Powerpoint Best Practices, Ethics in EMS and Personal Mission Statement
In the class PowerPoint Best Practices, we will discuss and define the term “Death by Powerpoint”. We will discuss how PPT is meant to supplement, support and augment the teacher, not overshadow them. We will discuss how the presentation should be kept consistent and at the same time simple. During the presentation, we will explain how bullet points should be kept at a minimum or eliminated altogether. We will discuss the 1-6-6 and 10-10-30 guidelines. By the end of the class, the educators will have a new insight on just what PPT is and how it should be used.
