Presentations: planning & structure


Successful presentations depend on good preparation.  If you are giving a presentation as part of your course, you should be given clear guidelines on what you are expected to do; using these guidelines will help you to plan effectively.

The Library has lots of books about planning, designing, practicing and delivering presentations (e.g. Posters and presentations by Emily Bethell, Clare Milsom).  You can use the Skills collection in the Laidlaw Library to find similar books with advice on giving presentations. 

This tutorial will help you to think about how to plan your presentation effectively.
