Breaking Bad Habits: Teaching Effective PowerPoint Use to Working Graduate Students
Vik, Gretchen N.
Business Communication Quarterly, v67 n2 p225-228 2004
One interesting aspect of teaching students to use PowerPoint and similar graphics packages effectively is that graduate students who are already in the workforce often have bad presentation habits that they need to break. In this article, the author discusses ways of breaking these bad habits. Using storyboards is one way to keep students from putting a whole written report on their slides. Storyboards also focus the presentation planning on main points, analysis, and answers rather than on mere information.
