Keeping in my my constant goal of managing the extraneous cognitive load of my teaching materials while simultaneously maintaining a high level of rigor, I have been tinkering with leveraging the "Speaker Notes" to streamline the location of project instructions, links, and rubrics.
See a few screenshots below from a recent project in my Biochemistry class where all instructions were provided in the Speaker Notes of the appropriate slide. I am enjoying this method of material delivery as it:
a) provides all resources for students in one location and...
b) allows for specific pieces of instruction to be strategically placed within their associated slide.
Additionally, the ability to hyperlink text to speaker notes allows for the inclusion of useful and expansive materials and instructions.
