1 never face the screen giving your back to your

This preview shows page 3 - 6 out of 7 pages.

1)- NEVER FACE THE SCREEN, GIVING YOUR BACK TO YOUR AUDIENCE (If you lose your place or forget a key term in your presentation, simply glance or peek at either your notes on a paper or the screen) 2)- NEVER READ WORD BY WORD, ESPECIALLY FROM THE SCREEN (It defeats the purpose of having a presentation to begin with)...if for whatever reason the point of a certain slide is a busy/wordy one, simply ask someone from the audience to read a part or entire slide. That way you are not boring the audience. 3)- NEVER HAVE YOUR HANDS IN YOUR PANT'S POCKETS (very unprofessional) 4)- ALWAYS PROVIDE A DEFINITION AND EXAMPLE OF ITEM YOU ARE EXPLAINING (Maybe even an illustration or two to make it more attractive, thus audience pay more attention to your presentation) 5)- COLOR SCHEME ON SLIDES HUGELY IMPORTANT (If you have a dark background, fonts should be light or bright; if you have a light or bright background, your fonts should be dark...you want to create contrast) 6)- FOR THOSE 10-12 MINUTES, YOU ARE THE EXPERT ON YOUR PRESENTATION TOPIC (You, the presenter, will know every definition of every word in that presentation, everything spelled correctly, everything pronounced appropriately) 7) AS A MEMBER OF THE AUDIENCE, CERTAIN BEHAVIORAL ETIQUETTE IS EXPECTED (No gadgets on, No typing, No talking, No making any noise, No walking in or out, No opening of the door while the presentation is in progress)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
