How to give a research powerpoint presentation

1 May

*stick with topic.

*relevant points and references that are accurate.

* Building up a story (What the question, why important, what new?)

* Remember to describe methods in order they happen.  Before I care about what the stimuli looked like, I want a feeling of where the participant was seated. How far from the screen, etc etc.   LIKE YOU ARE DIRECTING A MOVIE!

* Make slides more visual, pretend your audience is a subject in the study, what did they see, for how long  etc.

Some more general tips:

  • legibility – make sure the font style suits your purposes and that the colors and font size is appropriate for distance reading
  • keep everything uniform. That doesn’t necessarily mean ‘all the same,’ but that your formatting has a system
  • make sure the conclusions and content are mostly about YOUR PROJECT, and not other people’s publications
  • simplify technical talk; it’s easier to verbally be explained a complex idea than to read about it

Class Presentations of Lab 1

I wish that I had a video camera today when my class was presenting their results from lab 1!  They were just perfect!

How often can a professor say that nearly 20 students gave optimal presentations!    Is it the blog? The professor?  A very smart group of students?  Only a study can tell us for sure!

Speaking of smart.. many of them dressed very “smart”   .. that’s British English for they looked as great as they presented!
