As students learn in Bovee and Thill texts, the most important design decision for a presentation is whether to use conventional structured slides or the looser, free-form slides that many presentation specialists now advocate. If the text you're currently using is teaching only conventional bullet-point slide design, it isn't preparing students for the expectations of today's workplace.
