Learning Objectives

  • Incorporate best practices for presenting from slides.
  • Learn citation standards for slides.

Giving a presentation is a great way to practise speaking in front of others, presenting material from another source, summarizing, and engaging your classmates. Presentations are typically assigned either to individuals or groups. Depending on the class, presentations can last anywhere from five minutes to an hour.
