CTL Guide: Creating Engaging Slides

Slides frequently serve as the foundation for lectures and lesson plans. They can either complement or confuse an instructor’s verbal message, so taking some time to think about the design and structure of your slide presentations can really pay off. The Center for Teaching & Learning highlights a variety of useful principals to create engaging classroom visuals.
