Oral Presentation Help
Here you will find links TCP-developed material to help you get started on and guide you through various aspects of the oral presentation process.
Oral Presentation Workshops
The workshops take place for an hour, twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays 6-7pm in Towne 337), and provide students with an opportunity to practice their presentations with a real audience. The audience will consist of TCP Fellows, other presenters for the day, and anyone else who is interested in listening to the presentation and learning about presentations.
How it works
A student/group must make an appointment with a Fellow to go over their presentation before they can present at a workshop. The Fellow, after meeting with a student/group, puts the student/group's name(s) on the next available presentation slot.
At the beginning of each workshop, Fellows will go over tips for oral presentations. There will be three 15-minute slots per session. Times will be observed rigorously. Each slot will allow time for Q&A with the audience, and feedback from Fellows. At the end of each session, Fellows can answer questions the presenters or people in the audience may have about presenting.
Parts of sessions can be dedicated to poster sessions if need be.
- Introdcution and presentation tips from TCP Fellows (5 minutes)
- Three (3) presentations including Q&A with presentors and feedback from Fellows (15 minutes each with 1-minute change over)
