Less is more – Your slides should contain a minimum amount of information; your slide notes, on the other hand, will contain far more content. Uploaded resources will have the most content and detail.
Avoid PowerPointless – Create slides that are complementary to your remarks, not identical. Use slides as a canvas for visual representations, graphics and photos and avoid simply “echoing” your slides in your talk.
Keep it simple – Focus on one idea per slide and remember that the number of information chunks we can recall at a time is “Seven, Plus, or Minus Two.” Assemble your presentation slide in seven chunks, plus or minus two.
Extend the conversation – It’s OK to include “information” slides with resources and the like, but don’t spend time presenting that content. Upload additional resources to your session or create a handout.
Practice, practice, practice – There is no substitute for advance preparation. Practice your presentation before your colleagues and review your session description to ensure that your presentation mirrors what has been promoted.
