Course Outline

Clearly and Confidently with PowerPoint

Presentation?

· Identify presentation techniques that can serve as alternatives to reading bullet points from slides.

Module 2: Maximizing the

Use of the Notes Page View

This module shows you how to simplify the layout of a slide by shifting on-screen information into the

Notes Area. This simple but powerful technique will help you expand the space available to present information.

Topics and Activities

Spoken Text Off the Screen

· Maximizing the Use of the

Notes Page View

· Exercise 1: Making Use of the Notes Page View in a Student Example

PowerPoint presentations by using the Notes Page view.

· Balance projected images and spoken words by planning both together.

· Set the stage for a visual approach by clearing the slide area of excessive text.

Module 3: Summarizing the Main Idea of a Slide

This module demonstrates how you can more clearly communicate your ideas by summarizing the main idea of a slide in a complete sentence. This technique helps the audience and the presenter keep track of the key point of the slide.

Topics and Activities

Assists Both Audience and Presenter

· Summarize the main idea of a slide in a student example.

· Demonstrate how a clear headline increases the confidence of a presenter by reducing the need to read all of the text from a list of bullet points.

Module 4: Using the Full

Screen Area to Display Graphics

This module illustrates the power of using the full screen area to display graphics. Because many presenters shrink graphics down to sizes that lose their visual impact, this module helps you to maximize the impact of the visuals on your slides.

Instead of Telling

Entire Slide Area to Display a Graphic

· Exercise 1: Displaying a

Graphic in the Entire Slide Area in a Student Example

PowerPoint slides for visual elements that can be expanded.

· Present a PowerPoint slide using a graphic as a visual prompt rather than relying on text on the screen.

Module 5: Applying Five

Overlooked Techniques to Your Presentations

This module highlights five overlooked techniques that can help you increase the effectiveness of your presentations. Although most presenters are familiar with the basic set of techniques, they may not be aware that their delivery can quickly improve by using this additional set of techniques.

Topics and Activities

· How Five Overlooked

Techniques Can Make a Big Difference

· Demonstration 1: Applying

Five Overlooked Techniques

· Exercise: Applying the

Five Techniques in a Student Example
