Oral Health Research Project: creating the presentation slides

Plan

This week you will create your presentation slides for your oral health research project/presentation, then upload them into VoiceThread to narrate them. Your Oral Presentation must have 8 slides, following the format of the slide planner below.

 

Effective Use of Multi-Media: education and learning research shows:

Key Findings

  • Multimedia Narration with pictures (visuals) is better than narration alone.
  • Modality Principle. People learn better when words are presented as narration rather than
  • Redundancy People learn better from narration & graphics rather than narration, graphics, & text.
  • Coherence Principle. People learn better when extraneous visual material is

Practical Implications for better slide Presentations

  • Presentations must be both verbal &
  • Too much slide information overloads people’s cognitive
  • Can your visuals be understood in a few seconds? If not, redesign them to support your
  • Slide design & delivery must help people organize, integrate

Presentation Slides and Effective Visuals

Garr Reynolds’ book Presentation Zen is a great introduction to effective use of slides in presentations. Garr also maintains a great blog on presentations (http://www.presentationzen.com/) , click on this link to watch his 15 minute TED talk on designing engaging presentations. Here is a summary of the key points from Presentation Zen:

  • Keep it simple. Your slides should complement your verbal message, not detract from it by unnecessary visual In many instances, students should be able to take in your slides in a second or two, then focus on you.

 

  • Limit bullet points and Keep in mind that your slides probably shouldn’t function as your own personal teleprompter. Your slides are for your students’ benefit. If your slides say just about everything that you say, then your students won’t know where to pay attention–to you or to your slides.

 

  • Use high-quality The clip art that comes with PowerPoint is certainly convenient (and more visually appealing than it used to be), but there are online sources of free, high-resolution images that can have much greater visual impact. For instance, millions of photos are available for free, educational use on the photo-sharing site Flickr (http://flickr.com/) under the Creative Commons license (http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/) .

 

  • Use appropriate charts. As analytical designer Edward Tufte

(http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/) likes to point out, PowerPoint is not a great tool at sharing complicated infographics. If you have a complicated chart or graphic to share with your students, it’s often helpful to provide it to them

as a handout. Simpler, more elegant charts often work better in PowerPoint. Think carefully about which kind of chart (pie, vertical bar, horizontal bar, line, etc.) will best communicate the idea you want to share with your students.

 

  • Choose your fonts Sans-serif fonts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sans-serif) are often easier to read on slides than serif fonts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serif) . Too many different fonts in a slide or a presentation can be distracted, so try to limit yourself to one or two. Font size matters, too. Be sure that your fonts are large enough to be read at the back of the room. And if you’re keeping your slides simple and limiting your use of text, you can usually use very large fonts.

 

  • Spend time in the slide sorter. This is the PowerPoint view that shows you several slides at As you start to design your presentation, this view is more useful than the default one-slide-at-a-time view for structuring and organizing your content.

 

DH 200: Planner for oral research presentation slides

Directions: This is a template to help you plan and organize your presentation slides. This week you will create your presentation slides for your oral health research project, then upload them into VoiceThread to narrate them. Your Oral Research Project Presentation must be 5-6 minutes in length, no more, with 8 slides. This form will not be graded, it is to help you organize your presentation.

Planning by slide number:

Slide # Subject or content Does it include: learning activities, assessments, research, images

Do you need to gather any more resources?

1 Introduction slide: provide an introduction on the dental/oral health research topic they are presenting. Indicate why you chose the topic.
2 History of product: explain history and background information on the topic. What are the important implications for both the dental professional and patients related to the topic?

 

3 For product research discuss: health, safety considerations, the indications and contraindications for use of the product, dosing, frequency of use, the active ingredient(s) or technology of the product and the mechanism of action, does the product have ADA &/or FDA approval, show the correct use the product/oral hygiene aid by the use of clear graphics or a short video?

 

For other research topics discuss: health implications, the link between dental and general heath, medication considerations, what should be dental professional provide to the patient in terms of screenings, education and referrals? Have a clear picture/graphic that adds understanding to the topic.

 

4 Evidence based research article #1 (cite the study by name, and discuss the findings of the journal article, include an appropriate graphic or chart or table)
5 Evidence based research article #2 (cite the study by name, and discuss the findings of the journal article, include an appropriate graphic or chart or table)
6 Evidence based research article #3 (cite the study by name, and discuss the findings of the journal article, include an appropriate graphic or chart or table)
7 Summary/Conclusion:summarize 2-3 of the most important points in the research presentation. State why this is important to dental professionals and patients. Share any additional resources for persons interested in following up on the topic.

 

8 References cited from a minimum of 3 current evidence-based studies correctly using NLM format on the last slide. All references from reputable, evidence-based sources, including any websites used for information for the research presentation.
