Giving presentations

The basic structure of a presentation should include:

  • An introduction of yourself or your group
  • Brief description (overview) of what your presentation is about
  • Main body of presentation
  • Summary and questions

In your overview, it’s often a good idea to indicate:

  • How long the presentation will be (short; in depth; 15 minutes)
  • If there will be a break say when and for how long
  • If you prefer questions throughout of only at the end (please save questions until the end; I will welcome all questions at the end; please feel free to ask any questions you might have during the presentation; please let me know if you have questions at any point)
