Basic rules of presenting

Basic Rules of Presenting

  • FONTS – Use no more than two or three fonts; use “mainstream fonts”; minimum font size should be 24 or greater

  • COLORS – Use dark lettering on light backgrounds or vice versa

  • INFORMATION – “Quick info,” not novels!


A really bad slide

A Really Bad Slide

  • There are a few important things to talk about, like how hard dark on dark is to read.

  • Another important point is that sometimes not all of the slide can be seen – watch your margins.

  • Isn’t it amazing how powerful PowerPoint really is? It truly is a computing marvel.

Can you see me now?

always collate

print what? -> slides = big! (1/page)

handouts – 3 or 6/page

grayscale – always select


Transferring files

Transferring Files
