This book is for you, the busy teacher or instructional designer. You already know that too much text on a slide is counterproductive to teaching and learning. But what to put there instead? Academic Slide Design offers a new vision and a new method for building more effective slides, starting with the lecture itself.
Inside you’ll find practical advice on white space, graphics, colors, fonts, composition, and more. Liberally illustrated with before and after examples, and enhanced with exercises you can work through on your own, this book is your companion for learning (or re-learning) visual techniques that will help students understand and remember content delivered during live lectures. Based on research in multimedia learning, universal design, visual perception, and graphic design, this book is not just about slides, it’s about effective visual communication for teaching and learning in the twenty-first century.
