  20. A Case for Case Title Case • The above title is in title case (upper and lower case) • This bullet uses sentence case • This is too small to read (12 font) • Sans fonts, such as Arial, are best for screen reading, while Times New Roman is best for reading on paper Back to Presentation by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  21. Background • Dark or black with white font • White with black font • Don’t use coloredfonts • Avoid dizzying combinations • Avoid busy backgrounds See Choosing the right colors for your PowerPoint presentation: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint/HA010120721033.aspx Back to Presentation by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  22. Content and Bullets • Bullets are a guide • Have one idea per slide • Bullets are not a way of capturing excessive content in the form of sentences, paragraphs and entire theoretical discourses, partially because no one wants to read it but also because as people strain their eyes to read the sentence that goes on and on and on and on they get really frustrated and begin to wonder why this couldn’t have been paraphrased into something more succinct. Also, it’s annoying to have someone just read all these sentences off the screen—that’s not a presentation, that’s story time in grade school! So limit it to points and know your stuff! by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  23. Content and Bullets • Hierarchical organization Like This: Not This: by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  24. Content and Bullets • Consider your audience • Who are you presenting to? • How will they use the information? • Literacy issues: Keep it simple but don’t ‘dumb it down’ • What do they already know? • Why will they be attending? • How can you make it relevant?

  29. Graphics • Not so great for a talk on epidemiology Back to Presentation by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  30. Slide Transitions • Just click! • Avoid using the word “continued” • Not necessary in PowerPoint • Alters appearance of title • Watch carefully now by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  31. Slide Transitions, continued This messes up your title • If you have content onto the next slide, simply leave the slide title the same; don’t state “continued” by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  32. Slide Transitions, cont’d So does this • “Cont” and “cont’d” are simply incorrect • Note that your title is still messed up (smaller font to accommodate “cont’d”) • Slide titles should be the same from slide to slide by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  33. Slide Transitions • See how much better it looks when slide titles are the same? by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  34. Slide Transitions • Ah, much better! Back to Presentation by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  35. Animation • The only reasons for animating text: • To show progression of concepts, especially on a diagram • To allow for participant guessing • To get them involved! Back to Presentation by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  36. Participation • Think-pair-share • Ask participants to consider how they would approach a topic • Ask them to pair up with the person next to them and discuss their answers Back to Presentation by Em M. Pijl Zieber RN, BSN

  38. My Dog, Katie • Rescued • Spayed • Adjusting • Agility This is my chocolate lab, Katie. I rescued her from certain death at the pound. I had her spayed and vaccinated as soon as possible. Katie was shy of me at first, due to being hurt by people in the past. However, she is warming up to me and adjusting well. She is a real sweetheart! One thing I am excited about is starting agility classes with her. She loves the jumps and tunnels. It’s a great way for her to burn off that lab energy!

  39. Presentation • Make it interesting…by being interested in it yourself • Graphics, fonts and animations are no substitute for poor content or a boring presentation • Remember…telling is not teaching!
