With text, less is almost always more. One thing to avoid, slides with a lot of text, especially if its a repeat of what youre saying out loud. Its like if you give a paper handout in a meeting, everyones head goes down and they read, rather than staying heads-up and listening. If there are a lot of words on your slide, youre asking your audience to split their attention between what theyre reading and what theyre hearing. Thats really hard for a brain to do, and it compromises the effectiveness of both your slide text and your spoken words. If you cant avoid having text-y slides, try to progressively reveal text (like unveiling bullet points one by one) as you need it.</p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>es</p><p>Let youslidesbreathe </p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>esUseImage/ Figureswheneverpossible</p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>esKeep the variety of fonts to minimal</p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>es</p><p>I am Serif </p><p>I am San-SerifSerif is better</p><p>in slides</p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>es</p><p>San-Serif</p><p>Serif </p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>esKeep a set of backup slides</p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>esCheck four typos </p><p>TypoMisunderstanding </p></li><li><p>Bad Reputation </p></li><li><p>Slid</p><p>es</p><p>Play withcontrast </p></li><li><p>Big is beautiful </p></li><li><p>Deliveringthe Presentation</p><p>3</p></li><li><p>Timing</p><p>Keep yourpresentationwithintime limit </p></li><li><p>Timing</p><p>Be agile </p></li><li><p>AnsweringListen </p><p>carefully to the </p><p>questions </p></li><li><p>AnsweringAnswer </p><p>directlyto the point of the questions</p></li><li><p>Do notsmoke </p><p>Answering</p></li><li><p>:) Always </p></li><li><p>Make eye contact </p></li><li><p>Be confident </p></li><li><p>Practice.Practice.Practice.Practice.Practice.</p></li><li><p>Thank you </p><p>Cikgu FadzliFaCulty of Informatics &amp; Computing</p><p>1st August 2016</p></li></ul>
