Giving Feedback on Students’ PowerPoints

Module by: The Cain Project in Engineering and Professional Communication. E-mail the author

Summary: This set of 20 slides was developed to help faculty provide feedback to students on their oral presentations. The slides establish expectations for an effective presentation, suggest strategies for providing feedback to students, and identify other Cain Project presentation resources.

This PowerPoint presentation explores ways for instructors to give feedback that emphasizes the process, rather than the product, of PowerPoint design. The presentation defines accessibility, comprehensibility, usability, and interpersonal/intercultural appropriateness as criteria to apply to PowerPoint slides. Several examples of common errors and appropriate revisions are included.

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
