    I’ve come to the discussion a little late but I’d agree with the comments above re the contiguity principle as it was laid out in the article but the discussion and @david’s example help clarify that.

    The principle that might not work so well I’d say is the redundancy principle, as @georgie_l already pointed out, your text may serve as a model. Also, it depends on the purpose of your slides, and whether the slides are not only for presentation purposes but also for students to review after class.

    As for David’s question about EFL/EAP conferences and the vast majority of presentations having reams of text on each slide, this reminds me also of uni poster day and poster after poster of impenetrable text…perhaps we all need this course?!
