To assist students in their presentations, encourage them to:
  • Explain the problem being explored in their presentation
  • Explain the process that will be used to solve the problem
  • Clearly structure their presentation
  • Clearly deliver their presentation.

Students need feedback on the content of their presentation as well as their presentation style.
Be sure to:

  • Be encouraging when providing feedback
  • Always include some positive feedback
  • Provide any criticism in a constructive manner (e.g.'Jack you might find it helpful to keep your hands by your side. It would help people focus on the message you're delivering').

Try not to interrupt a presentation. If you need to do so:

  • Excuse yourself
  • Make your point
  • Invite comment
  • Then say 'please carry on'.
