Background: Embryology is a visual subject that relies heavily on illustrations in understanding the subject, as most of the structures are not seen by naked eyes. Embryology lectures have mostly delivered using PowerPoint slides to show the microscopic structures involved during various stages of development. However, the styles of projecting the illustrations on PowerPoint slides differs greatly among the teachers. This different style of presentation is the deciding factors which makes the classes interesting or not. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess the preferences of different styles used by the teachers in presenting Embryology illustrations in PowerPoint slides resulting in students becoming better and lifelong learners. Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in the Department of Anatomy, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University using self-administered questionnaire collected from 40 anatomists of Bangladesh who teaches embryology using PowerPoint Slides in their classes. Results: Judging by the preferences of the anatomists, using more illustration than text, light homogeneous background, labelling only the relevant parts and using the collected illustration after making the labels larger were found most preferred by the teachers in presenting embryology illustrations in PowerPoint slides, which they felt would be more effective in understanding the subject. Conclusion: The idea on common preferred styles in presenting Embryology illustrations in PowerPoint slides should benefit the learners by capturing their focus and attention on the topic to enhance learning.
