  6. 6. What Type of Visuals Are Appropriate? • Handouts • Whiteboards • Flip charts • Overheads • Props • PowerPoint
  7. 7. 7 PowerPoint Problems PowerPoint is great, but… It takes some thought to use it well!
  8. 8. #1: Too Busy 1 • Think handouts for detailed charts and reports • Think “key” phrases, not entire sentences
  9. 9. How Much Text? • No more than 6 words per bullet • No more than 6 bullets per slide • No more than 6 slides in a row with bullets 6 » Break up slides with a chart or graphic • Keep all text about 24 point » Especially for video/web conferencing!

  16. 16. #5: Distracting Animation and Sound 5 • Keep animation consistent on each slide » Example: all bullets “fly in” from right » Example: all slides use “fade” for transition • General Rule: Stick to “Fly In” and “Wipes” • Generally all transitions should be the same.
  17. 17. #6: Distracting Font Choices 6 •Not all com puters have the sam f onts e • Ch oeo fo th u o t o s ne nt ro gh u »A ddinte s w bldanditalic ret ith o s s tyle
