      Tips for the professor

  • Note you are to have 10 slides for the presentation.  If you need more add them.

  • Be sure each slide has a heading.  

  • Do not use type less than 20 pt as it becomes difficult for people in a room to read what is on your slide.

  • Do not write your narrative on the slide, use bullets and ideally no more than 4 bullets to a slide.

  • Do write your narrative in your speaker notes.  Note on each slide at the bottom is a place for you to write your speaker notes.  This is where you want to write out your script, note that no movie, news cast or even the President does not speak without a script, nothing is done with “just wing it”.  As you write your script, you can rehearse what you would say in a presentation, this way you are NOT reading your PowerPoint slide, but speaking to your audience, you want the audience to listen to you and see your face, not your back.

  • Do add color to your slide template, a plain black and white template is boring and looks like an overhead presentation.

  • Be careful to NOT use a dark background then add a dark text which is then unreadable.

  • Do add graphics, pictures and charts add value to audience members.
