Overton: Study and Communication Skills for the Chemical Sciences

PowerPoint slides

Tina Overton has provided examples of good and bad practice when creating PowerPoint slides. Click the links below to open the examples in PowerPoint. Each slide includes notes commenting on the design.

First look at the bad examples:

1. Poor colour choice and over-fussy animation (PPT)

2. Poor presentation of table (PPT)

3. Too much information (PPT)

Then see how they could be improved:

1. Sensible colour design and good use of animation (PPT)

2. Good presentation of a table (PPT)

3. Uncluttered design and simple use of colour (PPT)
