Oral Presentation Guidelines

  • Oral Presentations should be no longer than 1-2 minutes
  • Project presenters should be prepared to give this "overview" talk repeatedly to BOOM visitors and encourage questions.

Oral Presentation Tips

  • Rehearse - practice makes perfect.
  • Give an opening statement to acquaint the audience with the nature and purpose fo the study.
  • State clearly, in laymen's terms. Plan to give a talk that will be understood to people outside of your research area.
  • *Do not read your paper*, instead, use an outline of key points and transitions.
