Presentation Transcript

  1. How to give a Power Point Presentation Holly Hunts, Ph.D., CFCS Family and Consumer Sciences Montana State University

  2. Choose a topic that fits power point • Lecture format • Hard to do hands-on • Lights off • Two things at once • Cognitive objectives • Affective – work at it • Add frills • Add statistics

  3. Start with a title slide Your name, position and company

  4. Set the ground rules (with or without a slide about it) • How long is the presentation going to last? • Can they ask questions during the presentation? • What material are they responsible for? • Will there be an exam? Homework? • Should they take notes? • Is there a hand-out with the material on it?

  5. Give them a road map • Introduction • Main topics • Summary • Questions and answers • Small group work

  6. Anticipatory Set • Music • Interesting photo • Interesting quote (Internet) • Interesting statistic (Internet) • Provocative statement

  7. Examples With a stop light, green means 'go' and yellow means 'slow down'. With a banana, however, it is quite the opposite. Yellow means 'go', green means 'whoa, slow down', and red means 'where the heck did you get that banana?' Mitch HedbergAmerican comedian (1968 - 2005)

  8. Or a serious quote Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing. Abraham Lincoln16th president of US (1809 - 1865)

  9. Group Topics Together • Like an essay – similar topics together • Control what the audience sees at one time. • One slide – one topic

  10. Help your audience with transitions • Use the title of your slides • Use your voice – YOU are value added • REMEMBER: Talk to the audience, not the screen! • The show should NOT be totally self-explanatory • Use bullet points that are meaningful • And, but, or (chalkboard story)

  11. Note there are bullet points not paragraphs! • Think about their notes • Keywords • Key statistics

  12. Edit!!! • Think about controlling what the audience sees all at once (go back and edit) • You unfold a story – sequentially not all at once. • check that you are consistent about capitalization. • Capitalization • Check spellling (or you look like a phool!)

  13. ALWAYS!! • Know every word/diagram/equation/etc. YOU put on YOUR slide • Ph.D. Exam example: “Power Pump” • Doubling ?

  14. Add sound effects • Make sure they can be heard when presented • Speed of computer for presentation • Software of computer for presentation • Speakers?
