Tips for Editing and Using Slides Well

Updated: Aug 4



As we continue to meet together in our faculties, we can continue to use slide presentations during our faculty gatherings. A slides template may be included each week where it is encouraged that the slides can be customised and personalised to suit each faculty. Feel free to be creative and include additional content related to the main talk.

Hopefully this guide will provide inspiration into editing and using slides well during faculty gatherings.

General Tips

When editing slides for a faculty gathering:

  • Ensure the font size and colour is appropriate.

  • Be consistent with formatting for each slide.

  • Make sure the slides are easy to read and follow, and are in a suitable order.

  • Consider the time required for each slide.

  • Be creative e.g. include some images, transitions or animations.

  • Other presentation platforms can be used such as Canva.
