PowerPoint Slides

You will find here 33 sets of PowerPoint slides as follows:

  • one set of slides relating to the book’s Introduction;
  • three sets relating to each of the book’s ten theory chapters;
  • two sets relating to the concluding chapter.

The PowerPoint slides are not intended as off-the-shelf lecture presentations. Rather, like the other materials offered here, they are offered as a resource that you can draw on selectively, adapt, and use in whatever way you consider appropriate to your specific teaching needs.

The slides follow the text of the book closely. They are provided in a plain format, with no images or animation. This allows you to amend, illustrate, and animate them as you choose and incorporate them in your lectures as you see fit. Although the slides are offered here in a didactic style, many of them are suited to a participative style of presentation. Some suggestions for participative activities, which will encourage students to contribute to content in an interactive manner, are offered in the notes pages.

The slides include reference to the Theory in Practice exercises and Video Activities that appear in the book in case you wish to incorporate these into your lectures (see below for sample answers). I have also referred on the notes pages of the slides to lecture exercises (see below) and additional videos (see below) that you might wish to use in your lectures.
