Slides on Writing
This web page presents a free collection of teaching slides for you, the instructor, to use when you discuss presentations in your engineering and science courses. These slides have been used with much success in presentation courses for engineers and scientists at Sandia National Laboratories and several universities including the University of Barcelona, the University of Oslo, and Virginia Tech. More than 200 instructors around the world have obtained these slides. The slides are available in a computer file for two reasons: (1) to allow you to make a computer presentation, and (2) to allow you to modify the text to suit your needs (modification is fine as long as you continue to credit the source). The program used to generate these slides is Microsoft PowerPoint.
