Guidelines for Creating Powerpoint Slides

Learning Objectives for Your Presentation

Writing the Learning Objectives for Your Presentation:

  • Statements which describe what audience will achieve as a result of the presentation
  • NOT an outline of what will cover or a list of what you as the presenter will be do


As you plan objectives, think about the answers to these questions:

  • What do you want audience to know after your presentation?
  • What do you want audience to be able to do after your presentation?
  • What do you want audience to feel after your presentation?

Examples of verbs include: identify, understand, explain, differentiate, apply, demonstrate, predict, analyze.

Examples of learning objectives include:

  • Discuss the possible complications from knee arthroscopy.
  • List the treatment options for osteoarthritis.
