Oral Presentation Rules and Guidelines
Class presentations will be 10 minutes in length and must use PowerPoint or equivalent. Details to be discussed in class.
Your presentation should be between 9 and 10 minutes long. You will lose points if it is shorter or longer. A small sign will be held up when there are 2 minutes left and again at 1 minute. At the 10 minute mark you will have to stop. There will be 2-3 minutes for questions.
I know this is a tight schedule but we have limited time available to us. You will all evaluate (anonymously) each presentation using this Oral Presentation Rubric (click here).
Here is a PowerPoint of suggestions for preparing the content, structure, and style of oral presentations (click here). This was written for a slightly different audience than our course but most info applies.
