Presentation Help

Effective presentation in any discipline not only requires a level of mastery of content but also an understanding of the audience with which you intend to communicate and the forms of communication that might be most effective in specific situations. Oral presentations, scholarly papers, infographics, etc., all have a place in telling the story of your research. Determining which of the aforementioned (or which combination) is the appropriate format is key to presentation and providing relevance of your research and topic.

Keep in mind the following questions for effective presentation in the sciences:

  • What does your audience already know?  
  • What is your audience most interested in learning about?  
  • How can you translate technical terms into plain language for a general audience?  
  • How can you leverage strategies for effective communication when creating your poster?  
  • What aspects of your research will you highlight?  
  • How will you make sure your poster is clear and readable?
