New York Times headline declares, “We have met the enemy and he is PowerPoint”!  National Public Radio reports that “Physicists, generals and CEOs agree: ditch the PowerPoint.”  Why does PowerPoint inspire so much hate?  Perhaps because it’s so easy to use PowerPoint poorly and to make bad slides.  We’ve all seen our fair share of them! 

In this workshop, we will explore the ways that PowerPoint and other slide technologies can foster audience understanding and attention.  We will cover topics such as how to develop visually arresting slides, how to break down complicated information, and how to apply best practices across fields.  Attendees will be invited to apply some of these techniques to their own materials by producing and sharing a few slides as part of the workshop.
