  • Add timeline?
  • What do you dislike most about PowerPoint presentations?
    -as an audience member?
    -as a deliverer?


  • Early on need to establish that the way most people are using presentation is wrong.
    It’s the wrong medium and we have an incorrect assumption (teachers) that copying from a slide while someone is speaking somehow cements neural networks.
    This is NOT supported by research.
    John Sweller, uni new south wales. Developed “cognitive load theory” in 1988
    Enhance memory by stimulating multiple modalities (modality effect);
    BUT same info through multiple modalities actually decreases memory (redundancy effect).
    Richard Mayer: dual-channels, that is, people have separate information processing channels for visual material and verbal material; limited capacity, that is, people can pay attention to only a few pieces of information in each channel at a time; and active processing,
    The implications are that: 1) PowerPoint presentations should use both visual and verbal forms of presentation, 2) filling the slides with information will easily overload people's cognitive systems, and 3) the presentations should help learners to select, organize, and integrate presented information.

  • What we’re trying to avoid...

  • A different approach:
    Less is more, positive & negative space, every element has a specific purpose, positioning.
  • Limit to three:
    Goals: # Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of presentations.
    # Understand the \"Zen\" approach to slide design
    # Know how to find free CC images and how to cite appropriately

  • Why use a presentation at all then?

    It can be a very effective way of communicating.
    -stimulates multiple modalities
    -brings clarity to complex topics
    -can evoke emotion
    multimedia principle, people learn better from words and pictures than from words alone; coherence principle, people learn better when extraneous material is excluded rathe
    contiguity principle, corresponding words and pictures are presented at the same time or next to each other on the screen;
    modality principle, animation with spoken text than animation with printed text;
    signaling principle, material is organized with clear outlines and headings
    personalization principle, in which people learn better from conversational style than formal style. (Mayer)


  • So much depends on how the visual is placed within the context of the presentation, and the content and objectives of that particular presentation are of paramount concern..

    simplicity can also be viewed as a consequence. A consequence, that is, of our careful efforts to craft a story and create supporting visuals that focus on our audience's needs in a clear and meaningful way.

  • Presentation is a VISUAL medium.
    Everything you do in a presentation should focus on this.
    Great images make great slides.

  • Guidelines to follow:
    Begin with the end in mind: Before you even open up PowerPoint, sit down and really think about the day of your presentation. What is the real purpose of your talk? Why is it that you were ask to speak? What does the audience expect? In your opinion, what are the most important parts of your topic for the audience to take away from your, say, 50-minute presentation?
    Content, content, content: your presentation preparation starts with solid content (appropriate for your audience) which you then build into a winning story that you'll use to connect with your audience
    Keep it simple: Simple can be hard for the presenter, but it will be appreciated by the audience. Simplicity takes more forethought and planning on your part because you have to think very hard about what to include and what can be left out.
    Outlining your content: start your planning in \"analog mode.\" Use paper, whiteboard, create a storyboard.
    Have a solid,clear structure in mind and follow through with it.
    Everything has a purpose: ask “so what?” eliminate the fluff
    Can it pass the elevator test?
    Say it with a story. Make it personal
    Rehearse it.

    3 lines of text max, no more than 5 words
    Images evoke emotion, use good ones.
