PowerPoint is used in a majority of classrooms on campus today, but it is not often used to enhance the quality and effectiveness of teaching. In this workshop, we will cover best practices for designing slides for use during lectures and review sessions that will help students better engage with (and better retain) course material, as well as the complexities of sharing slides and notes with students. Participants will leave the workshop knowing how to design PowerPoint presentations which contribute to more effective learning.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Use best practices to inform use of presentation tools
• Identify and avoid common PowerPoint pitfalls
• Design and present an effective PowerPoint presentation
