Twenty Percent, Lots More Space, Couple Of Minutes discussed on The A&P Professor

The A&P Professor


Then but if you have a big giant title that's taking up twenty percent or more of your slide and then you try to fit an image of the kidney and then you try to fit. All these words describing. Let's say the parts of the kidney. then how golly. That's not gonna work very well least in my experience. That doesn't work very well. Get rid of that darn title. Now you've got lots more space and then stretch that image out now you gotta stretch your proportionally in. I'll come back around to that idea and a couple of minutes but the idea is that you wanna make that image as big as possible because that way the students can read the labels that are on the image if you have any label. It's you know Image from your textbook for example and not only the labels might be important but also the details if all they see is the rough outline of kidney It looks like a beam. And that's all i can get out of that slide. I can't see with that instructors. Talking about about you know pyramids in kayla season and columns and cortex All that stuff on now they need to be able to see that stuff so you need to have a big kidney where the parts are easily. Not that stained by squinting in in in you know moving your head up a little bit asking the person in front of you. What is that little dark spot there. Nano you want big so everybody can see it easily. Even people that maybe can't see so well. I mean cutting used to seeing things pretty well. I have a really good optometrist. But not everybody can do that. We wanted big in move. The taxed way off to the side or even overlap the texts over the The image a little bit because a lot of those images have a lot of white space built into them anyway. Have to be in a box. That's totally separate from the image. If there's room put it in there now. This takes some finesse to make it. So it's not so confusing. Or jumbled together that students aren't going to be easily be able to to interpret what's going on there but you can do it. It just takes some practicing. It takes a good i and and What am i secret. Weapons is looking at it again later. Setting it aside go do something else comeback. Look at it again later. And you'll see like oh my gosh. I know that all run stick together. I can't tell what it is. I better fix that. So yeah okay. Let's let's try to you. Know have the texan image on the same slide. And let's make it so. The image is featured in the tax does not feature. And let's be creative. Let's literally go outside the box listener boxes of the template. Think outside those boxes in think about how. It's going to be best for teaching and speaking of artwork in images that we're using and i mentioned you know if you're using image from the textbook make sure the it's enlarged enough on the slide that the students can actually read the labels in if they can't then you're gonna have to edit in your own labels or cover up the labels or something like that because students are gonna try if you think. Oh they don't need to read the label so took if they're small need them looking at the labels. They're going to try anyway. And what is there squinting and trying to read those labels. You know what they're not doing. They're not listening to you. Tell your story. And that's the whole point is to hear you tell your story that's part of your job you're conveying the story or if it's not you maybe it's you know part of a discussion but there can be focusing on that so i tried to read those labels..
