It operates like an old-fashioned slide show, but uses modern technology in the form of computers and digital projectors rather than a slide projector of old. This more in depth description will detail what PowerPoint is and why you would want use it. http://presentationsoft.about.com/od/powerpoint101/a/begin_guide.htm General Presentation Check the spelling and grammar. Do not read the presentation. Practice the presentation so you can speak from bullet points. The text should be a cue for the presenter rather than a message for the viewer. Give a brief overview at the start. Then present the information. Finally review important points. It is often more effective to have bulleted points appear one at a time so the audience listens to the presenter rather than reading the screen. Use a wireless mouse or pick up the wired mouse so you can move around as you speak. If sound effects are used, wait until the sound has finished to speak. If the content is complex, print out the slides so the audience can take notes. Do not turn your back on the audience. Try to position the monitor so you can speak from it. PICTURES VIDEOS

Conference Presentations

Transcript: Preparing for a Conference Presentation Start with some basic logistical information Where do I start? Basic Info You will be given a set amount of time to talk about your project to an audience of your peers and take questions from them Opportunity to connect and collaborate Can be used to polish a paper for publication What is a conference paper? What is a conference Presnentation? Three places to start My presentaion proposal has been accepted. Now what? Assume 2-2.5 minutes per double-spaced page, or approximately 10 pages for a 20 minute speech Stay within your time limit some people in charge of panels may just give you a warning, but occasionally they will stop you at the 20 minute mark--it’s better to not have that problem to begin with How long will you be given to speak? How long will you be given to speak? This information will tell you how to prepare and practice. A round table discussion Reading the paper means you need to have your paper in-hand to read Visual aids can be very valuable, but take time to prepare Is the format a round table discussion or reading the paper? Can you use visual aids? Are you expected to? What is the Format? Many times a scholar will be selected to read all the panel papers in advance and comment on them at the end Get your paper to them on time Who do you need to send it to and when? Who do you need to send a draft to and when? I'm scared of them, but also want them to engage me. How do I do that? Your audience Engage your Audience Write to Talk Remember: Formal written English is different than formal spoken English Vary sentence length and refer to your visual aids (if you have any) Think about your tone and body language Mark your paper with places you will want to change your tone, pause, breath, or gesture to your visual aid (if you have one) Print your speech in a large enough font (14-16pt) that you won’t have any trouble reading it How do I adapt my paper into a speech? Practice Practice enough that: You know the pace you need to follow You can look up at the audience occasionally You know what words or phrases to emphasize You won’t trip over difficult phrases, words, or names How much should I Practice? Do they understand? Avoid complex sentences with multiple clauses. They’re harder to follow when spoken. Decide on 3-5 takeaways that you want your audience to remember, and work those in multiple times This means you will repeat key points and words more often than you would in writing Again, spoken English is different than written English Limit text on your slides to those important keywords as well as visual transitions markers and images that hammer your points home How do I help my audience follow what I'm saying? I'll just throw some stuff up on a powerpoint... What about the visual aid? Visual Aids Do they really matter? Visual aids can make a significant difference in your overall presentation's efficacy Prioritize important points on your visual aid, in writing and/or in a graphic to make your audience catch, understand, and remember them Are you trying to simplify a complex idea, or problematize a simple idea? 1. Reinforcing your audience’s understanding When you have a lot to cover and not enough time, you can put details like bibliographical information or charts with statistics on your slides and simply summarize their significance to your presentation Use titles and colors to indicate transitions to your audience 2. Saying things for you How do you want your audience to feel? What kinds of color schemes, images, and even fonts express those things? 3. Evoking moods and emotions What should I include? On average, assume you will have time for one slide per minute max A useful template for organizing your slides: 1 slide to introduce the title, who you are, and where you are from 1 slide to introduce the main questions and arguments that you will discuss 1 slide to give a brief outline of the organization of your talk 2 slides for background information 1 slide for methodological information 4 slides for your argument and evidence 1 slide to resummarize your argument and its implications Use your last slide to suggest future research Slide organization “Use quotations and examples judiciously. Listeners have difficulty absorbing abstraction after abstraction; they need to be grounded in lived experience. Think about the ratio between example and argument as your paper develops.” Linda K Kerber, chronicle.com Not too much text How do I use them? Use your body language or a pointer to refer to them when they have the same information or more information than you are saying Consider including: Thesis and other important arguments Important terms, difficult/foreign words, names, bibliographical information Visual cues for new sections of your work to help Quotes or quotes with complex sentences Visual aids should always support you, the main focus of the presentations Visual aids should not distract the audience or come across as off-topic How do I
