If you're looking to get started with a LaTeX presentation, this template is for you! You can customise the look and feel of your presentation by choosing your preferred combination of Theme and Color Theme. Click the image above to get started, and try changing the theme to "Madrid" to get the look shown. For more hints and tips on creating presentations with Beamer, checkout Part 3 of our free introduction to LaTeX course.
As part of our Community Resources for teachers running courses, workshops and events, here we provide an Overleaf-version of the excellent quick guide to LaTeX, originally by Dave Richeson (reproduced with his kind permission).
This version is perfect for sharing as a PDF, or as a two-sided printed handout. If you'd like to tweak it to suit your workshop, you can open it as a template to make edits to the source. Please note that the Overleaf logos themselves shouldn't be altered, but you can find alternative versions here if you'd prefer. If you make substantial edits to the template, or find other uses for it, please let us know!
We also have a complementary PDF listing the Overleaf keyboard shortcuts, available here.
If you're looking for a fuller guide to LaTeX to share with you students, we have a free online course, a learn LaTeX in 30-minutes quick start guide, and many other in-depth tutorials and examples on our learn wiki.
License note: the text content / source code of the handout is provided under the CC BY 4.0 license, as is Dave Richeson's original version. If you modify the template, guidance on the use of the Overleaf logos is available here.
Template gifted to the UPenn community under the intention of helping alleviate workload for the Writing Seminar Craft of Prose.
Reading this, I hope you pay it forward by helping others around you and the broader community.
