While Powerpoint presentations may sometimes be a good approach (as well as
prepare students for teaching techniques used in university lectures), I have
seen them used ineffectively more times than not. As a student, I find that
professors who use Powerpoint often forget the importance of classroom
interactivity. Other times, I have seen teachers with prepared slides move
through the material much faster than the students can process it. So long as
one is mindful of these concerns, Powerpoint can be an interesting way of
presenting new material.
