Title: Effective Oral Presentations EGR 105 Fall 2008

Effective Oral PresentationsEGR 105 Fall 2008
What Should You Present?
  • Introduction
  • Capture Audiences Attention
  • Body
  • Cover the Essential Points
  • Highlights Only, Not Too Much Detail !
  • Summary Conclusions
  • What Makes Your Results Special?

Presentation Materials
  • Slides as a Visual Aid
  • Not too many
  • Allow about 1/2 - 1 minute for each
  • Keep them simple (1-2 ideas/slide)
  • Use of PowerPoint
  • Commonly available
  • Greatly simplifies your presentation
  • However, can be easily abused

Using Diagrams
  • There are exceptions, but
  • dont have only text on your slides
  • try to draw diagrams wherever applicable
  • (Well-drawn) pictures are easier to understand

Showing Results
  • Dont do thisToo many numbers that no one can
  • Graphs aremuch better

But Graphs Can Also be Misused
(To Many Plots in One Place!)
Poor Color Choice Example
Can You Read This?
Formatting the Slides
  • No sentences, just words/phrases
  • Large fonts (18 point or more, but avoid frilly
  • Fully label tables and graphs
  • Be neat
  • No cheesy images
  • Select colors carefully
  • Limit the use of sound and animations(Probably
    just skip this idea for EGR 105)

Presentation Style
  • Remember, Youre Selling Your Presentation
  • Forget that youre a student
  • Project a positive attitude
  • Generate enthusiasm
  • Speak to the Entire Audience
  • Make eye contact
  • Speak clearly, slowly, and loudly
  • Usually the audience is quite receptive

Presentation Tips
  • Organize, Practice and Time Your Talk. You only
    have a few minutes, no more !!
  • Use notes if you need them, but PowerPoint should
    provide you with cues as each slide is displayed

Presentation Details
  • Each student will have about 6 minutes
  • You should prepare one title slide followed by
    about 5-7 other slides to explain your points
  • At the end of each talk, there may be time for
    one or two questions
  • All PP presentations will have to be loaded onto
    the PC in Room 212 before class starts. You
    should send me your talk (via email) the day
    before class, and I will load them.

Topic ChoiceSomething that will be straight
forward to present
  • Easy to find information on topic
  • Be able to select and capture graphics to show
  • Be able to explain not too complicated
  • Be able to make conclusions on topic
  • Should have technical/engineering flavor
