PowerPoint Whiteboarding

It’s always hard to keep students engaged and listening during a class and especially so during a long one.¬† Here are five¬† “low tech” suggestions for teaching with slides from a university professor:

  1. Design the slides so that particular content is missing, allowing for interaction and construction with the students
  2. Project the slides over a whiteboard
  3. Use markers to fill-in-the-blanks and to comment/expand on the content
  4. Invite students to take notes and build the content during the class
  5. Take a digital photograph of the whiteboard before erasing.

Here are some photographs I received from him that give a better idea:
