Best practices: presentation creation
1. Choose an interesting, but not too interesting, template.
Remind students that the template should complement their information, rather than overwhelm it!
2. Make legibility a priority.
Remind students to avoid fonts that are difficult to read, use color, italics and bold text judiciously, and make the font size large enough to read.
3. limit the amount of info on each slide.
Remind students to not add too much text to each slide. Bullet points are more reader friendly than paragraphs, and numbered lists over 5 items should be broken up onto multiple slides.
4. add graphics and video with your text.
All text presentation may be a bit hard for all listeners to process, so adding graphics and videos is a great way to break up text! If a concept can be explained in a video, consider replacing your text with the appropriate video.
5. Check the flow and coherency.
Overall, the presentation should make sense as a whole. Remind students to check the flow of the slides holistically, in addition to making sure one slide flows into the next.
