Presentation Design in 5 Minutes
A big hobby of mine is presentation techniques. This includes everything from planning, to delivery, to reviewing presentations. Today I gave a five-minute talk on slide design as part of a course I’m currently taking in scientific communication and academic writing. In the class, we have addressed presentations quite broadly; discussing tone, pace, language, structure and content, but we haven’t covered design in great detail. Thus, I decided to narrow in on that.
The feedback I got after delivery was positive, although I found myself looking for some words and therefore resolved to making a few dirty shortcuts. Why? I never rehearsed the whole talk. Lesson learned.
The slides on their own might not say much as they are only supposed to emphasize what message I as a presenter is wanting to communicate.
