Tips From the TAS:

  1. **** FOLLOW THE CRITIQUE SHEETS **** and practice in front of friends and get feedback!  Have them TIME you.
  2. Audience ACTION and Mental Dialog needs to be obvious in persuasive presentations
  3. The presentation Ending should be separate from the Restate Must Knows
  4. The Objective must clearly state how the audience will be changed by your presentation: "After my presentation you will _______".
  5. Preview must be clear
  6. Speakers are responsible for knowing how to use the AV equipment - practice ahead of time, and pre-load your ppt or video 10 minutes before lab starts.
  7. Pace: go slower than you think you should.
  8. Pause for EFFECT must be obvious (at least two full seconds of silence)
