​Needs to update the content presentation ... 2-3 mins video

Break it in to 2 parts. One for the Elements and another for the Principles of Design. That way the student can process & my mental connections to the information ... answer the questions more confidently. Have a online/ hardcopy form with the questions to have the kinesthetic learning also.

Thanks for posting. We created numerous presentations like this for many art topics including art historical topics. Often 30 slides or more. Now we are redesigning them to "chunk" them into smaller portions, but "meatier" in quality. We focus on one key topic for the unit. Present no more than 10 slides and narrow the focus yet go deeper in it's presentation -- as we know 1 visual does tell all the sides to these elements and principles. What I do like are your frequent review questions within the presentation, which I would use as a writing exercise. Laughing

I'd agree with your suggestion Penny.

Thanks for the posting! I think it is very useful, but I wonder if it wouldn't be a great project for your students to submit re-design ideas for the presentation itself!

I'm afraid that I have to agree with some of the above remarks. Nevertheless I think it was good of you to make this posting. Constructive criticism is always good.

True, strong design presentation should engage the audience, then communicate the message as briefly as possible. High-impact design is brief and focused. See

Too long winded for effective use in a classroom.

I know.... That is why I get people with actual design talent to come and talk to the class. Smile

This presentation needs to follow some of its own advice about the language of design. The content is fine but the presentation looks terrible.
