"Right. I don't think it works well with this type of class."
"What type is that?"
"This is a relatively small room. We'll be working on a lot of case examples with comments going back and forth. I'll need to be spontaneous. PowerPoint creates a barrier."
"They'll know that the slides were prepared in advance. It confines us to a set script. I don't want that. Besides, PowerPoint almost screams 'formal presentation.' I want more of an informal discussion."
"But you obviously planned your presentation. Are you saying that this is 'planned spontaneity?'"
"Oxymoronic but true. One of the goals is to have spontaneity without slipping into chaos. There has to be some order and flow. If all goes well, the boundaries won't be too noticeable."
"So only a flip chart?"
"Yes, a flip chart will do the trick. That way, the audience and I will discover every page together."
