Guidelines for an Effective Presentation
Tell 'em what you're gonna tell 'em,
then tell 'em,
then tell 'em what you've told 'em.
- Devices for shaping a presentation in an effective perspective
- An informative title indicates the
scope of the presentation.
- In the introductory segment may "zoom in" to the topic.
Provided at the end, "zoom out ."
- Identify underlying questions presentation seeks to address
(long talk: divide questions into hierarchy of subquestions);
presentation is a series of answers to these questions.
- The mainstream of the talk should address a single focus issue,
tuned to the interest of the audience.
- Omit information not directly relevant to presentation's focus.
- Keep sidetracks brief and always return to the same point.
- Avoid backtracking.
- Statements -- make the main argument of the presentation --
should delineate a clear, logical line of thought.
- Unambiguously formulate scientific concepts. Be Clear
- Avoid professional jargon.
- End presentation with a clearly formulated, concise conclusion.
When this take-home message has been delivered, stop!
- Most importantly,
- communicate with your audience
(articulation & eye contact);
- convey enthusiasm about your work.
Your comments and
suggestions are appreciated.
