Giving a technical presentation (giving a scientific talk) by Michael Ernst January, 2005 Last updated: March 29, 2016 Contents: Introduction (Also see my advice on giving a job talk and on making a technical poster.) There are many good references regarding how to give an effective talk — that is, a technical presentation, whether at a conference, to your research group, or as an invited speaker at another university or research laboratory. Get feedback by giving a practice talk! Think about the presentations you attend (or have attended in the past), especially if they are similar in some way to yours. The content Before you start preparing a talk, you need to know your goal and know your audience. The goal of a talk you give to your research group is to get feedback to help you improve your research and your understanding of it, so you should plan for a very interactive style, with lots of questions throughout. When you give a talk, ask yourself, “What are the key points that my audience should take away from the talk?” The slides Slide titles.

Effective Presentations in Engineering and Science: Guidelines and Video Examples - VISUAL AIDS Visual aids are an important factor in a successful engineering or science presentation, and as a speaker, you should give careful consideration to your approach to visual aids. Unfortunately, many presenters rely on the default settings provided by PowerPoint to create slides for their presentations. Typically, this approach results in tiresome slides heavy with bulleted text and perhaps an occasional image. As a presenter, you should consider if this traditional slide design is in fact the best method for communicating scientific information. What research exists that supports the effectiveness of much bulleted text and the occasional image for the communication of scientific information? Since slides are omnipresent in technical presentations, this question deserves some consideration. Here, we strongly advocate for the use of the Assertion-Evidence slide design as a more effective alternative to the traditional bulleted text approach. So, how should you get started?
