Making PowerPoint Slides

    Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
    version.

Tips to be Covered
  • Outlines
  • Slide Structure
  • Fonts
  • Color
  • Background
  • Graphs and Images
  • Spelling and Grammar
  • Conclusions
  • Questions

10
Outline
  • Make your 1st or 2nd slide an outline of your
    presentation
  • Ex previous slide
  • Follow the order of your outline for the rest of
    the presentation
  • Only place main points on the outline slide
  • Ex Use the titles of each slide as main points

11
Slide Structure Good
  • Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation
  • Write in bullet form, not complete sentences
  • Include 4-5 bullets per slide
  • Avoid wordiness use key words and phrases only

12
Slide Structure - Bad
  • This page contains too many words for a
    presentation slide. It is not written in point
    form, making it difficult both for your audience
    to read and for you to present each point.
    Although there are exactly the same number of
    points on this slide as the previous slide, it
    looks much more complicated. In short, your
    audience will spend too much time trying to read
    this paragraph instead of listening to you.

13
Slide Structure Good
  • Show one point at a time
  • Will help audience concentrate on what you are
    saying
  • Will prevent audience from reading ahead
  • Will help you keep your presentation focused

14
Slide Structure - Bad
  • Do not use distracting animation
  • Do not go overboard with the animation
  • Be consistent with the animation that you use

15
Fonts - Good
  • Use at least an 18-point font
  • Use different size fonts for main points and
    secondary points
  • this font is 24-point, the main point font is
    28-point, and the title font is 36-point
  • Use a standard font like Times New Roman or Arial

16
Fonts - Bad
  • If you use a small font, your audience wont be
    able to read what you have written
  • CAPITALIZE ONLY WHEN NECESSARY. IT IS DIFFICULT
    TO READ
  • Dont use a complicated font

17
Color - Good
  • Use a color of font that contrasts sharply with
    the background
  • Ex blue font on white background
  • Use color to reinforce the logic of your
    structure
  • Ex light blue title and dark blue text
  • Use color to emphasize a point
  • But only use this occasionally

18
Color - Bad
  • Using a font color that does not contrast with
    the background color is hard to read
  • Using color for decoration is distracting and
    annoying.
  • Using a different color for each point is
    unnecessary
  • Using a different color for secondary points is
    also unnecessary
  • Trying to be creative can also be bad

19
Background - Good
  • Use backgrounds such as this one that are
    attractive but simple
  • Use backgrounds which are light
  • Use the same background consistently throughout
    your presentation

20
Background Bad
  • Avoid backgrounds that are distracting or
    difficult to read from
  • Always be consistent with the background that you
    use

21
Graphs - Good
  • Use graphs rather than just charts and words
  • Data in graphs is easier to comprehend retain
    than is raw data
  • Trends are easier to visualize in graph form
  • Always title your graphs

22
Graphs - Bad
23
Graphs - Good
24
Graphs - Bad
25
Graphs - Bad
  • Minor gridlines are unnecessary
  • Font is too small
  • Colors are illogical
  • Title is missing
  • Shading is distracting

26
Spelling and Grammar
  • Proof your slides for
  • speling mistakes
  • the use of of repeated words
  • grammatical errors you might have make
  • If English is not your first language, please
    have someone else check your presentation!

27
Conclusion
  • Use an effective and strong closing
  • Your audience is likely to remember your last
    words
  • Use a conclusion slide to
  • Summarize the main points of your presentation

28
Conclusion
  • Remember that you are focus of your
    presentation.
  • Use the slides to guide your thinking.
  • Grab attention immediately.
  • Design quality slides that enhance what you
    say.

29
Conclusion
  • Stand away from a podium and talk to the
    audience.
  • Make good eye contact and be responsive.
  • Provide a handout with key points.

30
Questions??
  • End your presentation with a simple question
    slide to
  • Invite your audience to ask questions
  • Provide a visual aid during question period
  • Avoid ending a presentation abruptly

31
Final Advice

    technical details (computer, remote, software,
    etc.) are set up and working.
  • Have a backup. Carry a flash drive with your
    presentation
