Suggestions from TAs:
must focus on how the audience will be changed. To say "today I'm
going to tell you about...." is NOT an objective. To say "after
my presentation you will know......." IS an objective.
for EFFECT! Figure out where you want the adience to really pay
attention, and insert the pause (2 full seconds) there.
must knows must not be categorical. State SPECIFICALLY what you
want the audience to remember. Say "remember to always ask if a
blind person would like your help, and what they would like you to do".
Saying "today I talked about what to do and not to do" is not a
restate of must knows.
- End Powerfully! Figure out and deliver a memorable ending. The last words you should say are "Thank You".
you use presentation software (PowerPoint, Google Presentations) make
sure you can project in presentation (full-screen) mode. Minimize
Text (no bullets!) and insert blank BLACK slides in between your images
so the audience will focus on you when you are not talking about a
specific image. Source all images.
- Talk to the audience, not the screen. Turn the monitor so you can see it.
crossing legs, leaning on a desk, hands in pockets, or the Slow Rock N
Roll! Move naturally and return to the neutral stance.
you are stating a statistic or "fact" that is not common knowledge,
tell the audience where the information comes from (source/cite it).
- Hooks: Asking for a show of hands is getting old. Here are some other suggestions.
a "Plan B" if something goes wrong with the technology: print any
images you are going to show so you can either use the document camera
or pass them around.
- Other general suggestions.
