How To Structure An Effective PowerPoint:

How To Structure An Effective PowerPoint To structure a PowerPoint, HRSonline.org provides us with this information: Structure = Narrative Logic Flow Design

Narrative:

Narrative Strive to tell a good story - Create an overall theme When possible, use personal stories - Creates an authentic feel

Narrative:

Narrative HRSonline.org poses these questions for anticipating your audience: - “What do you want them to do as a result of your slide/PowerPoint presentation?” - “What is their likely level of knowledge about your subject?” - “To what extent will you need to establish your credibility?”

Logic Flow:

Logic Flow Use methods to organize you thoughts on paper before creating the PowerPoint. Examples: - Storyboarding - Outline

Logic Flow:

Logic Flow Include: - Obvious Starting Point (Intro/Purpose) - Provocative and engaging content in the middle (Body/Supporting Points) - Clear Conclusion or Summary (Review and Conclude)

Design:

Design Pugsley tells us, in “How to… Design an effective PowerPoint Presentation”: “The aims of a visual design are to: ensure legibility simplify the message increase learner engagement focus learner attention on important points provide an alternative channel of communication”

Design:

Design HRSonline.org also gives us these tips for design: Use opening and closing slides Be consistent with elements such as fonts, colors, bullets, and backgrounds Check screen for “eye catchers” Incorporate blank slides or low-content slides to give your audience a visual break

Visual Elements:

Visual Elements There are many different kinds of visual elements that may be used in a PowerPoint presentation: Examples: Videos Charts and Graphs Photographs Diagrams X-rays Maps Cartoons, Animations, and More (if appropriate)

Why Incorporate Visuals “There are any number of visual resources that can be downloaded from the internet.
