“Death by PowerPoint: Instructional Don’ts and Do’s with Funny, Real Examples”


Dr. Shawn Glynn – January 20, 2011

“Death by PowerPoint” refers to a state of student boredom and frustration induced by information overload, excessive use of the software’s features, and instructors who simply read the slides. PowerPoint (PP) can be a convenient prop for poor instructors.  PP undermines learning when it reduces complicated ideas to simple bullet points and elevate style over substance. This presentation by Shawn Glynn will illustrate how to use PowerPoint effectively and avoid its pitfalls. Audience discussion will accompany the presentation.
