Some tips from Joe on presenting:
I just finished a class critiquing 25 presentations from students. Here are some minor points that came up that might be helpful to others.
Leave it up long enough for audience to digest (Title, date, presenters)
Must have page numbers and perhaps also the title or names of presenter(s)
Have an outline slide
Perhaps a running outline down the side, if it can be tight
Keep slides clean
No extra unecessary graphics
Apply some color
To emphasize key points (but not too much)
Have a cue
On the last slide, indicate that the presentation is over and Q/A ready to go.
The most important points I emphasize to them to make the best presentation is:
1. Preparation — know what you are talking about, make good slides.
2. Practice, practice, practice.
3. Practice, practice, practice.
Thanks for sharing Joe.
