Effect of Notecard Restrictions on Student Presentations
Decker, Ronald; Tyler, Leon
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v10 Apr 2013
Student presentations are an integral part of many business course curricula. PowerPointâ„¢ and other presentation slideware offerings create opportunities for students to create text laden slides which are used as Teleprompters by less than fully-prepared presenters. Numerous prescriptions have been proposed for remedying text laden presentation slides. However, literature searches identify a paucity of research addressing the transfer of text from slides to notes when text restrictions are applied to students' presentation slides. This article addresses the impact on student perceptions of their preparation and presentation quality when text limitations are applied to both slides and speaker notes. It summarizes the thoughts and recommendations concerning multimedia presentations from a cross section of communications academics, practitioners and designers. The authors then present findings from a descriptive survey addressing student perceptions of their in-class presentations when stringent text restrictions are imposed on both visuals and notecards for a final presentation in a college of business capstone management course.
