Oral presentation helpful tips -

The time allocated for a presentation is 20 minutes, with a further 5 minutes allowed for discussion. Think in terms of the following slides:

  • A title slide – Name, Title and what the paper is about
  • One slide with the hypothesis you want to investigate
  • 2 or 3 slides covering your current research plan
  • You should not require any more than an absolute maximum of 10 slides – this would mean talking to each slide for only two minutes.
  • It is generally distracting to the audience to have too many slides in a short presentation
  • Do not put too much text on a slide – you want the audience to listen to you and not to be reading your slides!
