Topic Five: Let's Get Started

Congratulations! You have reached the final week of Facilitating Using PowerPointIt is recommended that you complete all the activities by the 19th of October.

This week you will evaluate your interactive training session using the PowerPoint slide set as a resource.

tip

PowerPoint Tip! Have a hook! Like the best writing, the best presentation shook their audiences early and then reel them in. Open with something surprising or intriguing, something that will get your audience to sit up and take notice.

Ask questions! Questions arouse interest, pique curiosity, and engage audiences. So ask a lot of them. Build tension by posing a question and letting your audience stew a moment before moving to the next slide with the answer.


Let's get started with Topic Five.....

After your training session

After your facilitation of the session in which you used PowerPoint slides, debrief it with your mentor/assessor. Upload your mentor's observation checklist to the portfolio forum.
