Recommendations to Make a Good Presentation
- Its contents should be structured and have the following parts: title, introduction, methods, results, discussion, etc.
- Presentations should not contain full paragraphs of text. Use a bulleted list or outline format and elaborate on the points in your talk.
- Create a logical flow for your presentation.
- Used fonts should be in sans serif type (like Arial or Helvetica). This is because, when projected on a screen, letters lose some of their sharpness, and serif type (like Times) can look muddy.
- Use large fonts, as big as realistically possible. Small fonts are hard to read.
- Use contrasting colors either a dark background with light text or a light background with dark text.
- Avoid busy backgrounds that will make the text hard to read. Keep the background simple.
- Limit your graphics to 1-3 per page. Too many graphics can be distracting.
- Avoid all CAPITAL LETTERS IN YOUR TEXT. It will look like you’re shouting.
- Include a good combination of words, pictures, and graphics. Variety keeps the presentation interesting.
- Slides are designed to supplement your presentation, not to be your presentation. Keep it simple, and don’t read your presentation word tor word from your slides.
- Speak loudly and articulate.
