  • I need a few tips..

    Hello all,

    I'm a pharmacist and will be teaching a goodly proprtion of the first year BTEC underpinning knowlege at the local college. Anything I should avoid doing? Anything a tutor has done that's irritated you/made life harder? I would prefer to learn from other's mistakes!!

    My big tip(s) - if you do powerpoint presentations

    1) Don't put massive amounts of text on slides
    2) Don't read word-for-word off slides
    3) Don't make it just black and white but don't go for contrasting colours (worst offenders are red, yellow and blue on same slide)
    4) Don't overanimate slides

    I hate this in lecturers and students alike when they are doing presentations. Maybe I'm just fussy, but I would prefer a simple basic summary slide with an interactive lecturer not an interactive presentation

      Just be an approachable tutor so your students feel ok about asking for your help...

        Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them.
        Any 'gimmicks' such as samples and demonstrations always liven things up.
