Formatting tips Font Issues
  • Beware of using fancy fonts that may not be
    loaded on other computers
  • 32 pt. is at the lower end of legibility from the
    back of the room

10
Font issues Legibility
  • Bigger type is easier to read
  • If you need to use smaller type, you probably
    have too much on the slide.
  • 36 pt for all text.
  • 24 pt. minumum minumum for graphics

11
Font issues Legibility
  • However - Leave some air.
  • Very large type with no spaces in between filling
    the entire space is very oppressive and more
    difficult to read

12
Font issues Legibility
  • Normal upper and lower case is always easier to
    read than ALL CAPITALS
  • Use bold, italics, size, colors for emphasis

13
The bottom line
  • Make sure the entire audience can view your
    entire slide.

Presentation tips
  • Please look at everyone in the audience (not just
    the instructor)
  • But its ok to focus on the positive and smiling
    audience members.
  • Give the audience cues as to where you are in
    the presentation (e.g. see previous slide)

25
More Presentation Tips
  • Hands out of pockets, no leaning
  • SMILE Enjoy yourself!
  • Use humor! Most people enjoy laughing! But
    inform, dont entertain.
  • Dont be afraid of being a little nervous its
    called creative tension
  • Dont read from a script or from note cards.

26
Even More Presentation Tips
  • Use up all of your allotted time, but no more
    (this requires some practice)
  • SPEAK UP!!

27
One more tip
  • DO NOT read your slides to the audience!!! People
    often put everything they are going to say on the
    slide and then read from the slide. There are
    many problems with this. First, you arent
    looking at the audience if you are looking at the
    slide. Second, people could have just read on
    their own they didnt need you there. And many
    more

28
or
Put as little as you can on each slide but
make sure you refer to it!
29
Dont put things on screen youre not talking
about
30
Summary
  • Be clear and concise
  • Prepare early
  • Practice
  • Practice
  • Practice

31
PRACTICE SOME MORE!
32
One last hint
Dont just present to your audience. Teach
them. Educate them.
