  3. 3. 1. THINK ABOUT THE GOALS AND PURPOSE OF THE PRESENTATION HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• The goals and purpose should serve as your guide as you create and use your Powerpoint.• Your powerpoint should ultimately enhance the effect of your presentation
  4. 4. 2. DO NOT OVERWHELM YOUR AUDIENCE HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Minimize number of slides• Tackle one thing at a time• Rule of thumb: No more than 8 lines per slide• NO PARAGRAPHS• Only show the essential and what needs emphasis
  5. 5. 3. MIX IT UPHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Use varying forms of media (videos, sound clips, pictures)• Have a hook to reel in audience• Use different effects but make sure that it helps the presentation, not distracts from it.
  6. 6. 4. TIME YOUR PRESENTATIONHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Make sure the flow of your Powerpoint is in sync with the presentation as a whole• Avoid showing slides that you have yet to discuss• Avoid staying in slides that you are already done with
  7. 7. 5. MAKE SLIDES READABLE AND VIEWABLEHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Use contrasting colors when it comes to text and background colors• Avoid hard to read fonts• Make sure images can be seen in contrast to the background• As much as possible, make sure video clips are of high quality• Avoid clutter
  8. 8. 6. MAKE IT INTERACTIVE• Make audience anticipate information on the next slides• Include questions on slides plus a moment for them to think it over• Use powerpoint for a fun Q&A• Use hyperlinks creatively
  9. 9. 7. DON’T PARROT THE POWERPOINTHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Don’t put everything in the powerpoint• If your audience can learn everything they need to know by simply reading your powerpoint, you are doing it wrong• Powerpoint is only a tool designed to increase effectivebess of presentation
  10. 10. 8. KNOW THE LIMITATIONS OF POWERPOINTHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/Powerpoint is not effective when:• Distributing large amounts of information• Non-linear learning paths• Immediate feedback is required
  11. 11. 9. MINIMIZE COMPUTER INTERACTIONHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Moving the cursor around can be very distracting• Hide the cursor• Interacting with the computer during a presentation could break the flow of the presentation• Invest in a remote “clicker” or a wireless mouse can do the trick
  12. 12. 10. DO NOT TURN OFF ALL THE LIGHTSHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Your audience cannot take notes if they want to• It can encourage behavior other than paying attention to your presentation• It can induce sleepiness
  13. 13. 11. YOU ARE THE STARHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Do not let the powerpoint center stage• The powerpoint should only serve as a guide and provide emphasis• The bulk of giving out information should be on you
  14. 14. 12. MAKE SURE YOUR POWERPOINT HAS ALOGICAL FLOW HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Attentive audience will find it distracting if your powerpoint does not have a logical flow• Your listeners might be annoyed rather than informed• It shows lack of preparation• Prepare your powerpoint way before you need it, not 5 minutes before
  15. 15. 13. DON’T USE A SLIDE WHEN YOU DON’T HAVETO HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Use black screens• Use slides only to highlight important information• This avoids overwhelming the audience and keeps the focus on you
  16. 16. 13. GIVE OUT HANDOUTSHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Announce that handouts will be provided only after the presentation• This will keep the audience attentive knowing that they don’t have to copy everything• Only give out the handouts after in order not to preempt the audience to your presentation
  17. 17. 14. PRACTICE SPEAKING WITHOUT APOWERPOINT HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Develops your speaking skills• Helps keep focus on you• Avoids breaking the 7 th tip• Removes dependence from the powerpoint
  18. 18. 15. AVOID CLICHES HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• This would make your powerpoint very boring and cheesy• Avoid clipart and stock photos• Minimize use of animation
