Illinois Nano EP Seminar Series Spring 2011: Improve Presentation Slides with Visual Explanations
The evidence from learning science suggests that adding visuals to the text of instructional materials can help students learn better (Mayer 2001). If you are looking for a way to improve the usefulness of your lecture presentation slides, exploring ways to include visual explanations might be time well spent. I’ll also present engineering educator Prof. Michael Alley’s “assertion-evidence” format for presentation slides.
