7 Simple Rules For Making Slides That Make Sense

Presented by:

Refresher Training. LLC / Signature Productions, LLC

a virtual event with ATD Tulsa

Friday, August 20, 2021

12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. CDT

Virtual Event (via Zoom)

Presentation slides are our visual voice—the way we communicate visually. Yet we see (and yes, sometimes even create) slides so overcrowded with words, images, and data that we have no earthly idea what the slides are saying! Whether we're presenting to the executive team or to newly hired employees, our slides need to clearly, visually, and SIMPLY communicate our point. For professionals who deliver presentations that are intended to move our organizations and its people forward (nowadays, who doesn't?) and for professionals who design those presentations, the ability to make clean, crisp, engaging slides that make sense is mission critical.

This session combines the science of learning with seven super easy-to-apply rules for designing presentation slides that help learners and audience members see your point. Since the rules are rooted in neuroscience, the session will include a brief summary of how the brain processes words, images, and data followed by an introduction of the seven rules. Each rule will be described, discussed and demonstrated using real-life slide examples with varying levels of complexity.

Attendees will have opportunities to discuss various ways to apply the rules to sample slides and/or their own slides. They'll practice applying the rules during the session and plan at least one action step toward applying the rules in their real world. 

In this session, participants will:

  • Select the key idea for presentation slides in order to focus the audience’s attention.
  • Apply the rules for creating slides that clearly communicate using words, images, and/or data.
  • Identify one presentation to which they can apply one or more of the rules in the next 30 days.

This session falls under the Instructional Design and Technology Application Capabilities under the Developing Professional Capabilities domain of the ATD Capability ModelTo learn more about this model, go to: https://tdcapability.org/#/
