PowerPoint Boot Camp

PowerPoint for Beginners 10:00 AM – 10:50 PM 

Why not use PowerPoint to enhance your lectures?  PowerPoint can help students learn.  First, it is a nice supplement to add to lectures and adds needed variety.  Second, even if you don't want to use PowerPoint in the classroom presentations can be distributed to students allowing them to view lectures from home.  After only 50 minutes you will be able to create a PowerPoint presentation!  

Effective PowerPoint  11:00 AM – 12:00 PM 

Want to use PowerPoint effectively in the classroom, but not sure how to go about it?  PowerPoint can be a valuable classroom tool if used correctly – or a nightmare of distractions and boring slides if not.  In Effective PowerPoint, we will discuss good vs. bad PowerPoint design.  You will learn how to recognize problems in your own presentations and discover ways to improve them.  We will also go over the techniques for designing an effective PowerPoint presentation from scratch.  There will be a question and answer session, and if time permits, a short “How-To” demonstration on adding simple graphics, animation, and sound.  You are welcome to bring your own PowerPoint projects to work on with TLC staff after the workshop is over.
