Why PowerPoint? http://www.flickr.com/photos/ballyooo/2321505686/ Your artistic statement http://www.flickr.com/photos/11375837@N05/2208498758/ We all learn differently
Why PowerPoint? To support CLEBC LiveWebcasts
Why PowerPoint? PowerPoint can make things Move
Who’s your learner? (Survey) How many of you -  Have used PowerPoint previously? How many times? Can save a file in Word or Word Perfect? Can drag and drop text? Can cut and paste text? Can change the font type and font size?
Tell me and I will forget ! Show me and I will remember! Involve me and I will understand! Who’s the learner?   -  Confucius says...
Objectives prepare a presentation with text and graphics http://www.flickr.com/photos/tobiastoft/3209409590/ learn effective delivery
The medium is not the message Formal Light  hearted Effective delivery
http://www.flickr.com/photos/kjarrett/455157415/ Effective delivery I’ve got my PPT speaking notes Work with PowerPoint: Emphasize points with voice, head, arms, body, fingers
Plan Create 9 key slides Spice it up End (7 pm)
Create 9 Key Slides Introduction Title (slide 1) Audience: Who is the learner (slide 2) Objectives (slide 3) Create interest (slide 4) Plan (slide 5) Body Topic 1 (slide 6) Topic 2 (slide 7) Topic 3 (slide 8) Closing (slide 9)

Objectives  (slide 3) http://www.flickr.com/photos/hikingartist/3515471358/ Death by PowerPoint
It’s not about  filling a vessel It’s about lighting  a fire Objectives:  objectives should light a fire of interest in learners.
Objectives What do you want the learner to know  or  do differently?
Objectives Example - commercial negotiation As a result of this session, you will be able to…  List the leading cases and state how they have changed the law State a strategy for negotiating a complex transaction using the leading cases Complete a reporting letter to a client that states your strategy and lays out the  options

Create interest (slide 4) Photos Your own or Flickr attribution Clip art Action http://www.flickr.com/photos/11375837@N05/2208498758/
Complex Transactions Confuse Clients Create Interest ( Example 1 of 2 - commercial negotiation )

Organize the Body Body 3-5 major topics that accomplish the objectives Arrange the major topics in logical order Within each topic, move from general to specific with each topic Use transitions and cues between each major topic (e.g. graphics/headings)
Plan Review the leading cases Review and discuss a case study to develop a strategy for negotiating a complex transaction using the leading cases Based on the case study, you will identify the major issues to include in a letter to your client that sets out your strategy and the options  The plan contains the major topics.  Each major topic is a different section in your presentation Example – Commercial negotiation
The Leading Cases http://www.flickr.com/photos/jburgin/3005668060/ Example – Commercial negotiation:  1 st  major topic
