  1. PowerPoint Presentations • Why use PowerPoint? • Amount of information • Font • Color • Extras • Examples

  2. Why use PowerPoint? • Reach different learning styles • Reinforce key information • Give clear prompts for assignments • Move presentation directly to your web site • Keeps instructor organized and on task • Serves as Ockham’s razor

  3. Amount of information • Ockham’s razor: “entities are not to be multiplied beyond necessity” • Less is more A good rule of thumb: No more than 6 words per line. No more than 6 lines per slide. • What do I really want them to know? • What can they see / read / take in?

  4. Why use PowerPoint? • PowerPoint allows me to reach students of different learning styles because it adds a visual element to my oral presentation. This is especially important because today’s students seem to be more visual than other generations. • It helps reinforce the key information in my presentation and keeps student interest focused on the front of the room. • It allows me to give students clear prompts for their assignments, especially in-class assignments. They can always look up to refocus their attention to the assigned task. • A PowerPoint presentation can be moved directly to your web site so that students can look at it again after class and as many times as they want. • PowerPoint forces an instructor to organize his or her lecture and presentation material and keeps them on track and focused. • It serves as Ockham’s razor by helping me structure my thoughts.
