  3. 3. Effective Presentations
  4. 4. Goals <ul><li>A presentation is a reflection of you and your work. You want to make the best possible impression in the short amount of time given you. </li></ul><ul><li>This session will cover: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How to prepare for a presentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guidelines for creating effective slides. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Guiding Principles <ul><li>Make it simple. </li></ul><ul><li>Make it clear. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t let the technology dominate the presentation. You want the audience to remember the quality of your research, not your PowerPoint wizardry. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Preparation <ul><li>What are the key points you want to make? </li></ul><ul><li>Who is your audience? What are they interested in hearing and how familiar are they with your topic? Do they expect data or concepts? </li></ul><ul><li>Remember: A presentation is different than a paper. Don’t try to cover everything. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Logistics <ul><li>How big is the hall where you will be speaking? </li></ul><ul><li>How much time will you be given? </li></ul><ul><li>What time of day is your talk? </li></ul><ul><li>Carefully consider if you will depend on anyone else for producing your presentation—allow plenty of lead time. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Equipment Needs <ul><li>Ask what you will be given and what you must bring with you. </li></ul><ul><li>Consider all equipment you will need— </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Internet connection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Computer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Microphone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Software </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Disaster Planning <ul><li>Consider what could go wrong and plan accordingly. </li></ul><ul><li>Always have a backup. </li></ul><ul><li>Bring a handout that covers all of your slides. Make sure they are legible. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Organize the Material Introduction <ul><li>Time to sell your idea or research. </li></ul><ul><li>Answer the question, “Why should I listen to you?” </li></ul><ul><li>Establish your personal credibility. </li></ul>
  11. 11. General Format Rules <ul><li>Stick to a maximum of two READABLE typefaces. </li></ul><ul><li>Limit the use of color. </li></ul><ul><li>Pick a style and stick with it. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it short, especially titles. </li></ul><ul><li>Leave empty space. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Presenting Data <ul><li>Make data/results the focus of your presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t try to include all data—use handouts for detailed information or refer audience to a Web site. </li></ul><ul><li>Use color or special effects sparingly and consistently. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Final Steps <ul><li>Practice! Recruit a friendly and constructively critical audience. </li></ul><ul><li>Recruit a grammar expert. </li></ul><ul><li>Show your presentation to someone who knows nothing about your field. Do they get what you want to say? </li></ul>
  14. 14. Design Tips <ul><li>Fonts: </li></ul><ul><li>Use upper and lower case lettering compared to all caps. </li></ul><ul><li>Lines and rules should be thick or bold. </li></ul><ul><li>Use font sizes large enough to view from anywhere in the room. </li></ul><ul><li>Try not to use fonts smaller than 28pt (anything less than 18pt will be illegible to an audience). </li></ul>
  15. 15. Group Activities <ul><li>Games </li></ul><ul><li>Simulations </li></ul><ul><li>Role-playing, </li></ul><ul><li>Team-building exercises </li></ul><ul><li>Brainstorming </li></ul>
  16. 16. Dealing with difficult situations <ul><li>The group remains silent. </li></ul><ul><li>Things are moving too fast. </li></ul><ul><li>Things are moving too slowly. </li></ul><ul><li>A talkative participant. </li></ul><ul><li>A silent participant. </li></ul><ul><li>The typical know-all. </li></ul><ul><li>Sessions getting sidetracked. </li></ul>
