- [Voiceover] Welcome to PowerPoint for Teachers. I'm Faith Brill and in this course we'll transform the way you traditionally look at PowerPoint presentations as we create dynamic, interactive lessons and learning environments. You'll learn to develop student-centered, hands-on activities that will bring life to your instruction and effectively organize your day-to-day work. Whether you're new to using PowerPoint or have stocks of presentations in your tool kit, whether you're a K through 12 teacher or a higher ed professor teaching to a large lecture hall, this course is for anyone looking to create more engaging, dynamic learning experiences in their classroom.
Go beyond bulleted lists of text that you read aloud to your students while they take notes. Get ready to bring your presentations and your instruction to the next level.
