Review

Let's review what we've learned so far about making your project into a presentation.

  • Turning an academic project into a presentation can be a challenge, but think about it as an opportunity to show your work in a different way.
  • You'll need to think about the structure of your presentation and preparing professional slides, as well as pronunciation of key words and phrases.
  • Your presentation should be logical and follow the same structure as your project – don't change things too much!
  • Memorising your presentation is a bad idea! You run the risk of sounding boring and may have problems if you forget any words in the presentation.
  • Make a list of key words in your presentation – practise pronouncing these correctly so that the audience can follow what you're saying.
  • Keep your slides clear and simple – this will help your audience follow the topic of your presentation.
  • Pay attention to the size and colour of text on your presentation slides – you need to make sure it is easy to read.
  • Think about how you're going to present your topic – movement, eye contact, managing the audience and dealing with questions are all important.
