About the Course
This seminar is an intensive writing course in media studies and communication technologies. It requires writing skills and critical thinking abilities to understand and critique the foundations, conceptual frameworks, theories, media studies, social media and development of communication technologies. It also intends to discuss the main principles, and introduces practical and professional guidelines to assist students-future practitioners- to come to grips with critical media studies as related to technical issues and communication law and regulations.  This course also offers several approaches to understanding communication technology pertinent to social, cultural, economic, and political issues. It strives to reestablish the notion that the history of communication technology is as much about ideas and practices as it is about events and things. Some important scholarly debates about the focus of media studies and new communication technologies.

Tips and General Guides for an Effective PowerPoint Presentation

-"5 by 5 RULE: The five by five rule is to limit yourself to five lines of text per slide and no more than 5 words per line.

-FONT: Keep the font sizes of your title lines no greater than 36-point. You may use 60 points for your main titles.

-You might consider using ALL BOLD fonts in presentations.

-When you want to emphasize a point use a different color for the font, italicize the text or underline it.

-Contrast your text and background colors. You may use shadows for improved legibility.

-Don't overuse effects or overcrowd slides.

-Think like someone in your audience. Picture what your audience will be seeing and hearing. Spend more time on content than on design issues.

-Storyboard your presentation. PowerPoint helps you think structurally about your presentation. You know you need an introduction, a body, main points, all supported with arguments, stories and examples and a conclusion with at least two questions to engage your audience in a good discussion.

-Do not use a lot of images and photos. If necessary, use separate slide for each image or photo.
