Presenting as an Engineer or Scientist

The defaults of PowerPoint lead presenters to create slides that are ineffective for presentations in engineering and science. For one thing, the bullet-list default in the body leads users to write too much text. In addition, that default leads to cluttered slides because the bullet list crowds the graphics. The assertion-evidence (AE) approach helps you overcome the weak defaults of PowerPoint. Given below are short films that teach this approach. You are more than welcome to view or assign any of the films in this collection.
