Transcript of "Final presentations guidelines cgt512 "

  1. 1. Final presentation(s) Guidelines – please customize them to your needs. Ask me questions anytime
  2. 2. Presentations purpose 1. To show and celebrate the work you have done this semester 2. To show how you used the UCD process to create a new product 3. To present usability testing findings (this is part of #2 for groups that are continuing work on their prototype)
  3. 3. General approach 1. Tell the story of your work 2. Do not get lost in details. Focus on the big, important parts. 3. Persuade the audience that your product/work is worth investing in/listening to/implementing. Pitch.
  4. 4. Some advice about pitching • Use a problem-solution format. • First, establish that there is a problem that needs solving. • Then, present your solution. • Establish credibility – your credentials, your methods, your processes should give the audience faith that your solution is worthy of their attention and $$$. • End with a call to action – for a real pitch, ask for another meeting, or money.
  5. 5. Time guidelines • About 10 minutes for each presentation (10 on UCD process and 10 on usability testing). • Short presentations are HARD. Make careful selections about what you include. Exclude until you cannot exclude anymore! Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. Antoine de Saint-Exupery French writer (1900 - 1944)
  6. 6. Slides and visual aids • Use them or not. Up to you. • If you use them, they should not look like this one! • One idea per slide. • Make it BIG. • Make it VISUAL. • Interpretive dance OK. http://news.sciencemag.org/ biology/2013/11/dance-yourph.d.-finalists-announced
  7. 7. Grading • No grading. Helpful feedback from everyone. • Do it out of pride for your work. • Do it well because good presentations are one of the most important skills in life and they are difficult – so use this opportunity to practice. • (and do it because you will lose APP points if you don’t) • Do you want to invite guests? You can do that, too.
