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.
