It's that sort of naming convention that makes Organic Chemistry fun!
Nice link. But I still think 5+ bullet point starts to get confusing.
Thanks. I had never heard of it but it makes sense. I think in the areas I have worked 10 slides are too few but more than about 20 are too many. Other than that it is very close to how I like to operate.
Which is a misuse of Powerpoint.
I've posted this elsewhere. After reading this you should be a skeptic:
More people need to read up on this experiment:
They ran into serious problems and that was on a system located on Earth and well stocked. Martian colonies are a pipe dream. We know very little about the oceans, let's explore those first.
One 'institute' after another banging that drum. We need to make sure a different story gets out.
Civil and Environmental Engineering are also hard to offshore. As are forestry, extractive industries, agriculture, recreation and tourism. There are probably more but I can't think of them.
+1. Slides are note cards giving an outline. Some information is easier to explain with diagrams, charts and graphs, or video. Use graphics well. Keep the slides simple with 3 to 7 points per slide (to cater to human short term memory) with about one slide for every one to two minutes. No more than 30 to 40 slides for a one hour session including anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes for Q&A.
and stop after an hour. A presentation which takes more than an hour is fundamentally flawed IMO. If you must go longer take about 5 to 10 minute break each hour.
Build your presentation to how humans operate.
"this is largely a function of screen resolution and visible font size"
Wrong. It is limited by how much and how fast the human mind can absorb. Short-term memory varies from about 3 to 7 items. So I never put more than five items on a slide. First think about how the human mind operates, then pick your fonts etc. If you are finding yourself using smaller and smaller fonts you are not using the slides correcty.
I am so totally going to steal that.
