These are the accompanying slide to a talk I gave at Plymouth University in May 2013 for the final year teaching students. Although a lot of the context is lost, I'm sure the gist is clear. Desire paths are the most efficient route through somewhere, and I spoke about the need to increase efficiency without getting complacent.
A note about the slides: For this deck, I took a punt and made a slide story – this is advocated as a style from Nancy Duarte’s fantastic Slide:Ology book, and is where each slide is a part of a bigger picture. This takes a careful level of planning, but is easy to do, and you can use the oldest version of PowerPoint to do it in too! I think the overall effect, with all the slides actually forming part of the last slide may have been wasted on my audience, but it gave me a good structure to hang my ideas on, and was a ‘smile inside’ for anyone who spotted it!
