Necessary to understand talk Explain (don’t just show) data Plan a conclusion Preview future work Remember what it was like not to know Talk to prospective audience members or imagine them - list their questions Organize information in chunks, going from what they know to what they don’t Include topic’s significance Tie new info to previous studies or relevant events - motivate !! Organize from listeners’ point of view Principle is “GIVEN to NEW”

6 Getting started Create a slide show with storyboards, not a script Use the slide show... 1. To select important topics and issues 2. To organize content 3. To create a hierarchy To select a design, ask yourself: 1. What professional image do I want to project? 2. In what type of room will I give my talk? 1. Well-lit room: use light background / dark text and visuals 2. Dimly-lit room: use dark background / light text and visuals

7 Set up “Slide Master” Design the “look” of your slide show Choose appropriate template Select pre-designed, color coordinated presentation templates Choose “slide layouts” for slides Select from 12 “master slide styles” under “FORMAT” menu to build your show Project a clear font

Use grammatical parallelism Use only essential info Guide the eyes of audience with hierarchy, colour Use big, legible fonts and framing blank space Bullets help audience skim the slide Bullets help audience see relationships between information points

9 Displaying Visuals Select visuals purposefully
1. What visuals illustrate a point? 2. Make a claim? 3. Help to prove an argument? Design easy-to-read visuals Are the visuals easy to read by all members of your audience?
