  1. A Presentation on Presentation Jim Levin Education Studies University of California, San Diego

  2. But first… • 2020 visions • Sign-up for July 18th Colloquium presentation times • YouTube response to Jakey Toor’s posting

  3. Presentation hints • PowerPoint hints • Projection vs. overheads vs. handouts • Too much text: PPT as an outline or set of headers, not the presentation • Computer animation: the Good, the Bad & the Ugly • Glaze, Gestures, & Movement • Pointing: Pointed and Pointless

  4. Structure of a presentation • Title slide • Outline of the presentation slides • Contact information slide

  5. Paper presentation differences • For some audiences, you read your paper • For some audiences, you talk from overhead transparencies or PowerPoint slides (find out which ahead of time)

  6. PPT slide design • Bad backgrounds • TOO MUCH TEXT on a slide • Too small • Design hint: the "blur" test - squint your eyes and if the text can't be read, redesign • Too many slides

  7. The Gettysburg PowerPoint • and The Making of The Gettysburg PowerPoint

  8. Computer animation: the Good, the Bad & the Ugly • Slide builds: the temptations • Slide builds: more normal • Graphics: progressive hilighting

  9. SDLC Senior Personnel

  10. Gaze, Gestures, & Movement • Why turn your back on your audience? • The "B" key, the "W" key, and keeping your audience awake • Movement vs. pacing: attraction vs. distraction

  11. Pointing: Pointed and Pointless • Why I hate laser pointers - what's the point? • Using the computer cursor • Why the web, Word, or the edit mode of PowerPoint is better than the presentation mode of PowerPoint • Using a pen or your finger with overheads • Another feature

  12. Overhead slides • For settings without data projectors • For audiences not used to PowerPoint • As a backup

  13. Handout • If all else fails • One idea: single page, double sided with the title slide, the ten most important content slides, and the contact information slide, printed six to a page from PowerPoint

  14. Timing • Aids to keeping on time: watches, timers, buzzers, etc. • Aids to keeping on time: timekeepers, time cards http://edsserver.ucsd.edu/~jlevin/timecards/ • Practice, practice, practice

  15. Dealing with questions • Why are they asking? • They want to know? • They want to know if you know? • They want to impress the rest of the audience? • They want to make you look bad? • They want to make your theoretical position, your methodological position, your institution, etc. look bad • Don't take it personally

  16. What if they're not happy with your answer? • Ask for clarification • Try to answer again (but only once more) • Defer until later

  17. What if you don't know the answer? • Compliment the asker "That's a good question." • Clarify the question - did you mean…? • Defer until later

  18. Your presentations on July 18th • Time: 20 minutes • 10 minutes for your research presentation (with PPT) • 5 minutes to show your video • 5 minutes for questions • Order of PPT and video is your choice

  19. Your presentations on July 18th • No more than 10 slides (Rachel & Rusty's guidelines) • Storyboard your presentation (can use our video storyboard template)

  20. Overall principles • Top down: what are your goals for the presentation • For each slide, each transition, each graphic, each text element, does it contribute to your goals? If not, delete it.

  21. Overall principles • Bottom up: • Gestalt principle: Similarity leads to grouping • Dimensions of similarity: • Location • Shape • Color • Size • Sequence • …
