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