Content recommendationsThe content of the presentation should be carefully structured and have the following parts: title outline introduction main body (methods, results, discussion) conclusion webliography and bibliography info about the author
Content recommendations Slides are designed to supplement your presentation, not to BE your presentation. Keep it simple, and dont read your presentation word for word from your slides. • Fill out a storyboard before you begin to put your presentation together. It will help you stay organized, and things will get done faster.
Content recommendations Presentations should not contain full paragraphs of text Every slide should contain a title that summarizes the information presented on the slide Create a logical flow to your presentation Don’t overload the presentation with multimedia files but at the same time don’t forget that the best way to remember the information is to visualize it Don’t forget to make references (plagiarism!!!)
Form recommendations Type that is projected on a screen should be in sans serif type (like Arial or Helvetica). This is because in the projection process letters lose some of their sharpness, and serif type (like Times) can look muddy when projected. Use large fonts, as big as realistically possible. Small fonts (28 is the smallest possible) are hard to read. Use contrasting colors either a dark background with light text or a light background with dark text.
Form recommendations Avoid busy backgrounds that will make the text hard to read. Keep the background simple Limit your graphics to 1-3 per page. Too many graphics can be distracting. • Avoid all CAPITAL LETTERS IN YOUR TEXT. It will look like youre shouting. • Include a good combination of words, pictures, and graphics. Variety keeps the presentation interesting.
Style of presentation Dont read from the slide - vary your choice of words. Dont talk to the screen; maintain eye contact with the audience. Use a laser pointer to indicate salient features of the slide as you speak Speak loudly and articulate.
