I hope I'm directing this...
I hope I'm directing this question to the proper expert but here goes. I'm giving a series of 6 scientific lectures on 2 days (3 per day). They are PowerPoint, but my concern is that in the time allotted to me, I'm going to overload them with information and that they may "glaze over." I am planning to add illustrations and anecdotes to break up the monotony, but do you have any suggestions about additional filler material I can add that will offer relief? I'm trying to think of some sort of educational game but haven't really done anything with this idea so far. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thank you.
