Research and Learning skills: Presentations

Presentations - Quick tips

  • Plan your presentation carefully

  • Don’t have too much text on slides. Use dot points and key words

  • Practice giving your presentation, by yourself and/or with a friend

  • Practice words that you find difficult to pronounce

  • Don’t read word-for-word from a script or slides

  • Don't rush. Speak more slowly and clearly than in conversation

  • Check your timing. Many students talk for too long

  • Check the facilities. Make sure you know how to use equipment and software
