General Tips
  • Organize in advance
  • Know your audience
  • Be familiar with material
  • Relax
  • Practice your words
  • Dont race through the text

4
Effective Slides
  • Include essential information only
  • Like an outline of a paper
  • Avoid excessive verbiage
  • Limit number of words per line
  • Limit lines per screen
  • Usually seven is a good limit

5
Formatting Slides
  • Left justify body text
  • Balance the information
  • Leave space between lines
  • Use consistent layout templates
  • Dont surprise viewers

6
Use of Media
  • Use graphs and images when needed
  • Minimize use of non-essential media
  • Animation can be very distracting
  • Transitions should be consistent
  • Graphics, if used, should be big

7
Pacing
  • Use slides as mnemonic aids
  • Dont leave a slide on for too long
  • Dont whiz through slides

8
Color
  • Minimize use of colors
  • Use contrasting colors
  • Avoid garish color schemes

9
Type Usage
  • Avoid novelty typefaces
  • Use two-three type sizes
  • 18 to 48 points
  • Use system fonts
  • Avoid all caps
  • Minimize punctuation

10
Some Counterexamples
11
Wordy Slide
  • This is a slide that has way too much written on
    it. The screen is cluttered with words and the
    audience feels obliged to read it. Since the
    audience is reading the slide, their attention is
    focused on that instead of what the presenter is
    saying. Its possible that when everyone is
    finished with the slide, the audience will
    remember half of what was on the screen and half
    of what the presenter said, maybe garbled
    together in a way that makes no sense at all. Or
    maybe they wont remember anything at all because
    theyve zoned out.

12
Text is Too Small
  • Text should be clearly visible
  • Viiewers in the back should be able to read
  • People in the front should be able to read

13
Bad Color Combination
  • Black on blue is bad
  • Many other color combinations are bad
  • You need enough contrast
  • You need to avoid garish combinations

14
Typefaces! (and transitions)
  • This is a line in schoolhouse cursive
  • This is a typeface called Cracked
  • Heres Lucida Blackletter
