Looking for ways to incorporate active learning techniques when using PowerPoint? Here are three useful resources:
- Twelve Active Learning Strategies for PowerPoint (U of Minnesota)
- Rethinking the Design of PowerPoint – advocates a structure where an assertion is made, then supported by visual evidence (Michael Alley, Penn State)
- Active Learning with PowerPoint (Sharon Huston, U of Maryland)
