presentation offences (4)

1. Having more slides in your slide-deck than you actually speak to.

2. Having more text written on your slides than you actually say.

3. Lack of ‘signposts’.

4. Complete lack of imagery.

Polaroid_croppedThe reason you are using slides (I hope) is because it adds a visual element to your presentation. Please use some pictures. They might be of your research site, or of you at work, or of your research subject. Or you can use images released under creative commons licences, like those available at stock.xchng or Wikipedia Commons. But please, make the most of the visual medium and move beyond text in bullet points.
