Using Powerpoint Effectively

By •• Posted in Teaching

tufte_columbiaI’ve collected various PowerPoint resources and links on a single page. These include my Using Powerpoint Effectively Handout and information about Edward Tufte, who has written extensively on the use and abuse of this ubiquitous tool. He is shown here explaining PowerPoint’s role in the Columbia disaster. PowerPoint was built for marketing and is great for making a pitch to a potential customer. But colleagues and students rarely want a marketing pitch. Instead they need audiovisuals that support and clarify what the speaker has to say.
