students put more effort into their presentations by showing and teaching how good a PowerPoint presentation can be. Kiitos Peter” Ari Rantala Head of Studies, Computer Science TAMK
  18. 18. In summary, the slide design can be an important tool in the language classroom It is more effective than PowerPoint defaults It is non-language specific It meets the goals of slide design Students graduate as better communicators
  19. 19. This presentation introduced an effective slide design for better foreign language communication Reasons for using the slide design A description of the slide design Results of using the slide design Questions?
  20. 20. Although researchers give validation more attention, validation requires successful verification Hans Petter Langtangen and Ola Skaghaug, “A First Step Towards Automatic Verfication of PDE Code” Validation Is the PDE model appropriate? Do we solve the right equations? Verification Are the numerical models correctly implemented? Do we solve the right equations?
