How to Use PowerPoint
Regarding the previous question on how to use PowerPoint in presentations:
Might I suggest people follow the example of a mentor of mine, Dr. Craig Feied, Director of the National Center for Emergency Medicine Informatics.
Dr. Feied uses only pictures in his PowerPoint presentations and only the *highest* resolution pictures he can find.
*No words*. No bullet points. No titles.
He shows a new picture about every 10-15 seconds. Each picture further elaborates the point which he is making. The speed of picture change is slower than TV commercials, but much faster than the yawn inducing speed of 2-3 minutes per slide typically taught.
His lectures are enthralling and I have not used a bullet point since.
