our discipline, it is necessary because it adds to the educational experience of
the student.
Another necessary action is rehearsing the presentation. When I review
my presentations for currency, I also practice my delivery. What ideas do I want
to stress? What is happening on the political scene that can be connected to the
lecture/discussion? Like the previous point, this is just plain common sense but
sometimes common sense isn’t always so common.
Common sense is what should be employed in constructing PowerPoint
slides. Over the years I have put together a few simple rules in creating slides.
1.
Don’t put too many topics/concepts per page..
2.
Don’t put anything on the slide that you don’t want to discuss.
3.
Position the material on the top of the slide so that everyone can
easily see it.
4.
Use contrast so to make the text easier to read. (This can be done
by changing the color and size of the text lettering)
5.
Limit the number of bullets/point to five a page.
6.
Use cartoons and graphics for supplemental materials and/or to
stimulate a discussion.
7.
Don’t use cartoons and graphics; too many is worst than too few.
These rules seem obvious but sometimes things that should be obvious are not.
