Final 2

  1. 1. Giving a technical presentation By Michael Ernst s1170137 Shiori Endo
  2. 2. Introduction Get feedback by giving a practice talk! One of the most effective ways to improve your work is to see the reactions of others and get their ideas and advice.
  3. 3. The content Do not try to do too much in a talk. About one slide per minute is a good pace (possibly more if lots of your slides are animations that take only moments to present). Don't present more information than your audience can grasp. This is related to the point that you should think about your key points and support only those.
  4. 4. The slide-1 Use descriptive slide titles. Do not use the same title on multiple slides (except perhaps when the slides constitute an animation). Don't put too much text (or other material) on a slide.
  5. 5. The slide-2 Images and visualizations are extremely helpful to your audience. Do not use eye candy such as transition effects, design elements that appear on every slide, or multi-color backgrounds.
  6. 6. The presentation Make eye contact with the audience. This draws them in and lets you know whether you are going too fast, too slow, or just right. When presenting to your own research group, be sure to leave lots of time for discussion and feedback at the end, and to present the material in a way that invites interaction after and perhaps during the talk.
  7. 7. Practice talks It can be a good idea to keep your practice talk audience relatively small ? certainly no more than 10 people. Consider videotaping yourself to see how you come across to others. This information can be a bit traumatic, but it is invaluable in helping you to improve.
  8. 8. Other resources Here are some other good resources for speakers who wish to give a good talk. See Ian Parberry's speaker's guide. The LaTeX Beamer documentation has some good advice. Craig Kaplan transcribed some presentation tips from an unknown source, via Edward Tufte.
